The bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity. And the opportunities for Luxbright being created by the world’s “new normal” are more than ever before. We worked in our facility in China in January and were some of the last people to leave the country before the quarantines. Production started again in early March and we were some of the first ones to return to China. Now the country is preventing foreigners from entering. These are challenging times for us all, and yet in these challenges comes many opportunities.
Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable, implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push—in just the right place—it can be tipped.”
Last out of China
Luxbright’s team was in China in both December and January to complete some critical work for ongoing improvements. Our last day of work and departure from China was 23 Jan, the same day that the Wuhan and other cities in the Hubei province were put on lock-down to contain the outbreak of COVID-19.
We had the normal shutdown of production due to Chinese New Year that would last until mid-February. The virus caused a minor delay in restarting production by another 2-3 weeks. We took this time as an opportunity to work on production preparation, review component production, and see how to move some IP-sensitive production to Sweden. It was time well spent, and we are now back in action.
