High Tech Lights “reshores” LED manufacturing and R&D jobs

June 12, 2012 — High Tech Lights is participating in a nationwide “Reshoring Initiative” (http://www.reshorenow.org) by bringing job positions from China to the US for light emitting diode (LED) and laser diode (LD) scientists, manufacturing and assembly workers, and R&D staff.

High Tech Lights is offering 80 positions in a Las Vegas manufacturing and assembly facility, hiring over the next six months. The company worked with the Nevada Commission on Economic Development and the Nevada Development Authority to develop a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility within the next three years.

“We’re motivating recruits to enter the skilled manufacturing workforce,” said Tony Jones, president, adding that the Made in America brand is important to the company. High Tech Lights sees manufacturing costs in China rising, and also notes more direct control of product by moving manufacturing to the US.
