Cooper Lighting collects 18 awards from major industry competitions

Cooper Lighting has backed up its claim of developing innovative products by recently bringing home a total of 18 awards from major industry competitions. Honored in the Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition, LIGHTFAIR® International Innovation Awards (LIA), Architectural SSL's Product Innovation Awards (PIA) and the 2012 Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX), Cooper Lighting has not only received high-praise for its wide range of LED products and leadership, but also the accompanying hardware to go along with them.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America and the International Association of Lighting Designers, the fourth annual NGL competition recognizes and promotes excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED commercial lighting luminaires. Of the 187 submitted product entries in the 2012 SSL INDOOR Competition, a total of 53 were chosen as winners. That elite group includes the world's first Zhaga complaint IRiS P3LED Directional Luminaire in the Recessed Accent Luminaires category, the Portfolio 6-inch High Output LED Downlight in the Recessed Downlight category and the Corelite Loft LED Micro Luminaire in the Pendant and Surface Linear Luminaires category–all three brands are part of the well-known and highly-acclaimed Cooper Lighting family of products. With these three most recent awards, Cooper Lighting has become one of only a few manufacturers to have ten of its products recognized since the competition's inception.

Cooper Lighting is also proud to be honored with an Innovation Award for its io Lili LED 2' x 2' Recessed Indirect Luminaires in the LIA's Commercial Indoor category. Spanning 14 categories with 228 entries, the LIA competition is judged by an independent panel of renowned lighting industry professionals and focuses on new and truly innovative technologies.

"We are extremely honored to have our products recognized in several of the most sought after and prestigious competitions in the industry," says Cooper Lighting President Mark Eubanks. "We invest heavily in product development across our entire portfolio of quality brands and these awards further validate our commitment to providing innovative, reliable LED solutions for our customers."
