With an investment of 374 million pesos, New Lighting Technologies, manufacturer of luminaires for the public and private sector, opened its second plant in the State of Nuevo Leon.

Carlos Knight director and founder of the company specified that the new plant will produce about 64,000 luminaires per month in a single shift. However, he detailed that during the year a second shift will be added and therefore production will increase to 90,000 luminaires per month.

This new plant, which will generate 84 sources of employment, adds to the one New Lighting Technologies founded in 2010 in Monterrey, where currently are produced 30,000 luminaires per month in a single shift and 85 people work.



In addition to providing quality work, Carlos Knight explained that due to the good market acceptance, the New Lighting Technologies' goal is to reach producing at least half a million luminaires by the end of this year.

“With the three shifts we are talking about being able to reach the annual million luminaires, which is what we are looking for to establish a quantitative line of plant capacity, without discrediting the quality of the product,” said the director.



New Lighting Technologies was recognized by the Ministry of Economy with the “Made in Mexico” insignia, because 70 percent of luminaire components were made in the country, Knight said, who added that it is important to support Mexican labor.



Some of the States where the company has placed luminarias are Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Tabasco and Coahuila.

Regarding the placement of luminaires in Coahuila, the mayor of Moncolva, Gerardo Garcia said that his municipality acquired a contract with New Lighting Technologies because its products illuminate seven times better than previously had LED technology.
