Revolution Lighting Technologies Inc. will expand its Simi Valley production facility to meet the demand for its LED lighting products.
Revolution, in Stamford, Conn., will double the footprint of its area manufacturing plant to 125,000 square feet. The Simi Valley factory, which opened last year, produces LEDs compliant with the Buy American Act and Trade Agreements Act that require federal agencies to first consider American-made products over foreign ones.
Revolution Chief Executive Robert LaPenta said the Simi Valley location was opened to provide opportunity for its business in the federal, military and municipal markets.
“As a result of this success, we are expanding our facility to increase capacity, positioning our company to support increased revenue opportunities for not only LED tubes, but the anticipated demand growth for (Buy American Act and Trade Agreements Act) LED fixtures, which we believe can be a key revenue driver moving forward,” LaPenta said in a statement.
The facility has made lights used at Parris Island Marine Corps Base, Tinker Air Force Base, Veterans Administration Hospital sites in California and Nevada and battleship New Jersey, anchored in Camden, N.J.
