In anticipation of next week’s Prolight + Sound, L-Acoustics announces the opening of three new facilities dedicated to production, logistics and carpentry.
With yearly double digit growth over the last decade, the company is expanding its manufacturing capacity in order to respond to market demand. The new facilities will enable L-Acoustics to increase production significantly by the end of 2015.
A new logistics facility has been operational since early 2015. Located in the Paris region close to the company’s headquarters in Marcoussis, the new warehouse increases the company’s logistics facilities to 8,200 square meters, expanding capacity by 300 percent.
The new warehouse was joined by the March inauguration of a new production facility. Located in Marcoussis, next to the company’s business headquarters, the new assembly site offers 3,000 square meters dedicated to manufacturing, doubling the current production size. The company’s 4,000 square meter headquarters, which previously contained both production and business teams, will now be fully dedicated to business operations and research and development.
L-Acoustics’ carpentry subsidiary, located in the Strasbourg region of France, will also double in size with the opening of a new 5,000 square meter purpose-built carpentry and paint factory, which is currently under construction and will open in the last quarter of 2015.
“With the rapid worldwide adoption of reference products like K2, L-Acoustics has been blessed with phenomenal growth,” states Stéphane Ecalle, director of marketing at L-Acoustics. “The expansion of our logistics and production facilities will allow us to grow in lockstep with the increasing demand.”
