EYE Lighting International, manufacturer of LED lighting products, celebrated its history and growth in the lighting industry during a 25th anniversary event on November 18, 2016 at its headquarters and manufacturing operations in Mentor, OH.
Tom Salpietra, President and COO commented during the ceremony, “From our earliest days of producing HID lamps to developing technology for solid-state LED luminaries and lighting controls, our success has stemmed from our core values of being customer centric, focusing on innovation and sustainability. EYE Lighting’s 25th anniversary is testimony to the dedication of our employees who produce some of the industry’s finest lighting products, and the support we get from our friends and families in Ohio. The next 25 years will be even more exciting, as we introduce new technology to the fast-moving global lighting market.”
EYE Lighting International has been celebrating 25 years of growth and engineering innovation in the lighting industry during 2016. Official recognition came on November 18 with several elected and local officials present at the Mentor, OH facility.
The company has been most successful in providing energy efficient solutions that reduce the strain on the environment and the costs associated with lighting. Salpietra said that energy savings has been a significant customer deliverable the last several years. “So our factory is split into high-tech and old-tech across one talented workforce. Every person on the floor changes to another job at least once per day, giving us maximum flexibility to adjust to changing market conditions,” he said.
Salpietra said the EYE factory is one of the few remaining facilities in North America to make traditional lighting for utilities, municipalities and specialty applications. “We have maintained our traditional business of HID through a special technology and collaboration with key customer segments, while making the transition to solid state lighting,” he said.
“Our vision is to be a lighting solutions provider for customers in the commercial, industrial and infrastructure markets, along with providing specialty lighting for Horticulture, Aquaculture, and Zoology applications.” he said. “From our administrators and sales team to the engineers and individuals that develop and manufacture our products, we have a truly wonderful team at EYE Lighting. We look forward to embracing the next 25 years as a world-class organization with the reach and resources to achieve lighting and sustainability goals that will help create a more secure society.”
