Southwire Co., Carrolton, GA, recently opened a new office in Medford, NY. The opening of this office comes several months after Southwire expanded its business with the acquisition of Topaz Lighting Corp. in Dec. 2021.
“This has been a long time coming, and the acquisition of Topaz has been very important,” said Brandon Moss, president of Southwire’s Tools, Components and Assembled Solutions (TCAS) business unit, in the press release. “As we met individuals, we were extremely excited about the talent of this organization. I am really excited that we can get this talent back together and have a facility to do so. We are committed to the employee base here and this location, and we are focused on investing in the local community — as we do in every community we join — and making it better than it was before.”
During the grand opening event, Southwire Medford employees were joined by the company’s executive leadership team, the local sales staff and members of the team at Brazill Brothers & Associates, the sales agency that represents Southwire in the New York metro area.
“One of the things that is important to me is meeting people face to face,” said Michael Griesi, Southwire’s vice president of Strategic Sourcing and Customer Experience, in the press release. “When Southwire acquired Topaz, it was challenging to embrace so many new people into the Southwire family because we were working remotely. Now that we have a facility to visit and spend time with everyone, I’ve seen what a wonderful team we have here.”
