In direct response to the rising demand for its high-performance LED lighting products, TecNiq Inc. has moved into a new 120,000 square foot facility. The company's address is 9100 E Michigan Ave. in Galesburg, Michigan. The company phone number and web domain remain unchanged.
The move keeps pace with TecNiq's exponential growth across several major market segments, including marine, emergency fire and rescue, RV, speciality vehicle, commercial fleet and trailer. Located between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, Michigan, the new space includes a large addition to the company's state-of-the-art prototyping, product development and validation labs. It will create an additional 120 jobs within the local area.
"Our new facility will enhance our operational efficiencies and provide the foundation to match our customers' growing needs," TecNiq Senior Director of Market Development Tom Bailey says. “We'll continue to deliver the same technologically advanced products and superior service and value the TecNiq brand has become synonymous with."
Founded in 2004, TecNiq designs, validates and manufactures the vast majority of its high-quality, energy-efficient lighting in the USA.
