Evluma Moves To Expanded Manufacturing Campus In Renton, Washington
According to the firm, its new facility “embraces lean manufacturing philosophies and increases Evluma's manufacturing capacity by up to five times. The new site provides room to expand, allowing Evluma to bring on additional lean lines in parallel with demand.” Evluma said it is making its move to better serve and support their customer base.
“Evluma celebrates six successful years in business by thanking our customers and improving our support to them by shortening lead times, strengthening quality, and controlling costs,” said David Tanonis, VP of Sales and Marketing. The newly remodeled, larger manufacturing site features custom designed Lean lines built by WorkSmart Systems, Peabody, MA, and packaging systems by Instapak iMold. The site also provides additional shipping docks, increasing customer truckload and LTL shipping options, a larger will call area for servicing Seattle-based customers, and an expanded R&D laboratory for its award winning development team.
Combined with a Lean philosophy, the new site, dedicated to the science of LED lighting, is instrumental to Evluma's mission. “Lean enterprises rely on a people-oriented point of view. People have always been one of our strengths. Evluma fosters a manufacturing ideology that brings our team together with our customers to make the best lighting products possible,” said President/CEO Keith Miller.
Company officials said Evluma's current product line will benefit from the new assembly system. Future products will be designed on Lean principles leading to faster time to market.
