200,000-hour luminaire life underscores tremendous savings in installation and maintenance costs; potential rebates further enhance return on investment

MINNEAPOLIS, April 9, 2015—Engineered Products Company (EPCO, www.engproducts.com), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors, today announced a complete retrofit kit for cost-effectively upgrading older luminaires that use T5 or T8 fluorescent lamps to energy-efficient, highly reliable LED luminaires. The announcement follows the company’s January introduction of its Standard LED Luminaire for new construction or lighting-system upgrades.

EPCO President Jack Schuster added, “In addition to energy savings, prescriptive or custom rebates from local electric utilities and co-ops make upgrading to LED lighting systems more financially attractive. With a minimum life expectancy of 200,000 hours, our LED retrofit kit virtually eliminates time and expense associated with changing fluorescent lamps.”

Improved performance, efficacy, and more usable lumens per watt for indoor, outdoor, and wet-location applications make it the preferred lighting system solution for commercial kitchens, food processing facilities, refrigerators and freezers, laundries, locker rooms, saunas, warehouses and more. EPCO’s Standard Luminaire Retrofit Kit is ETL listed and meets UL 1598 Standards.
