The custom production facility is located in Woburn, MA, and will also become home to Fusion Optix's new production line, set to come on board later this year.
"We have experienced a tremendous amount of growth in the past year which resulted in the need for a larger facility, mainly for more production space," Fusion Optix CEO, Terry Yeo said. "Being in Woburn puts us closer to some of our key customers and will allow us to grow more in the next few months and years." The company was formerly headquartered in Cambridge, MA.
Michael Demas, Director of Operations at Fusion Optix, chose the space because of the production area: "The new facility is just another step in our expansion as we continue to service more of the world's most demanding OEMs."
The new facility houses Fusion Optix's film line, as well as lamination, die cutting, thermoforming, laser cutting, and machine shop equipment.
In addition to production, the new facility incorporates the Fusion Optix Technology and Engineering Center (FOTEC) and accommodates more product development and testing space.
"As we grow, so does our product line. Our product development team now has more room to build and test the innovative LED systems we are becoming known for," Yeo said. FOTEC has a full range of rapid prototyping equipment, optical test equipment, and an integrating chamber to characterize larger systems.
Yeo commented, "There is no denying the benefits of solid state lighting, and more and more fluorescent lighting companies are releasing improved, efficient versions of their popular fixtures. We are dedicated to furthering green lighting through our efficient optical components, LED assemblies, and innovative systems, and we believe this move signifies an overarching desire to expand capabilities that will help us meet our, and the world's, energy goals. From EnergyStar-rated appliances to a comprehensive recycling program that includes our own product materials, the new headquarters has the symbols of Fusion Optix's commitment to green."
