Planning a major expansion for early 2014, Amerlux will relocate its Fairfield, N.J., corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities to a new 190,000-sq.-ft. facility in Oakland, N.J. The company manufactures energy-efficient interior and exterior lighting for the retail, supermarket, and commercial market segments.
The facility, featuring lean manufacturing processes, will have 70 percent more space than the company’s current plant. It will house showroom displays, testing areas, and a location to hold lighting designer CPE courses.
New metal fabrication equipment and automated powder coating operations will be installed for upgraded production, while customer service and support offices will be reconfigured to improve efficiencies.
