Trans-Lux Corporation announces formation of Trans-Lux Energy
Trans-Lux Corporation has announced the formation of a new subsidiary company called Trans-Lux Energy. Trans-Lux says the new company will feature a comprehensive offering of the latest LED lighting technologies that provide facilities and public infrastructure with “green” lighting solutions that emit less heat, save energy and enable creative designs. The products will have immediate availability.
Eric Mackey has been appointed to the position of Vice President of Trans-Lux Corporation and General Manager of the newly formed Trans-Lux Energy. Mackey will focus on developing distribution channels and key accounts for Trans-Lux Energy.
“The addition of Trans-Lux Energy to the Trans-Lux Corporation family of companies further supports the launch of our new TL Vision business model,” said J.M. Allain, president and CEO, Trans-Lux Corporation. “Trans-Lux Energy adds two important facets to our core competencies: first, by allowing us to pursue new business opportunities in the LED lighting category with energy-saving lighting solutions; and second, by supplementing our established digital display and signage businesses with a highly flexible, cost-efficient and creative means for facilities to enhance their environments with LED lighting.”
The newly formed Trans-Lux Energy Corporation headquartered in Norwalk, CT will be introducing a new line of “green” LED lighting solutions. The company says the initial product offering will include LED replacement bulbs that fit into existing fixtures, smaller and highly efficient LED bulbs for new construction, and innovative LED street lighting solutions.
Trans-Lux Energy’s LED lighting solutions complement Trans-Lux Corporation’s new LED Large Screen Systems and Digital Signage Displays, as well as the Company’s established line of Trans-Lux DataWalls and Fair-Play branded Scoreboard Systems. With a base of thousands of installations around the globe, Trans-Lux says it will cultivate new business development opportunities incorporating these lighting and display system technologies targeting the financial, sports and entertainment, gaming and leasing markets, as well as the private and public facilities market.
