Varroc Lighting Systems is expanding its footprint with the opening of an office in Tokyo. The customer and business development centre increases the company's presence in Japan and also strengthens Varroc Lighting's local engineering support of Japanese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers.

"Varroc Lighting's ambitious global expansion involves growing our business with Japanese OEMs globally," said Varroc Lighting Systems President and CEO, Stephane Vedie. "With our Japan office, we can now offer proximity to Japanese OEMs for project management and engineering, while leveraging our global low-cost manufacturing footprint for lighting and electronics."

The new location has office and meeting space for up to 14 engineers and expands the company's global footprint to 12 countries on five continents. In addition to Japan, Varroc Lighting recently announced plans to open new plants and development centers in other high-potential vehicle growth and manufacturing markets, such as Brazil and Morocco.
