SSL Manufacturing in America

You are here

Solid-state lighting (SSL) is rapidly transforming the lighting industry, and the U.S. has been at the epicenter of SSL innova­tion. U.S.-based researchers and product developers have been instrumental in toppling cost and performance barriers, and in positioning SSL for rapid market growth.

U.S. lighting manufacturers are well positioned to benefit from the SSL revolution, strengthening our country’s position as a leader in the technology. As manufacturing plants transition from conventional to LED lighting products, many companies are expanding their workforce and/or retraining employees to deal with the new skills and expertise SSL requires. U.S. manufacturers have strong incentives to localize manufacturing and engineering to deliver high-value lighting solutions to commercial and industrial customers while minimizing turnaround times, inventories, and shipping costs.

From time to time, the Postings focused on SSL companies that manufacture in the U.S. This was not intended to endorse or promote any of the companies, but rather to motivate and inspire other U.S. companies to follow suit. The philosophy and activities in these profiles are consistent with the recommendations set forth in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) white paper “Prospects for U.S.-Based Manufacturing in the SSL Industry.
