Meet Chip, the LED Chip!
Altech would like to welcome the newest member of our team, Chip!
Chip began his career at Altech at the start of 2019 after completing his W-2 form and going through training.

Chip has indicated to us he can work for over 100,000 hours before showing signs of fatigue, but just less than 15%!
Born and raised in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Chip came to the US on a scholarship for bowling. On his free time, Chip bowls. On his busy days, he bowls. We are very excited to have Chip on board with us and we expect great things from him!

We are thoroughly excited to have these gentlemen on board to further continue our mission of providing the highest quality LED Lighting fixtures in the market, coupled with value pricing and unmatched customer service.
Altech Electronics has taken a step further in securing our reputation as one of the best LED Manufacturers in the world. Our 10 Year Wrap-Around Warranty LED UFO Waterproof High Bays, Architectural and Hyper Series Area Lights, and Architectural Series Floodlights are now DLC PREMIUM!
Altech’s outstanding pioneering efforts have yielded lumen efficacy unmatched in the industry today. Although the Premium designation calls for a minimum range of 110-120 Lm/W for outdoor lighting and 90-130 Lm/W for indoor lighting, all of Altech’s DLC Premium fixtures are producing 140-185 Lm/W! With the substantial increase in wattage reduction as a result of our superior product efficiency, you can capitalize on better rebate rates for your projects around the country! In addition, Altech’s energy efficient fixtures are compatible with various integral controls, which translates to smarter lighting and even more energy savings.
The longevity of Altech’s products are constantly pushing the boundaries of modern LED Lighting Solutions as well. DLC Premium fixtures are required to have an L70 of at least 50,000 hours. Altech fixtures are rated twice that amount at 100,000 Hours! That means it would take Altech lights an impressive 100,000 hours before the total light output depreciates to 70%. In addition, our products’ 67,000 hours L90 projection significantly exceeds the L90 DLC Premium requirement of 36,000 hours. Thus, compared to our competitors’ DLC Premium and Standard luminaires, Altech fixtures’ light output will last nearly twice as long before depreciating by just 10%!
To learn more about the countless benefits our DLC Premium lights have to offer and why it is the perfect solution to your lighting and energy-saving needs, CALL US TODAY.
With the latest rounds of tariffs kicking in yesterday, the prices on Chinese goods have continued to soar. This includes raw materials, such as aluminum, and electronic components found in LED Luminaires. HOWEVER, Altech’s PRICES and PRODUCTS will not be affected by this outcome. While other US Suppliers are increasing their prices to coincide with the rising cost of raw materials, Altech’s prices remain unchanged due to the fact we manufacture our own products, which are imported as finished goods straight from our factory. As a result, we control our own supply chain; thereby ensuring the highest quality to Altech’s LED Lighting Fixtures at optimal cost. Our mission has always been to provide the best energy efficient lighting solution at value pricing. CALL US today at (800) 640-0386 to learn more about how Altech Electronics is the supplier you need to be the most competitive lighting distributor in today’s market!
Debuted to much anticipation and rave reviews at Lightfair 2018, our new Hyper Area Light Series have pushed the boundary of light engineering and performance further than ever before. They were designed to be compact and modern-looking, while still retaining the outstanding light output Altech’s fixtures have become famous for. As always, Altech’s new models are supported by our unmatched 10 Year Wrap-around Warranty and competitive value pricing.
Altech’s Hyper Area Light Series is by far the most remarkable pole light we have manufactured to date. The rugged die cast aluminum housing and IP67 rating preserves the functionality of the fixture in even the toughest conditions. The high quality chips the LED boards come equipped with are protected by clear polycarbonate lens, which are both fireproof and shatterproof. These chips emit light levels of 185 lumens per watts, which translates to significantly more energy savings and securing of better rebates.
The Hyper Area Light is dimmable by default and has a built in heatsink that facilitates the dissipation of heat, sustaining the light for a longer period of time. The fixture is rated to last 27 years when operating for 10 hours a day! It is simply astonishing to know all these features are encased in a housing no more than 4 in. thick. In addition, the different options for color temperature, distribution optics, mounting, finish and controls mean the Hyper Area Light is versatile to various project requirements and applications.
The Hyper Area Light comes in two sizes and eight different wattages. The medium sized lines consists of the 60 Watts, 90 Watts, 120 Watts, and 150 Watts fixtures. Measuring at 12.75 in. x 13.75 in. and weighing just 9 lbs, it is perfect for outdoor commercial lighting and parking lots. The larger lines consists of the 150 Watts, 240 Watts, 300 Watts, and 400 Watts fixtures. It measures at 16.8 in x 19.75 in. and weighs 26.5 lbs. This heavier duty high performance area light is better suited for car dealerships and large commercial spaces that require the brightest and most durable exterior lights in the business!
With a maximum lumen output reaching 74,000 lumens and backed by the best warranty in the industry, it is crystal clear why Altech’s new Hyper Area Light is quickly becoming the fixture of choice when reliability and superlative light performance is needed.

We would like to start off by saying a big thank you to everybody who stopped by our booth at Lightfair International 2018 in Chicago, Illinois! It was a pleasure to reconnect and strengthen the relationships with Altech’s current clients and also introduce ourselves to new visitors. There were many reasons for us to be excited about Lightfair and the tremendous success of this year’s convention sets the tone for the rest of 2018.
Our marketing and design department worked tirelessly for months to put together an exhibit unlike any other. Our 20’x20’ booth was a work of art, creating an engaging space for customers at the center with surrounding luminous pillars equipped with our industry leading LED fixtures. The booth was specifically designed to be clean and simple, accentuating the award-winning light performance of our fixtures.
At this year’s Lightfair, we showcased our tried and trusted LED fixtures: Shoebox, Area Lights, UFO Waterproof High Bays, Industrial and Retail High Bays, Wall Packs, Flood Lights, Vapor Tights, Troffers, and Canopies — all with built-in dimming capabilities. While customers surveyed our impressive LED fixtures, our sales team welcomed them with professionalism and extensive knowledge of our products.
Furthermore, Altech debuted our much anticipated new Area Light fixtures, yielding well over 70,000 lumens, at this year’s Lightfair — topped with our world-renowned 10 Year Wrap-Around Warranty and an IP67 rating! We also introduced our newly designed Flood Light that incorporates state of the art reflectant technology that reduces glare while still producing 175 lumens per watt. These results were made possible due to months of ground breaking research from our engineering department to continue our primary mission of manufacturing the highest quality fixture in the industry at value pricing.
To celebrate a successful first day at the convention, Altech hosted a memorable Skyline Cruise. Anchors away at 7PM, we cruised down the famous Chicago River, giving everyone on board a close glimpse and tour of iconic Chicago landmarks such as the Civic Opera Building and Merchandise Mart. The highlight of the night came about an hour into the journey when we sailed out onto Lake Michigan. As the sun set on the horizon, the city lights flickered on, giving Altech’s valued customers a breathtaking view of the Chicago Skyline. It was a beautiful night full of conversation and laughter under a clear starry night.
Our team would like to express our gratitude and honor at meeting everyone and seeing how valuable the Altech brand is to them. At Altech, we always strive to provide the world with the most energy-efficient fixtures and offer an unmatched customer service. We are moved and sincerely appreciate the overwhelming support Altech received for our products and company at this year’s Lightfair and we hope to see you again in Philadelphia next year!
