That’s right, there is a rapidly expanding market for cost-effective, energy-efficient, commercial lighting products, and companies like Worcester’s Access Fixtures are positioning themselves accordingly. In fact, as evidence of what can only be described as explosive growth, Access Fixtures recently announced they have already experienced more than a two-fold increase in their year-over-year sales of LED-based lighting.
While the vast majority of Access Fixtures LED product sales are new luminaires, CEO Steven Rothschild says the company has also seen a noticeable increase in sales of LED retrofit kits for commercial wall packs and bollards, indicating an increase in the number of property managers who are updating their existing luminaires from other sources to LED. “As prices fall and efficacy increases, property managers realize the value achieved by a lower energy cost and reduced or eliminated maintenance,” said Rothschild. He continued, “The high volume we’ve been experiencing also allows us to reduce our overall cost of materials, which is one of the reasons we can sell an LED-equipped bollard for $239.99 and LED wallpacks from $99.00.”
Access Fixtures’ extensive lineup of interior and exterior lighting fixtures includes products for sports, commercial, industrial, residential and hospitality applications. Luminaire types include wall packs, area lights, bollards, garage lighters, vandal resistant, exit and emergency, high bay, low bay, linear fluorescent, track lighting and grow light fixtures.
With companies like Access Fixtures leading the way, Massachusetts is rapidly becoming known for something other than Cape Cod, cranberries, and biotech. Our lighting industry is also starting to cast a long shadow.
