Lutron is a technology-centered and people-driven company. As a private corporation guided by our founder’s simple but profound Five Principles, Lutron has a long history of significant growth and smart innovations.
Light Controls for Every Market
Lutron light control products range from individual dimmers to total light management systems that control entire building complexes. Some of the larger Lutron light control systems in the US include the 52-story New York Times Building in New York; Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia; and the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. On the commercial side, light controls are essential in hotels, restaurants, retail stores, conference facilities, educational facilities, hospitals, museums, and public spaces. Lutron light control systems beautify some of the world’s most prestigious public locations: the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain; and the Bank of China headquarters in Beijing, to name just a few. As world-renowned as they are, Lutron light controls continue to perform the most valuable of personal services – helping to keep people safe and comfortable in their own homes.
On the residential side, light controls are installed everywhere from single-room apartments to palatial homes, including the White House and Windsor Castle. Individual dimmers create a cozy atmosphere at the touch of a button, or can be operated from the car to turn lights on as you approach the house. Groups of dimmers can be operated remotely from a cell phone, PDA, laptop, iPod, touch screen, or universal remote control.
Saving Energy… One Dimmer at a Time
No matter where they’re installed or how big the system, every Lutron product saves energy by reducing electrical consumption. Taken as a whole, Lutron light controls have reduced electrical use by 9.2 billion kWh, which reduces our customers’ electric bills by $1 billion annually. Lutron also protects the environment by decreasing the demand for light bulbs. Since dimmers extend lamp life, customers have to buy fewer bulbs, and that reduces the energy and environmental impacts associated with the manufacturing of fluorescent, incandescent, halogen, and other types of lamps.
A Global Presence
A privately held company, Lutron is headquartered in Coopersburg, PA, about 50 miles north of Philadelphia. Lutron sales and service offices are located worldwide, with offices in London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Beijing.
