PowerSecure Lighting, a leading provider of LED lighting technologies through its well-known industry brands – Solais, EfficientLights and EnergyLite – is excited to announce the relocation of its corporate headquarters from Stamford, Conn., to new facilities in Frisco, Texas. The 2018 relocation of the team, operations and warehouse facilities will enable the company to enjoy expansive space while delivering a range of powerful, new customer-centric capabilities and operational efficiencies that will benefit clients and channel members alike.
As the anchor tenant within the 216-acre “Frisco Park 25,” currently under construction in Frisco, PowerSecure Lighting’s new 76,000-square-foot headquarters will bring the company’s previous operation of several warehouses under one roof. In addition to housing the operational side of things, the new space will be accommodating an innovative product showroom with dedicated space for training and product education.
“This will be one of the first properties to be developed within Frisco Park 25,” Senior Vice President of Stream Realty Partners, Bob Hagewood said. “We’re excited to deliver a high-quality building for PowerSecure Lighting, with excellent access and best-in-market features.”
Not only will the site’s proximity to the Dallas metro area provide convenient channels to one of the nation’s largest professional lighting design hubs, but its national central location will reduce shipping costs and lead times for both clients and channel members. This enables the PowerSecure Lighting brands to offer greater operational efficiencies and more streamlined customer support. With its relocation to a larger and more modern space, the company has planned expansion into new product lines and market segments. This growth is also expected to create more than 40 new jobs in the Frisco area over the next three years.
“We’re pleased to welcome an innovative technology and manufacturing company like PowerSecure Lighting as a new corporate citizen of Frisco,” said James L. Gandy, President of the Frisco Economic Development Corporation, James L. Gandy said. “Frisco Park 25 is a great fit for the company’s plan to combine its lighting division headquarters with distribution space for growing its business.”
“Our relocation to Texas in 2018 represents the next chapter in our company’s growth and evolution, and we’re excited about the comprehensive benefits the move will deliver to our partners, clients and employees,” Sam Newberry, president of PowerSecure Lighting, said. “Our strategic decision to relocate our company headquarters represents the culmination of a team process and will be undertaken in the most seamless way possible, so as to ensure ‘business as usual’ and no disruption in service to our valued customers and suppliers.”
