"In response to significant supply chain challenges, OSRAM SYLVANIA is leveraging our strong workforce and innovative technology to optimize our operations right here in Hillsboro, and we're pleased that Governor Sununu will be joining us for our job fair to recruit new team members," says Mark Savoy, U.S. and Canada CEO for OSRAM SYLVANIA's North American business.

Investing in a strategic plant reconfiguration plan and capitalizing on its strong workforce will drive even greater improvements and further raise the New Hampshire plant's position as a world-class technology company.
