I REMEMBER WHEN FLUOURECENTS WERE THE NEW TECHNOLOGY BY BILL BROWN, CHAIRMAN, A.L.P. LIGHTING COMPONENTS COMPANY www.alplighting.com & BILL BROWN SALES www.billbrownsales.com

I have been in the lighting industry for almost 65 years.  When I started, fluorescents were the new technology.  It took fluorescents almost 30 years to develop and become a stable product in the industry.  It’s my observation that LED technology is advancing much faster than fluorescent technology ever did because global communication has become so much easier.  Between e-mail and social media information moves exponentially faster, as a result change is happening more rapidly than ever before, and while much of that is good, it’s important to be careful to verify these new technologies.

As I observe the new solid state technology and the rapid product development.  To me it’s both exciting and challenging.   Lighting is a dynamic industry and I encourage all of us that are in it to remain committed to the future and at the same time to use good judgment about the present. I support change and look forward to the future.
