BEGA Campus 2
Why are we expanding?
Even through a global pandemic BEGA has experienced tremendous growth the last several years. As a result, space has emerged as our number one operational constraint. With our commitment to continuous growth and providing the highest quality products, it is with tremendous excitement that we announce the establishment of BEGA Campus 2, located in Broomfield, CO.
BC2 offers more than 150,000 square feet of flexible space, offering relief to our spatial limitations in Carpinteria (BC1) and providing more space for inventory. Additionally, shifting large scale luminaire production to BC2 will allow us to improve processes and speed up production so we can deliver on our promise of world class service.
Expanding our operational footprint in the North American market by doubling available space to facilitate continuous improvement and growth
Reducing lead times by up to 50% of our current average by optimizing both large- and small-scale manufacturing processes in both BC1 and BC2.
Creating 100 new jobs to strengthen the BEGA community from manufacturing to our customer facing teams. We are adding new skills and growing to better serve you.
Our new home
Aside from the additional space BC2 provides, its location was also carefully considered. Our new home is part of a master planned community known as Baseline. Baseline is a new district at the intersection of urban life and outdoor adventure that completes the Denver/Boulder triangle. BEGA will occupy the entirety of Baseline’s second industrial building, allowing the company to flex and accommodate future growth on-site. McWhinney, Colorado-based developer, was pleased to break ground in May on an additional 306,000 square feet of industrial offerings.
A home for business and community alike, Baseline is a community created for people who are social by nature, who value experiences over things, and who regularly gaze west towards the Rockies to remind themselves why they live in Colorado. A short distance from the University of Colorado Boulder and University of Denver, Baseline will be the region’s new go-to destination – part dining district, part beer garden, part business hub.
Our plan is to organize around scale-based centers of excellence. BEGA’s North American headquarters will continue to be located at BC1 in Carpinteria, CA, where we will optimize processes for small scale luminaire and electronics manufacturing. Our new Colorado campus will support large scale luminaire manufacturing.
Setting the stage for another 75 years of shared success, BEGA Campus 2 is without a doubt the most exciting investment we have made in decades.
