Advanced Lighting Technologies, LLC (ADLT), starting in 1995, is a market-leading innovator and manufacturer of energy efficient lighting materials and finished products. The Company provides solutions to the growing global movement to decrease energy consumption.

Beginning with advancements in HID (High Intensity Discharge) technology and more recently with the development of LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, ADLT is focused on highly efficient lighting. ADLT’s global reach extends to Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. The Company supplies materials to the lighting industries worldwide, sells its own brands in approximately 50 countries and maintains sales, marketing and production facilities around the world.
