RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif.—VSP Global plans to expand the Sacramento location of its innovation center. Opened in midtown in 2013, the facility will transition to a new 16,200 square foot leased space in The Cannery office park on Alhambra Boulevard later this year, according to a VSP Global announcement. “Innovation has been integral to VSP since our founding and we’re excited to see that spirit continue to flourish today,” said VSP Global chief technology officer Earnie Franklin. “This expansion will allow us to increase our enterprise-wide innovation efforts to create more value and gain competitive strength across our products and businesses.”

The move will more than triple the size of the facility, which focuses on developing technologies for the digital and physical aspects of eyewear and eyecare.

“VSP has been part of the Sacramento business community for over half a century,” said VSP Global president and CEO Michael Guyette. “When we can reinvest in the region, expand our footprint, and bring in more opportunities for exciting and dynamic jobs like those within our Global Technology Solutions division and our innovation lab, it’s a win for VSP and it’s a win for Sacramento.”
