Joel and Ruth Spira founded Lutron Electronics Company, Inc. in 1961. Lutron's first product was called a "dimmer switch" and represented the world's first solid-state electronic device used to dim lights in a home, replacing bulky rheostats and autotransformers that were inefficient and unattractive. Although Lutron has grown substantially over the past several decades, the company still maintains the feel and personal closeness of a smaller firm, and to this day still operates under the guidance of the company's 5 Principles:
Today, over 45 years later, Lutron is still devoted to controlling lighting. Our focus on product innovations, technology, quality, and customer service has made us the undisputed leader worldwide in the area of lighting controls. We offer more than 10,000 products to satisfy virtually any residential or commercial project. Lutron products adjust the intensity of virtually every kind of light, and we remain to this day the only company that provides an integrated solution for controlling both natural daylight as well as electrical lighting.
Our complete line of lighting control solutions for residences as well as for commercial projects located within North and South America is supported by our corporate headquarters in Coopersburg, PA (northwest of Philadelphia) as well as numerous sales and service offices located throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. Our global sales and service efforts are supported by our worldwide offices with European headquarters in London and other sales and service offices located throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Lutron's position as the leading manufacturer of lighting controls worldwide, our unsurpassed quality, the breadth and depth of our product offerings, and our commitment to servicing our worldwide customers have resulted in an average growth of approximately 20% annually. This growth has in turn allowed the company to continue to invest in recruiting and retaining the best people we can find to help us service our customers. Continuous growth has also fueled our ability to constantly develop new technologies and new manufacturing processes that in turn drive the creation of new or better products and services.
Whether you are a homeowner seeking to enhance the appearance or atmosphere of a single room, or a facilities manager looking to enhance employee productivity and comfort while reducing energy-related costs throughout an entire corporate campus, Lutron can offer you the best value lighting control solutions that will meet or exceed your expectations while staying within your budget.
