Iomega, which employs about 1,500 in Roy, Utah, about 30 miles from Salt Lake City, also has looked at other sites in Boulder County and in other states, said Dave Correll, director of corporate facilities. The StorageTek building encompasses about 500,000 square feet.
"We have looked at that StorageTek building. We have looked at other options in Boulder County, and we are looking at the long-range strategy on where we ought to be in Iomega as we grow," Correll said.
In May, Iomega opened a research and development facility in Longmont with about 30 employees. Project manager Randy Bauck said Iomega recently has entered the digital camera business with its new "Click" product research.
"The company˜s expanding, and this is an area with a lot of technical people in the same industry with the same skills we need to grow," Bauck said.
Iomega is known in the industry for its Zip-drive technology, a stand-alone computer-storage drive sold directly to customers.
