A German company with global reach has extended its grasp into Savage's Eagle Creek Industrial Park.

In early November, Savage saw the arrival of Sick Inc. a major producer of fiber optic sensors, scanners and other vision-based reading systems. Sick has expanded its production and warehousing facilities in Minnesota and relocated them all to the Eagle Creek. According to the trade publication, Robotics Online, the 50,000-square-foot space in Savage doubles Sick’s total floor space in the Twin Cities region. About 100 employees now work in Savage.

The expansion project is Sick's third since opening a subsidiary in the Twin Cities in 1976. The company's North American headquarters will remain in Bloomington.

Sick's devices allow machines to automatically sort, tabulate, inspect, measure, and recognize goods. The company's patented products have applications in the automotive industry, packaging, electronics, food and beverage production, postal services, and many other fields.
