OAKLAND, N.J. – September 4, 2018 – Amerlux, an award-winning design-and-manufacture lighting company, announced today it will expand its growing portfolio of products to fast-track to market at a lower cost, specifically catering to the needs of design-build firms.
After listening to its customers, Amerlux is introducing the new Value Line, which features products that deliver the same spec-grade engineering and high-end aesthetics that built the company’s storied brand, but in standard sizes at more cost-effective pricing, compared to its made-to-measure products in its Quality Line.
“Our new Value Line of products will deliver more speed to market at an appealing price point without sacrificing quality, ensuring design-build firms keep their promises to owners,” said Amerlux CEO and President Chuck Campagna. “Keeping with our tradition of innovation, we will deliver new products that can be shipped in less than 10 days to accommodate the growing demand for the design-build delivery method in new construction and retrofits.”
More than half of surveyed owners have already or will use design-build in the next five years. Design-build is anticipated to account for 44 percent of construction spending in various segments, including manufacturing and commercial, between 2018-2021. Experience with design-build firms was rated highest across all construction delivery methods with 76 percent reporting very good and excellent experiences, according to a recent FMI Design-Build Market research report. Innovation and fast-track capabilities were listed as the top associated benefits.

Comprising 10 interior and exterior products to date, Amerlux’s Value Line includes linear
lighting, down lights, track lighting, pedestrian lights, step lights, accent lights and flood lights. Value Line products typically can be shipped to a jobsite in 3-10 days to quickly advance any new construction or retrofit project.

The CSL’s LEDs deliver an outstanding lifespan and maintains more than 90 percent of its initial lumen output for more than 100,000 hours. The product ships in four to six weeks.
