Solais Lighting positioned for significant growth
Date Announced: 18 Feb 2011
Solais Lighting, Inc., manufacturer of actively cooled, specification-grade LED lamps, has completed its first phase of market introduction and is now positioned for significant growth. “We have an impressive, experienced team of lighting professionals now in place,” says James Leahy, president of Solais. “They have created a top-performing LED lamp, developed impressive marketing support, and crafted a strong sales team consisting of independent sales agents throughout the United States and Canada.”
The Solais product offering, consisting of LED lamps sized and shaped to replace PAR30 and PAR38 lamps, features its exclusive Luxiance® technology. Steve Johnson, Solais chief technology officer and former Lighting Program director at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, describes the Luxiance technology as “the combination of active cooling and advanced power supply design that permits Solais to offer LED lamps of up to 1200 lumens, with full dimming capability. Because there are no heat sinks, their light weight makes them particularly applicable for track and recessed applications.”
“Reaction to our products has been enthusiastic wherever they are shown,” states Glenn Bordfeld, vice president of sales. Rich Stam, national director of sales, reports that his agent sales team indicates strong growth as several major end users are currently installing or testing the new Solais technology in their locations. Installations include office building lobbies, retail stores, and restaurants and cafes.
The Solais Marketing Team, headed by George Stroumboulis, has prepared informative brochures, product sheets, and an interactive website that features a calculator for energy savings. The company has prepared two white papers with contributions from industry experts. “LED Lighting – Separating Fact From Fiction” and “LED Active Cooling – The Need for Advanced Thermal Management” can be downloaded from the company’s website, www.solais.com.
“We believe that Solais is solidly positioned to capture a significant share of the growing LED replacement lamp market,” says president Leahy. “We appreciate and look forward to the opportunities our customers have shared with us.”
