Evolucia Now Offering Lighting for Stadiums


Report, Sarasota Herald Tribune


SARASOTA

Lighting systems maker Evolucia Inc. announced Thursday that it is expanding its product line with LED equipment capable of illuminating stadiums and parks.

"SportsLegend" is a new high-power light emitting diode-based system specially designed for indoor and outdoor stadiums, arenas, athletic fields, parks and high-mast lighting towers.

Evolucia systems have also been installed at the U.S. Marine Corps Camp Lejeune training facility, Andrews Air Force Base and DePaul University in Chicago.

From a corporate perspective, Evolucia has struck deals with the Mexican affiliate of German-based lighting giant OSRAM to make and co-market outdoor lights there. It also reached an agreement this year with Colombian firm Solarmax International SA to market its lights throughout the South American country.

Personnel moves

Late last month, it announced that chief financial officer Charles Rockwood was leaving the company after 13 months. That shift came after hirings of a global director of quality and a global director of applications engineering and technical customer support.

Most recently, Evolucia hired an "innovation manager" to direct an LED research center it plans to open early next year. …
