LEDtronics Did You Know Episode 11: We have a USA based manufacturing facility.

By LEDtronics, Inc.

LEDtronics has been manufacturing LED lighting in the United States for over 30 years. Often LED manufacturers claim to be based in the USA, but in reality they may only have a sales or distribution facility. Our USA based facility follows the strict guidelines of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Section 1605, on designated USA Made products. This applies to many of our popular products such as the T8 tube light, street lighting, and post-top lamps.

Being based in the United States allows us to provide far more effective service and technical support than our overseas competitors. When purchasing lighting products from overseas suppliers one generally must settle for many unknowns. By utilizing LEDtronics for your lighting needs you have the advantage of onsite engineering; especially useful for applications requiring retro-fitting.

In addition you have the peace of mind of on-site assistance and a USA based customer service. Don't subject your project to the risks of overseas suppliers. LEDtronics has been operating in the US since 1983, and strives to not only fulfill our customer's current needs...but anticipate their future needs as well.

We are committed both to providing the highest quality products at competitive prices, as well as supporting US workers and the economy. To find out how LEDtronics can fulfill your needs, contact us today. Then join us on any of these social networks.

Solutions: Retail Profits Increase with LEDtronics LED Solution

By LEDtronics, Inc.

Proper lighting can make or break a retail business. Appealing to the customer is an important consideration when lighting is being developed for a retail business. LED lighting offers high-quality, directional lighting at a variety of available color temperatures. But allure is one of many aspects that LED lighting truly strives in a retail environment.

Constantly changing lamps in a retail store creates a huge hassle for the business owner, not to mention a considerable expense from frequently purchasing replacements. By utilizing LED lighting in their application, retail businesses can reduce maintenance costs and inconveniences. LEDtronics LED lamps have an extremely long life cycle with over 50,000 hours of consistent use, far exceeding both fluorescent and incandescent lamps.

For any retail store, cost savings are important. By utilizing LED technology, retail stores are able to achieve up to 80% energy savings over fluorescent and incandescent. LED technology also reduces heat output considerably, increasing the efficiency of the store air conditioning. These are benefits both to the wallet and the environment.

Retail lighting also has several special considerations, and an LED solution solves each of them. Insects are attracted to UV and IR light, obviously far from ideal for a food or clothing store. LED lighting has negligible UV and IR output, meaning insects are not attracted to their light. UV light is also the cause of color fading present at many retail stores, but with LEDs it is no longer an issue.

LEDtronics recognizes the complexities of lighting a retail establishment, and has developed a technology that creates one, simple solution: LED.

Faces of LEDtronics: Meena Zehra

By LEDtronics, Inc.

What inspired you to work for LEDtronics and how long ago was it?

About 22 years ago I was approached by Almas Lodhie to see if I was interested in working for LEDtronics. Of course I said yes-went in for an interview with Pervaiz Lodhie and was hired as a part time employee. Initially I performed basic tasks like cutting out leads and pasting them on paper, sending them to reps, and doing data entry. Eventually I became a full time employee, and received all of the training necessary to do purchasing from Mr. Lodhie. Pervaiz has been a total inspiration for me and I have great respect for him.

What do you feel makes LEDtronics the great company that it is? What separates it from competitors?

I consider myself very lucky to be working for LEDtronics. The employees here are like one big, happy (and hardworking) family. LEDtronics is separated from competition by their excellent service and their vast variety of quality products at reasonable prices. 22+ years have gone by in a flash!

What are your roles at LEDtronics? Describe an average day at work for you.

I am in the materials department where I perform a buyer’s duties, place purchase orders with the vendors, negotiate on the pricing, etc.

What do you hope to accomplish at LEDtronics in the future?

I would like to implement a back up supplier system for must-have products that are used in large quantities.

Tell me about your values in regards to work. What about home?

At work I value honesty, loyalty and dedication.
At home I value love, mutual trust, and understanding.

Tell me about your family.

I am originally from Pakistan where I come from a large family.—six sisters and one brother. My mother lives in Islamabad which is the capital city of Pakistan. I moved to Los Angeles after getting married. Two of my sisters are living in the states—one in Princeton, NJ and the other one in Washington DC where they work for the World Bank.

How do you enjoy spending your free time?

Reading, going shopping and watching TV.
