HiLumz USA: Lighting Manufacturer Named a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company


Atlanta — PRNewswire — Feb. 23, 2016 — The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, announced HiLumz USA LLC as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.

TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2016 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 17 at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

TAG'S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia's technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.

"The 2016 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia's Technology community," said Tino Mantella, president and CEO, TAG. "The 2016 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our state such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia's technology community."

This year's Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the "Top 40" will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2016 Georgia Technology Summit.

"An extraordinary number of truly innovative technology companies participated in this year's Top 40 competition, demonstrating the depth and breadth of Georgia's technology community," said Dennis Zakas, managing partner, Zakas & Leonard, LLP, CEO of Zinc, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. "In fact, based on the quality of the contestants, we could have had a 'Top 60' without losing a beat."

HiLumz USA continues to focus technology efforts by offering its third generation of cost-effective LED retrofits. Retrofitting existing fixtures eliminates the expense of higher-priced LED fixtures and installation costs, architectural approvals, government permitting, and the discard of existing traditional fixtures into already over-burdened landfills.

The HiLumz Diamonz LED retrofit kits provide superior modularity, flexibility, and ease of installation through the use of its patent-pending FlexMount attachment system.

In addition to its industry-leading retrofit technology and AC LED (driver-on-board) product lineup, HiLumz USA is currently promoting the kickoff of its new line of LED fixtures — HyperNOVA. The HyperNOVA fixtures can be used for street, parking lots, high bays, and more with current equivalents from 150 to 400 watts. 

In support of these new and expanded initiatives, HiLumz USA relocated in late 2015 from a 4,800-square-foot facility to a solar-powered 13,000-square-foot facility in Alpharetta, Ga.

The 2016 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,300 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals, and academics to celebrate and recognize Georgia's technology community. In addition to presentations from some of the top technology influencers in the nation, the newest member of the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia will be inducted.
