USA / North America
We've completed some good-sized projects in USA, including two for Meta at their Hudson Yards campus
on the West Side of Manhattan, New York City.
The cultural / commercial fit is good, the projects were successful and we developed a deep appreciation for doing business in North America.
We managed compliance / certification via ETL in the UK (ETL owner 'Intertek' is a UK PLC) which achieved the legal / technical requirements but their process is sub-optimal and not one we'd choose to repeat.
Instead, for social, environmental and commercial reasons we plan to serve future North America projects via local assembly and certification - either through a local joint venture, or if the project(s) is big enough, via our own wholly-owned USA subsidiary.
We've invested several years finessing all that's required to assemble our products in a small and efficient footprint, the hard work of establishing a parallel production line in North America is already done.
If you have a project or relevant commercial interest in USA or Canada - get in touch, we'll be happy to share the latest update on this developing story - Factorylux is coming to North America and you can be a part of it 🎉.
