Neutex Lighting “Made in America” Featured on ABC News
Neutex Lighting, producers of innovative, energy-efficient LED and other advanced technology lighting applications were featured during a February segment of ABC World News‘ “Made in America” Series, hosted by Diane Sawyer.
Highlighted in the report by David Muir, the “Made in America” piece focused on Neutex’s opening of their 40,000 square foot Houston, Texas, corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility and their continued efforts to transfer the majority of their manufacturing processes from China to the United States.
The jobs that Neutex foresees bringing to Houston job market were strongly featured; the day of the show’s taping coincided with the first Neutex job fair, hosted by SER-Jobs Houston.
Although the reasons for the move from China were discussed at length in the piece, “Neutex President and CEO John C. Higgins explained that there are still some who don’t get it: “I’ve gotten into arguments with other CEOs on flights (about moving the manufacturing back home to Houston from China).”
Earlier in the day local ABC affiliate KTRK Channel 13 stopped by the Neutex facility to meet with Higgins and the team, as well. In that report, local viewers learned more about the very products that Neutex will be producing, assembled entirely by US Armed Forces veterans.
