Global lighting innovator creates “Light as Art” in the North American LED replacement lamp market

Cary, North Carolina – Civilight North America is now in volume production with their broad portfolio of LED lamps for the North American market. These LED lamps were initially developed for the European market and have been market-tested and customer-accepted in this demanding lighting market since 2006. Optimized and improved through market feedback from the global lighting community, Civilight’s products are offered in three series – Architectural, Professional and Commercial. These products provide a long lifetime of up to 40,000 hours and reduce energy consumption by up to 85 percent compared to traditional incandescent lamps.

“We are thrilled to now offer our North American lighting customers, as well as our sales and distribution partners, our latest technology and our strongest performing LED lamps for their lighting designs and projects,” said Jeff Lagaly, CEO of Civilight North America. Specifically, we have a complete offering of six standard lamp families, and within these families, we have three series that allow us to offer our customers multiple solutions that blend cost, performance, CRI and aesthetics.
