LSI Receives 2010 Manny Award

LSI Industries Inc. was honored to be a recipient of the 2010 MANNY Award from Cincy Magazine, a leading business publication in Greater Cincinnati. This prestigious award has been given annually for the past four years to outstanding manufacturing companies for their innovation and best practices in the Tristate. LSI was given the award in the Green category for its innovative Crossover® LED lighting fixtures.

In 2005 LSI recognized the emerging benefits of LED technology as a white light source for light fixtures that would provide excellent lighting performance while using considerably less energy than traditional light sources. In addition to eliminating mercury and other hazardous materials, we knew that reducing energy consumption would have significant impact on our environment by reducing greenhouse gasses and carbon footprints.

LSI has been very deliberate in the development of its LED lighting products. We made a significant investment to develop the best LED technology in the industry and have put it through rigorous testing in our ETL certified lab as well as testing and listing them to UL standards with independent labs. Using this technology, which we call SmartTec™, has resulted in a comprehensive product line called Crossover® LED lighting. Crossover LED lighting is being widely accepted and used worldwide.

The Crossover family includes fixtures specifically designed to address a number of lighting applications – roadway, parking lot, parking garage, canopy, soffit, bollard, wall mount, inground landscape / architectural feature, step, interior display and cove, cooler, interior ambient and sign. 

In less than 3 years, over 100,000 and growing Crossover LED fixtures have been installed in both new construction and retrofit applications, reducing energy consumption by 40% – 80% (depending upon the Crossover fixture) when compared to the traditional lamp alternatives. That has had a tremendous impact on our environment by reducing the following greenhouse gasses by the following tons-

• Carbon Dioxide 62,133

• Methane 2,130

• Nitrous Oxide 252

• Sulfur Hexafluoride 1,874

This reduction is equivalent to removing more than 10,000 cars from the environment each year. LSI is proud to be an ENERGY STAR® partner as well as a participant in the Department of Energy’s Solid-State Lighting Quality Advocates program. Crossover fixtures are considered IDA Approved and Dark Sky Friendly® by the International Dark Sky Association. LSI Crossover fixtures have received numerous industry recognitions including:

• 2008 Best New Product by Convenience Store Petroleum Magazine

• Illuminating Engineering Society 2009 Progress Report

• 2009 Second Annual Next Generation Luminaires Design Competition 

We are committed to continuing our effort to deliver responsible, effective, energy-efficient lighting solutions. LSI’s major markets are the commercial / industrial lighting, petroleum / convenience store, multi-site retail (including automobile dealerships, restaurants and national retail accounts), sports and entertainment markets throughout the world.
