I saw a bit of news out of Germany, Siemens who owns Osram is selling the business. They see no future in a commodity consumer product, lightbulbs. The Exeter facility is a specialty house, theatrical lighting, some components for other products. Do I remember a time when a police officer was needed at shift change on Portsmouth Ave?
This facility has 50 or so people on the property during the day. Some are Siemens employees involved in another business arena. That is not meant to marginalize the 50 slots. It is simply indicative of changes in manufacturing processes. When you watch a television show all about how things are made are you not struck by how few people are required?
“I pour the goop in this end and the doll comes out the other”.
Could one get out to Holland Way from the property? I think the site could use an additional access road.
I hope the Exeter Chamber and EDC are on top of this possible change of ownership.
