TROY, Mich., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ilumisys, Inc. (http://www.ilumisys.com), developer and producer of next-generation solid-state lighting technology, announced today that it has granted a license for light-emitting diode (LED) fluorescent tube replacements to Lumenor Energy Services, a lighting retrofit company based in South Florida.
"This partnership will allow us to expand our portfolio of LED retrofit products and continue to provide our customers the best options in the industry," said David Matten, managing partner for Lumenor Energy Services. "Our mutual commitment to retrofitting existing infrastructure to be more energy efficient through the use of quality LED products will enable Lumenor and ilumisys to be at the center of the rapidly growing LED industry."
Lumenor Energy Services (LES) focuses primarily on lighting upgrades through LED retrofits. The lighting solutions it provides increase efficiency and delivers financial savings to commercial, residential, hospitality, healthcare, industrial and retail facilities.

By providing licensees access to its expanding patent portfolio, ilumisys believes that the pace of both LED product development and installation will continue to accelerate.
