Hacienda has seen a steady increase in occupancy over the last year and the park's tenants have been busy growing as well.
New tenant arrivals are from a variety of industries and are reflective of some of the stronger clusters found in the area, according to James Paxson, Hacienda's general manager. In addition, expansions within the park from existing tenants have also occurred.
"Hacienda has continued to see growth in 2013 that will carry over into the new year," Paxson said. "Beyond the business growth seen, what is particularly exciting to watch are the important contributions Hacienda companies make to their respective industries and to the local economy."
Paxson summarized some of the activities in Hacienda in the past three months:
Clarity Medical Systems
Clarity Medical Systems was been awarded two patents related to technology in the company's latest offering. One was for a device for refractive cataract surgery, capturing and displaying with high-accuracy continuous streaming and real-time refractive wavefront measurements during vision correction procedures, including overlaying data on a live image of the patient's eye.
"We believe this unique capability will provide the opportunity to deploy HOLOS to help ophthalmologists more rapidly and efficiently measure the patient's refractive state during vision correction procedures, including assisting surgeons as a refractive guidance tool intraoperatively," said Clarity president and CEO Keith Mullowney.
The second patent is for the attachment of the compact HOLOS wavefront sensor onto a surgical microscope.
Adept Technology, Inc. recently introduced a number of primary and secondary food packaging robots and peripherals which are designed specifically to help food processing companies to meet new government safety and sanitation mandates, lower labor costs, and future-proof packaging lines.
"Food processors are looking to robotic automation with integrated vision and conveyor control to provide the speed and efficiency of hard automation but with flexibility for quick changeover between products," said Glenn Hewson, Adept senior vice president of Marketing.
"Robotic automation can also help processors dramatically lower distribution labor costs by processing mixed-product specific store orders on the secondary packaging line and eliminating repacking at distribution warehouses," he added.
Paxson said Hacienda also welcomed a number of new tenants to the park in recent months and had some businesses expand. These included:

PLEASANTON, Calif. The lifts will be raising Hacienda's annual holiday decorations this Friday, November 22, 2013. Continuing a fine tradition, the installation will be done once again by long-standing Pleasanton business, T. Marshall Electric, who has performed this work for Hacienda for well over a decade. The installations will begin early in the morning and will continue through the weekend, weather permitting.
"We are excited to help bring a festive look to North Pleasanton and to join in with the community in celebrating the season." said James Paxson, Hacienda's general manager. "Pleasanton has many wonderful seasonal traditions and we enjoy being a part those each year."
Each year, Hacienda's distinctive wreaths are hung from the arches at Hopyard Road and Stoneridge Drive, and Hacienda Drive and Interstate 580. Decorative accents are also included at all four of Hacienda's feature intersections which, in addition to the two just noted, include Hacienda Drive and Stoneridge Drive, and Hacienda Drive and Owens Drive. Kathy Miller, T. Marshall Electric, notes, "It's a great feeling to help bring the start of the holiday season to Hacienda and Pleasanton."
