Ushio Europe opens new factory in Poland

Technology and New Products

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.
