Signify to Open North American Production Facility

Signify  has announced plans to significantly reduce delivery times for Philips GreenPower LED customers in North America as it adds a horti LED production line at its existing luminaire factory in Camargo, Mexico.

Previously, the LEDs were only manufactured in Sucha Beskidzka, Poland.

“We are very excited that we can enhance our support to customers in North America by reducing their delivery times — it’s a necessity,” said Udo van Slooten, Signify’s Business Leader Horticulture. “We see very strong demand for horticultural LEDs as customers increasingly understand the benefits: improved predictability, higher quality product and higher yields. Particularly the strong increase in number of customers in the fruit, vegetables, floriculture and cannabis segments in the last two years, meant that we needed to make steps to deliver faster to this important market.”

Currently, products are manufactured in Europe and then transported to North America by boat. The products that are manufactured in Mexico will directly be shipped to customers in North America, resulting in fewer delays and making shipments more reliable. Signify will continue to produce Philips GreenPower LEDs in Europe to service customers in other parts of the world.

The Philips GreenPower LED range includes toplighting, interlighting, flowering lamps and production modules.
