Date Announced: 30 Sep 2009LED light bulbs provide more efficient, longer-lasting replacements for incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs that will save consumers moneyHAUPPAUGE, NY -- Maxxima, a leading manufacturer and supplier of LED (light emitting diodes) lighting solutions, today introduced a new line of long-lasting, environmentally friendly LED light bulbs for home and commercial use. The LED replacement bulbs for BR30 and BR40 recessed lighting applications offer direct replacements for incandescent 50, 60, 75, and 100 watt bulbs. The bulbs will last up to 40,000 hours, consume seven to 10 times less energy, and save consumers and companies hundreds of dollars in energy costs compared with incandescent bulbs.Maxxima has been in business for 30 years, and for the past 10 years has been engineering industry-leading lighting products for the commercial vehicle industry, and consumer and industrial markets, from night lights to off-road and emergency lighting. The company’s new replacement LED bulbs for homes and offices with recessed lighting have undergone stringent consumer and environmental safety standards achieving both ETL Listed and Central European (CE) marks.“Maxxima is one of the first companies to announce LED bulbs with ETL approval, as well as one of the first companies to offer bulbs that meet the needs of standard (50, 60, 75, and 100) watt applications in both warm and cool white light outputs,” stated Charles Sassoon, president of Maxxima. “While the market has trended toward compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, they are not as efficient as our ‘green’ LED technology. And CFL bulbs contain mercury, which is harmful for the environment, especially if placed in landfills. Our bulbs contain no hazardous materials, and will last longer than CFL bulbs. In addition, we stand behind our product offering a three-year warranty on every bulb. If any of our bulbs stop working, we’ll replace them.”The major benefits of Maxxima’s LED bulbs are the following:Consume 10 times less energy than incandescent bulbsSave consumers/businesses hundreds of dollars over the course of the bulb’s lifeReduce home cooling costs because LEDs emit very little heatLEDs last longer, which reduces overall global wasteLEDs contain no mercuryETL approved, CE approvedThree-year warranty“Consumers have become increasingly savvier when it comes to buying more efficient and greener products, as we have seen tremendous interest across all our LED product lines,” added Sassoon. “While standards and CFL bulbs cost less initially, they will have a greater impact in the long run on consumers’ wallets in terms of replacements and energy costs, as well as on the environment in terms of waste.”Maxxima’s LED bulbs are available direct through the company’s online store at or through
