Wilmington, Mass. – LEDVANCE, the maker of SYLVANIA general lighting in the United States and Canada, is showing at LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®) how its “Passion for Lighting” translates into support for U.S. manufacturing and LED innovation.  The lighting leader is demonstrating the SYLVANIA U.S.-Assembled Portfolio which includes A-line, Globe, BR and PAR LED lamps.  This portfolio is an industry-exclusive because LEDVANCE is the only general lighting company to have a major LED lamp portfolio made in the U.S.A with U.S. and global parts.  The company achieved this milestone by upgrading its St. Marys, Pennsylvania and Versailles, Kentucky factories, creating more advanced U.S. factories and a more advanced U.S. workforce.  LFI, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, takes place May 8 – 10, 2018 in Chicago. 

“Our investment in U.S. manufacturing means more opportunities for more dollars for distributors and contractors,” said Matt McCarron, VP of Industrial Commercial Channel, LEDVANCE.  ““We are continuing to push the envelope of innovation by combining cutting-edge LED lighting technology with the manufacturing and R&D expertise of our U.S. factory workers and engineers.  This unique SYLVANIA U.S.-Assembled LED portfolio offers distributors and contractors a unique selling point with current and new customers that appreciate quality lighting products and supporting U.S. manufacturing.”

The stretching of the supply chain globally can sometimes lead to long lead times for product fulfillment for distributors and contractors.  Rather than wait for lamps from overseas, LEDVANCE can respond quicker with these products and be more agile.  Inventory issues can be minimized, and distributors can have less money tied up in inventory.  Since the products are manufactured in America with U.S. and global parts, they qualify for BAA (COTS item) and TAA compliant projects, opening the door to more opportunities.  Lastly, the locally-produced LED lamps are becoming more in line price wise with competitive offerings made and shipped from overseas due in part to recent tax cuts, lower transportation costs and shorter lead times.
