Sustainable resource use. Case study.

Litecontrol is a Massachusetts based company that provides commercial and educational lighting products.

In over 75 years the Company evolved from the early innovations in wall/slot lighting, to today's advanced LED fixtures.
As the biggest environmental impact of lighting is the energy used during operation, Litecontrol designs their fixtures with the latest optical and thermal techniques to achieve 85-95% efficiency ratings that allow saving energy.
LiteCycle wiring, developed exclusively for Litecontrol, eliminates the PVC-based wiring material used by other manufacturers. 

A broad view of what constitutes a quality product and a quality lighting manufacturer brought Litecontrol to earn the lighting industry's first Cradle to Cradle Silver Certification for all products manufactured in Plympton, MA factories in 2008.

Cradle to Cradle is the leading "green" certification program using a multi-criteria approach to address product design and manufacture from a broad-based sustainable perspective.
