SWARCO's US-Made FUTURLUX LED Streetlights Gain ETL Safety Approval From Intertek

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2012) - With the Intertek ETL safety approval mark, SWARCO Traffic Americas has reached a key milestone in an effort to build a US based operation and deliver a superior roadway lighting solution to a market that is moving toward integrated LED solutions that are demonstrably better than conventional solutions, not just more efficient.

"We've gone from zero to one-hundred in six months opening our US headquarters, building a team, getting our FUTURLUX manufacturing in California off the ground and getting FUTURLUX approved for ETL for use throughout the country," said Frank Harder, CEO of SWARCO Traffic Americas, Inc.

More than just a LED street light, FUTURLUX was designed from the beginning to incorporate advanced controls and management capabilities allowing it to link to SWARCO's intelligent traffic management system or other control and guidance systems.

"Municipalities and building owners are very enthusiastic about our ETL approved FUTURLUX for two key reasons," said Jim Helmer, Director of Strategy at SWARCO. "First, with embedded communications technology and controls, the FUTURLUX solution delivers enhanced safety, monitor & control capabilities and environmental benefits. Second, FUTURLUX delivers 100 lumens per watt at the system level, resulting in energy reductions up to 80%."
