Milpitas, CA – Leotek, a global pioneer in solid-state Light-Emitting Diode technology since 1992, is pleased to announce the relocation of the company’s headquarters and U.S. manufacturing operations to a new, larger facility in Silicon Valley, California.

Steve Bacilieri, President, states “The phenomenal growth of Leotek’s core business groups - LED lighting for Traffic Signals, Commercial and Industrial applications, and National Accounts - demanded the expansion to this new facility. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the transition is the added improvement to Leotek’s customer service. The three to four week shipping period for products formerly manufactured in Taiwan will be eliminated, allowing our lead times to decrease to between one and three weeks. Furthermore, there will be much greater flexibility with special options, accessories and finishes for products.”

Chris Nye, Director of Commercial and Industrial Lighting, noted “Because we are now manufacturing our GreenCobra™ LED street light at this new facility, with American workers, this innovative product now meets the Buy American provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.”

The Milpitas headquarters will accommodate Leotek’s manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution operations, as well as the accounting, engineering, material control, customer service and sales departments.
