LED lighting specialist, Grote Industries, has celebrated the grand opening of its new European headquarters in Bogen, Germany.
Grote’s new 4,645m2 Bavarian facility represents a US$11 million commitment, and will reportedly include a technology development and testing center, an expanded manufacturing capability and will act as a logistics hub for European distribution.
Construction for the new Bogen facility began in September 2015 and is now fully operational, and the grand opening took place on 7 July.
“In the last five years we have seen incredible growth and new opportunities for Grote LED products and services,” said Dominic Grote, President and CEO of Grote Industries.
“We are excited about our future here in Europe and this investment in people and capability puts us in an even better position to support our partner customers and the continued growth of our business.”
The Bogen facility joins five other Grote locations in the US, Canada, Mexico, and China.
