Arnsberg/Warsaw, May 2023 - The lighting expert TRILUX is continuing its growth course in Central and Eastern Europe. Near Lublin, about 160 kilometers southeast of the Polish capital Warsaw, the German market leader for professional LED lighting is building a new plant to produce luminaires. Completion is scheduled for spring 2024. In addition to production, intralogistics and assembly, product-related administrative activities, product development and IT services will be located there.
Eastern Europe has long been one of the focal points of the company's international growth strategy. TRILUX has been active in the Central Eastern Europe (CEE) sales region for 33 years and employs around 80 people there. The newly planned production facility of around 23,000 m² is an important addition to the existing plants in Arnsberg (Germany) and Zaragossa (Spain) in order to expand production capacities and thus meet the constantly increasing demand for energy-efficient, intelligent lighting solutions.
"We are convinced that another production and development site in Eastern Europe will help us to consolidate and further expand our already successful sales activities and our position in these growth markets," explains Hubertus Volmert, CEO of TRILUX. All international markets would benefit from the new location. "Thanks to the proximity to our customers, we can react considerably better to their individual wishes, but also to industry trends," said Volmert . "In addition, the new plant offers further independence from external influences and ensures our quality and delivery reliability."
The new location is also an essential pillar of the TRILUX sustainability strategy. Not only are future-oriented lighting solutions produced at the Polish plant, but the ecological footprint is also reduced through shorter transport routes to European customers. The planning of the site was carried out according to the standards of the "BREEAM" certification. All new buildings will be equipped with modern building and energy technology. Construction work will start in the summer of 2023, and the new plant is scheduled to open in the spring of 2024 with up to 250 employees.
