Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined more than 100 Noribachi customers, suppliers, business neighbors and employees as well as state, district and city officials at its official grand opening. Noribachi, a U.S.-based custom LED manufacturer for high output commercial and industrial solutions, manufactures all its LED lighting products in Harbor City, Calif.
“If New York is the place where you go to make it, then Los Angeles is the place you go to make things,” says Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Noribachi’s custom engineering and manufacturing approach to LED lighting fits perfectly in-line with the city’s growing green technology sector. The increased demand for its products also provides more job opportunities for our community and proves that L.A. is the center for manufacturing in the U.S.”
“We are proud to have Noribachi in Harbor City,” says Joeann Valle, Harbor City/Harbor Gateway, Chamber of Commerce, executive director. “Noribachi brings in good paying jobs and clean manufacturing into our community. The chamber looks forward to working with Noribachi and helping to grow its business to create more good jobs for our community.”
Noribachi has made the Los Angeles area its home since January 2012, while other companies have taken their manufacturing operations overseas. Since arriving in Los Angeles, the demand for Noribachi manufactured LED products has seen its revenues increase 22 times since 2011.
