GE Current Announces New Cleveland Innovation Hub

CLEVELANDGE Current, a Daintree company, the industry’s leading advanced lighting and controls manufacturer, today announced an agreement to move its Cleveland offices to the City of Beachwood, Ohio.

Current’s new offices will be in an easily accessible location just outside of Cleveland. As the company has permanently transitioned to a hybrid-work model, the space is being primarily designed as a collaboration space and innovation location.

“Beachwood is the perfect location for this next chapter at Current, with a continued focus on serving our customers,” said CEO Manish Bhandari. “The move from historic Nela Park is not one we take lightly, but the time is right to transition our space to accommodate our new work practices.” “Our new office will be designed to enable creativity and teaming, ensuring natural light, access to fresh air and healthy movement. We will have the benefit of outdoor space, which improves employee concentration and focus,” said Current’s Chief People Officer Courtney Abraham. “Our goal is to create a collaborative center that balances the need for quiet workspace, community building and moments of inspiration.”

Current chose Beachwood in part because of its central location, aiming to reduce commutes for its workforce and the associated impact on the environment. Employees will also be able to take advantage of the Beachwood area’s easy access to restaurants, shops, health and wellness centers and other lifestyle services. Additionally, remaining in Greater Cleveland is critical, as the company believes the talent and resources in the area allow Current to continue to grow and innovate.

“We are excited for Current to join the many other corporations positioned well in Beachwood. It is a point of pride for us to lay claim to having an international leader in lighting and controls within our borders. Current carries the legacy of one of the world’s most recognized business names and has a reputation as a leader in the lighting and controls industry. We welcome all of its employees and hope they take advantage of the ample amenities our community has to offer.” said Mayor Justin Berns of the City of Beachwood.

This announcement is the latest in a series of significant investments Current is making to build a more agile business to better serve customers and partners. The company has recently acquired Hubbell’s C&I Lighting business, opened two new distribution centers, and a new multimillion-dollar training facility at its intelligent factory in Hendersonville, North Carolina. Current’s Beachwood offices will be located at 25825 Science Park Drive. The company expects the move to be completed in the spring of 2022.
