One of Seesmart’s chief objectives is to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. The vast majority of LEDs and LED lamp components are still manufactured in Southeast Asia. At this point, it is very difficult for US companies in this market to compete with countries such as China. Seesmart has already established one manufacturing facility in Southern California and we are continuously investigating partnerships that would enable us to forge ahead with the expansion of US production. This is a feat we can’t achieve completely independently, although we would like to. We hope that Washington really will make it easier for green tech companies to move production and jobs back to the U.S. and grow without foreign investment. See what our CEO Ken Ames had to say about this on the CBS Evening News.
