Governor Terry Branstad Visits Innovative Lighting

Power Over Ethernet LED Lighting

Innovative Lighting’s Power Over Ethernet LED Lighting System captured the attention of an impressive delegation of Iowa’s leaders recently.  Governor Terry Branstad, Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, and Iowa Economic Development Authority Director Debi Durham, as well as several other area leaders were given a demonstration of the new LED lighting technology and a tour of the Innovative Lighting Ankeny office.

The excitement about the possibilities of the new technology was palpable as President/CEO Jerry Handsaker explained the simplicity of PoE LED lighting, the impressive control system offered by Igor Tech, and vast energy savings offered by the entire system.  Ted O’Brien, Vice President of Sales for Innovative Lighting, further increased interest with a real time demonstration of the technology.  LED office troffers were dimming, forming groups, turning on and off in symphonic fashion all while software provided beautifully insightful reporting on the behavior of the energy usage.

After the demonstration and a Q & A session, the crew of leaders were shown the rest of the facility, including the circuit board production area.  American Manufacturing is a hallmark of Innovative Lighting and the company was proud to show off homegrown technology production.
