SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- By revolutionizing the science of light time and time again, lighting visionary Fred Maxik has taken the small company he started in 2004 and made it into one of America's premier lighting manufacturers—Lighting Science Group Corporation.  Filing his 100th patent application to deliver on the promise of LED technology, Fred joins an elite class of prolific American innovators who are pioneering leading solutions to the world's energy and environmental challenges.

"Fred is the modern day Thomas Edison—the personification of the American innovation and entrepreneurial spirit—and he never ceases to amaze me," said Zach Gibler, Chief Executive Officer, Lighting Science Group Corporation. "He consistently pushes the envelope of what people think is possible, allowing the Company to bring to market state-of-the-art lighting solutions that consistently outperform the competition at a price that Americans can afford."

Developers and suppliers of LED lighting for NASA, the Times Square Ball, lighting companies, major cities, and retail chains, Lighting Science Group is a leader in the lighting industry for highly efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly lighting solutions.  And, in doing so, the Company is doing its part to rebuild America's manufacturing base and adding U.S. jobs.

"Several years ago, no one thought what we are doing today was possible and now these transformational products are in the marketplace," said Fred Maxik, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, Lighting Sciences Group Corporation. "Built right here in the U.S., these products are providing Americans the freedom to switch to long-lasting, environmentally responsible, and sustainable LED solutions that make economic sense—without sacrificing lighting quality."

The breadth and scope of Fred's patent applications are extensive focusing on breakthrough power supplies, novel ways of controlling LEDs, enhanced and exotic materials, and new optical systems. However, they all have common denominator—changing the way the world experiences light.
