Nexxus Lighting announces distributor agreement with PolyBrite

Nexxus Lighting has executed a distributor agreement with PolyBrite International. Under the agreement, Nexxus will begin offering all of PolyBrite's Borealis LED lighting solutions to Nexxus' customers.

Naperville, Ill.-based PolyBrite International has spent more than 17 years developing the LEDs.  Key components of the expanded product line are indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures, including LED recessed flat panels, low-bay and canopy lighting systems, and area site and roadway luminaires.  In addition, Charlotte, N.C.-based  Nexxus will feature Borealis' new LED T8 tubes, A19, R20, R30, candelabra and other decorative lamp products, along with its premier Array line of LED replacement lamps.

"Part of our strategy with Nexxus is to provide leading edge products and superior service," said Robert LaPenta , founder of Aston Capital and board chairman for Nexxus Lighting. "Research shows the growth for LED fixtures is expected to rise faster than that of other light source replacements. The market share for new LED fixture installations is estimated to rise from approximately 7% in 2011 to more than 45% in 2016 and approximately 70% in 2020."

"This agreement allows Nexxus to provide a broader range of lighting solutions to the commercial, industrial, institutional and municipal markets," added Mike Bauer, president and CEO of Nexxus Lighting.  "By partnering with PolyBrite, we quickly and efficiently added a full assortment of complementary bulbs and new luminaires with new technology that is clearly differentiated."
