inTEST names VP of human resources; invests in new facilities to streamline operations

inTEST Corp., a Mount Laurel-based supplier of precision-engineered solutions, on Wednesday announced it appointed Meghan Blount as vice president of human resources.

Blount joins inTEST following seven years at ABB, a $60 billion global technology company with more than 100,000 employees worldwide, where she held various roles of increasing responsibility. Most recently, she was global human resources partner for its Electrification Information Systems Business.

“Meghan is a multifaceted professional in human capital and brings broad expertise in talent management, staff development and continuous improvement to inTEST. I believe she will be instrumental in advancing our culture and a key partner in achieving our 5-point strategy,” said Nick Grant, inTEST CEO and president. “I have had the opportunity to work with Meghan in the past and have seen how effective she is with employee engagement, talent selection and human resource planning. Her proven track record of success in aligning business needs with human capital is an important addition to our capabilities as we execute game-changing strategic initiatives.”

The news of the latest executive appointment comes on the heels of the company announcing the opening of new office in Fremont, California, after consolidating manufacturing for its backend semi technologies into its Mount Laurel facility to improve operating costs and centralize operations.

The company also said it recently upgraded the facilities of its digital streaming and image capturing solutions business in the Netherlands and has relocated its design, sales and manufacturing facility to the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.
