Avigilon USA Factory Visit Report

By John Honovich, Published Apr 01, 2019, 01:23pm EDT

In a building that looks more like corporate offices than a 'factory' and just down the road from suburban housing developments is Avigilon's USA manufacturing plant.

Given the heightened interest in non-China manufacturing, IPVM visited the plant to see what Avigilon does there and its most recent developments including:

  • What they manufacture there
  • How they manufacturer in the USA
  • How it compares to their Canadian manufacturing
  • Why they choose to manufacture in the USA
  • What benefits they see compared to manufacturing in China or Vietnam
  • What disadvantages they have from such manufacturing
  • What products they do not manufacturer themselves
  • How the Motorola acquisition and ownership is impacting them

Just like IPVM's Hanwha Vietnam factory visit, and unlike trade magazine visits, IPVM covered all of our own expenses.
