Jesco Lighting Group announced a major impending expansion of the company before the end of 2013.
The new building, which Jesco has purchased, is 3 1/2 miles off of the Long Island Expressway, Route 495, northeast from the company’s present location in Glendale, Queens. JESCO will move from a two-story brick structure it had substantially renovated at least twice as additional product lines, people, services and equipment had frequently been added.
Jesco's new building is a significantly larger 70,000-square-foot, modern steel-frame, brick and glass two-story air-conditioned contemporary structure, on approximately 4 acres in a modern industrial park, with 100-percent on-site parking, delivery and shipping accommodations. Two-stories of office and customer service space, research, testing, engineering and product development facilities occupy 15,000-plus square feet. Product assembly, customization and high-ceiling computerized warehousing make up the rest of the approximate 55,000 square feet.
“Jesco Lighting Group is one of the modern energy-conserving lighting industry’s biggest success stories," says Richard Kurtz, President, CEO and Principal. "Our company’s reputation is continually spreading as a leading primary supplier of fully U.S. safety-certified, state-of-the-art luminaires and integral lighting systems, particularly for hospitality and retail design, offices of all kinds, and fine residences. The company’s dynamic growth is what drove the need for new, larger space,” Kurtz says.
“The company already previously purchased its own West Coast warehouse and offices in Los Angeles, and has added a brand-new showroom to it," Kurtz explains. “The company also has a Florida regional warehouse and distribution facility; a network of overseas plants which feed our U.S. facilities; and offices in Hong Kong and Europe, so we in turn can satisfy customers’ varied requirements."
Paulin Tham, Vice President, Marketing and Operations, and a Principal of Jesco Lighting Group, is spearheading designs for new offices at the company’s new building. Jesco further plans to expand its human resources in engineering, marketing, design, product development and sales, as it continues to increase brand awareness in all existing and new markets for Jesco Lighting Group.
