Offshore vehicle lighting manufacturer Optronics International announced its expansion and relocation to a large, new facility in Goshen, Ind. According to a press release, the geographic move from nearby Elkhart puts Optronics in close physical proximity to many of the RV and trailer manufacturers it serves, while substantially boosting its capabilities and distribution capacity in North America’s eastern region.

“The new Goshen facility significantly expands our distribution reach, speed and efficiency,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Tulsa, Okla.-based Optronics International. “Our already short lead times will become even shorter, reducing customers’ exposure to out-of-stock situations and enhancing service to the eastern U.S.”

The company also operates a manufacturing facility in Muskogee, Okla., and satellite distribution facilities in Elkhart and Toronto, Canada. Optronics’ diverse locations help it serve an equally diverse customer base, including heavy-duty vehicles of all types; light-, medium- and heavy-duty trailers; recreational vehicles; transit vehicles and a variety of agricultural and marine vehicles.

“We have North America covered and then some,” Johnson said. “With Goshen coming online, we are particularly well positioned to continue to handle the double-digit growth we’ve been enjoying, and our capacity to take customer spikes in manufacturing and retail sales in stride has never been better.”

Optronics products are available nationwide through its network of more than 12,000 distribution locations. Users can access individual Optronics distributor websites by simply clicking on their logo icons.
