TORRANCE, CA - January 29, 1999 - LEDtronics® has long been recognized as a leader
in the development, design and manufacturer of light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
Now it has a facility worthy of its accomplishments.
Located at 23105 Kashiwa Court in Torrance, CA, their new location is just
a few blocks from their previous facility, but it couldn’t be more
different. At 63,000 square feet, there is more than three times the manufacturing
space, featuring a host of improvements. This additional space is necessary
to keep up with the growing demand for LED lighting.
"In the past, the use of LEDs was fairly limited," stated Pervaiz
Lodhie, President of LEDtronics. "Advances made in LED technology in
the past few years have dramatically broadened the applications for these
rugged little light sources. There are literally millions of uses for LEDs
and LEDtronics expanded to keep up with this need."
More and more, LEDs are replacing standard incandescent lighting. LEDs use
a fraction of the power required by conventional filament bulbs, and their
solid-state design allows them to withstand shock, vibration, frequent switching
and environmental extremes without compromising their famously long life — typically
100,000 hours or more.
LEDtronics® has dedicated itself to supplying the industry with LED lamps
that will meet the demanding needs of firms who want to lower power usage,
increase lamp life, reduce maintenance costs and have the services of an
innovative lamp designer available to them.
LEDtronics® has evidenced their ability to meet those needs by becoming the
preferred LED lamp supplier to such firms as Eastman Kodak, Square D Company,
Eaton Corporation and IBM.
LEDtronics® LEDs support a wide variety of applications from automotive,
avionics, industrial controls, pilot lights, security sensors and décor/interior
design lighting just to name a few. LEDtronics® has the world’s largest
selection of based LED replacements for incandescent applications as well
as an astounding array of LEDs for PCBs, panels and discrete applications.
If they don’t have the LED a customer wants, they will design and
manufacture them to the customer’s specifications. They utilize the
newest in technology, including the new Indium Gallium and Gallium Nitride
LEDtronics® was founded in 1983 by Pervaiz Lodhie as a small two-person manufacturing
organization. The company is certified as a Minority Owned Small Business
and has grown into one of the world’s leading suppliers of innovative
LED lamps, clusters and arrays with sales approaching $20 million. The company
now employs 130 people and has sales representatives and distributors worldwide.
