Ushio Europe opens new factory in Poland
Ushio Poland officially opened the doors last month to its new factory in Pass, just outside Warsaw.
The new building has a production area of 5,000 square meters and dwarfs its predecessor, which housed its production lines in just 2,000 square meters of space. It is home to a total of two production lines primarily manufacturing metal halide and high-pressure sodium lamps for the horticulture business as part of the Topflood and Horturion series, both trademarks of and sold by BLV Licht und Vakuumtechnik GmbH, a member of Ushio Europe Group.
The opening ceremony was attended by Satoru Takahashi, general counsel of the Japanese Embassy in Poland; Marek Ksiazek, vice mayor of Blonie City; Kenji Hamashima, CEO and president of Ushio Inc., and Hiroshi Matsubara, CEO of Ushio Europe. The new factory debuts after a recent name change for the lighting manufacturer, previously known as Natrium since its inception in 1998.
