DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - Énergie Holdings, Inc. formerly Alas Aviation Corp., (OTCQB: ALAS) ("Energie" or the "Company") announces its wholly owned subsidiary, Énergie LLC has entered into a new partnership with RZB Gmbh, one of the most influential enterprises in the European lighting industry, based in Bamberg, Germany to develop and market its ground breaking LED technology in North America.
Énergie LLC will be introducing three families of products from its newest partner, RZB, from Bamberg, Germany, in the spring of 2014. RING OF FIRE is a modern masterpiece of craftsmanship combining a hand-blown satin glass and aluminum enclosure with advanced LED technology. The award-winning pendant fixture is a visually stunning example of contemporary form and light. The DOUALA and DOUALA WHITE families both include hand blown opal glass diffusers and sophisticated LED technology in a classic round architectural shape. With pendant, surface-mount, semi-recessed and recessed versions, the award-winning DOUALA families represent a range of options suitable for offices, restaurants, hotels and public buildings. All three product families use LED lighting that creates light comparable to incandescent bulbs using up to 85% less energy and lasting up to 50 times longer.
The International Sales Director for RZB, Pascal Rinckenberger, said, "We feel that having Énergie as our North American partner with their distribution network and Michigan assembly facility, will speed our introduction into the market."
Harold Hansen, the Founder of Énergie LLC and CEO of Énergie Holdings, Inc. states: "This opportunity is a great example of the value Énergie LLC and Énergie Holdings brings to our global partners. RZB gets their innovative LED products into the North American architectural lighting market place quickly and cost-effectively by leveraging the tested Énergie LLC business platform. Both companies expect to experience a long, productive and expanding business relationship."
