Ushio Opens New Poland Facility

PASS, Poland, Nov. 20, 2017 — Lighting manufacturer Ushio Poland has opened a new facility in Pass with a production area of 5,000 sq m, more than double the size of its previous production space.

The facility houses two production lines that primarily manufacture metal halide and high-pressure sodium lamps as part of the TOPFLOOD and HORTURION series — both trademarks of BLV Licht- und Vakuumtech-nik GmbH, a member of Ushio Europe Group.

This investment aims to strengthen the company’s horticulture business by increasing production capacities to meet the demands of the growing global market and explore future potential within the sector. New farming technologies, including the growing trend toward urban farming and a professionalization of the horticulture business outside Europe, are cited as drivers of market growth.

In a bid for maximum efficiency and streamlined processes, the entire production is consolidated over just one floor space, facilitating optimal production conditions and further refining the logistics process. The new operation now enables even shorter delivery times to customers and greater efficiency overall. Furthermore, the new set-up is spearheaded by a dedicated quality assurance team.

The new factory comes after a recent name change for the lighting manufacturer, previously known as Natrium since its inception in 1998. Initially established as a research and development department for an electric lamp manufacturing plant in Warsaw, it was relocated to its own premises in Blonie Pass. After being acquired by BLV-Licht in 2006, Natrium was eventually renamed Ushio Poland in 2016.

The Ushio Europe Group is an industrial lighting manufacturer. BLV Licht- und Vakuumtechnik GmbH, a member of Ushio Europe Group, manufactures special lighting for applications in horticulture, aquariums and sports facilities.
