North Andover, MA (November 11, 2010)–L-com has completed its new facility near Shanghai. The company has sold U.S.-manufactured products into the Chinese market since late 2007.
The company, which manufactures wired and wireless connectivity products, now has fourr full-service business locations; the others are located in Massachusetts, Florida, and at its global headquarters in North Andover, MA.
“We needed additional manufacturing capacity to meet growing global demand, but the new China facility is more than just another factory; it provides a local sales and customer service platform to serve our fastest-growing markets in China and the rest of Asia,” said Ed Caselden, L-com’s president and CEO. L-com is currently expanding its sales force in China and training its Chinese customer service group.
“As soon as you walk in the door of the China facility, you can see it is a world-class operation,” said Thomas Barczak, Vice President of Operations. “Every functional area – sales, customer service, manufacturing and logistics – is laid out efficiently with state-of-the art equipment, training facilities and infrastructure for maximum productivity. Plus there’s plenty of room for growth.”
According to Barczak, “The new facility leverages L-com’s global strengths in customer service, product design, manufacturing processes and quality control, which will extend our long-term competitive advantage into Asian markets.”
Barczak temporarily relocated to China to help launch L-com’s new full-service facility.
