April 11, 2013 – Harvard Engineering—a player in the design, development and manufacture of LED drivers and control products for the lighting industry—has signed a sole agreement with Venture Lighting for the distribution and sale of Harvard’s LeafNut solution in Canada and the States.
“Harvard’s driver and wireless controls expertise and knowledge is unmatched in the industry today, and combined with Venture’s sales, marketing, operational and service support network, we have the perfect partnership for developing the opportunities for LeafNut in North America,” said Ken Hawley, vice-president of sales and marketing at Venture.
LeafNut is a wireless control, management and reporting system for large deployments of outdoor lighting that promises “substantial” energy and cost savings. The solution uses a Central Management System (CMS) technology to remotely monitor and control each individual light.
“The agreement underlines our commitment to Venture Lighting as our only LeafNut sales partner for USA and Canada,” said Antony Corrie, vice-president at Harvard Americas. “Venture’s extensive knowledge of the high-power lighting market will allow the company to introduce LeafNut’s control management capabilities to a broader customer base.”
