LSG Realigns Manufacturing Operations with Jabil
Lighting Science Group Corporation, one of the world’s leading LED lighting manufacturers, announced that it is realigning its manufacturing operations to capitalize on increasing market demand for its LED lighting products, while positioning the company for long-term growth and profitability.
To enhance its market position, the company is channeling its assets and capital to support innovation, product development, sales, marketing, distribution and its US-based manufacturing. In an effort to respond quickly to growing customer demand, Lighting Science Group is also expanding its relationship with world-class electronics manufacturer, Jabil Circuit, which will provide the company with greater scale, global production capabilities, a stronger supply chain and faster speed to market for its new products.
Between September and December 2012, Lighting Science Group will transition its manufacturing production in Monterrey, Mexico, to Jabil. The transition is planned to ensure uninterrupted delivery of products to the market. Once the transition is complete, production will cease at the Monterrey facility. Additionally, the company is increasing investments in its Satellite Beach, Florida manufacturing facility, where it will focus primarily on the production of large-scale, custom lighting products and its infrastructure and roadway product lines.
