Daily, OSRAM SYLVANIA’s Hillsboro plant manufactures hundreds of thousands of SYLVANIA-branded light bulbs destined for consumer sales through auto supply outlets across the country. While improvements, including streamlined production methods using lean manufacturing best practices, were already underway, the team turned to SYLVANIA’s long history of innovation for further inspiration. Investing in a strategic plant reconfiguration plan and capitalizing on its strong workforce will drive even greater improvements and further raise the New Hampshire plant’s position as a world-class technology company.
“In my nearly twenty years with SYLVANIA, two things have been constant: the company’s dedication to excellence and its strong commitment to our people,” says Hillsboro plant manager Jim Faulhaber. “There is a reason our plant has thrived here for over a half century and generations have viewed us as an employer of choice. We not only offer great benefits, we also offer a career path forward for every team member.”
