Oct. 30, 2008
Date Announced: 30 Oct 2008 Renaissance Lighting has established strategic marketing alliances with four of Canada's leading lighting specialists in a bid to expand its share of the global LED architectural and general illumination business. Herndon, VA (PRWEB) October 29, 2008 -- Renaissance Lighting, a pioneering innovator of solid-state LED architectural lighting, has established strategic marketing alliances with four of Canada's leading lighting specialists in a bid to expand its share of the global LED architectural and general illumination business. The alliances, with manufacturer representatives CD/M2 Lightworks in Vancouver, BC; Flux Lighting Inc of Ottawa, ON.; Luxtec in Montreal and Quebec, QC, and SGi Lighting Inc, an Ontario-based lighting distributor, provide Renaissance Lighting with a coast-to-coast marketing reach into Canada's largest and most populated regions. "From an architectural lighting perspective, Canada represents a marketing opportunity similar to what we have here in the United States," said Barry Weinbaum, Renaissance Lighting CEO. "Even in this challenging economic climate, commercial development in Canada's principal metropolitan centers remains steady, leading architects, specifiers, lighting designers and interior space planners to evaluate and deploy advanced lighting solutions. Our solid-state LED downlights are well suited to help fill a need throughout Canada for cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternatives to incandescent, fluorescent and compact fluorescent lighting." "While we have only just begun showing the Renaissance Lighting product line, the reception from our clientele has been very positive," said Montreal-based Luxtec Vice President Philippe Racine. "The Renaissance product speaks for itself, which is why we have had a very nice reception from both the engineering and architectural communities." Renaissance Lighting's patented solid-state LED technology is unique in that it allows for the mixing and blending of multiple LED lights into a single light source with no visible LEDs and no prism effect. Renaissance Lighting manufacturers truly intelligent light fixtures, with a dynamic monitoring system ensuring energy efficient, consistent light output and color throughout its virtually maintenance free, 50,000-to 70,000-hour lifecycle. The company's signature downlights are the highest quality LED recessed products available today. "Our focus leans more toward general task and architectural lighting applications and this is where Renaissance Lighting offers something unique appealing to the market," said CD/M2 Lightworks Principal Darren Luce. LED technology is already widely accepted throughout his area of operation, yet Luce said his biggest challenge is to bolster commercialization of the technology. "Convincing the customer of the value equation is a challenge and Renaissance Lighting delivers in a format the public can understand."
