Global Special Effects has recently confirmed plans to open an additional visual special effects manufacturing facility and start producing GSE products out of a major city in southern China. Pictured in the photo are Global Special Effects president and founder, Francisco Guerra, and the governor of the city. Guerra is currently serving as the Ambassador of Theater Technology to China, and served as the Civil Aviation Ambassador from 2004 through 2006 (see related articles).
The recent GSE deal with China will greatly reduce costs of exporting heavy special effects equipment overseas, though the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, and possibly other countries closer to the U.S. than China will continue to receive most of their products from our stateside manufacturing facility located in Lexington, Alabama.
