Harvard Engineering to illuminate the US lighting market
Harvard Engineering, world leader in the design, development and manufacture of LED drivers and control products for the lighting industry, has announced the launch of a North American business operation. The launch marks a new era for the company, as it extends its brand presence into the US lighting market.
Harvard takes this bold step following the launch of successful operations in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa and in recognition of the significant opportunities for its market leading products in North America.
John McDonnell, CEO and managing director of Harvard, commented, “We are investing heavily in this new business to create a local presence that can properly support existing and new customers so that they in turn can make the most of the tremendous energy saving opportunities that are available to them by introducing new lighting technologies within our current and planned product offering.”
Located in Southern California, Harvard Engineering Americas Corporation has two primary goals; to develop the company’s market leading innovative LED drivers under the globally recognised CoolLED brand name, and to target broad-scale adoption of LeafNut, Harvard’s revolutionary and industry leading wireless control system for street lighting that has already been deployed by approaching 100 municipal authorities worldwide, including London and Paris.
Heading up the North American operation is Antony Corrie, the former vice president of sales at Future Electronics Corp. Antony brings 18 years global electronics sales & lighting experience to the Harvard team.
John continued, “Antony holds the same values of customer care, product excellence and entrepreneurial drive that have been at the core of Harvard’s success in Europe to date. His skills and experience in professional sales leadership will help us build a stronger international company, focused on growing our customer base.”
