Libra Industries, a privately held electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider, announces that its customer, Ephesus Lighting, Inc. has installed high performance LED stadium lights for the 2015 Super Bowl at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Ephesus Lighting, the leader in providing LED lighting solutions for sports facilities, partnered with Libra Industries for its assembly and test services to complete the project.
“We are thrilled to be partnered with such an innovative company as Ephesus,” said Jennifer Altstadt, President of Libra Industries. “With close collaboration between the two companies, we were able to meet aggressive delivery timelines while working through logistical and technical challenges which is a testament to our EMS assembly expertise.”
The University of Phoenix Stadium, with its retractable roof and field, is unlike any other stadium in North America, and a marvel of design, engineering, and technology. This multi-purpose facility, which opened on August 1, 2006, previously hosted Super Bowl XLII in 2008, two BCS National Championship Games (2007 & 2011), the annual Fiesta Bowl, and numerous international soccer matches. The 63,400-seat stadium, which is expandable to seat 72,200 fans, is owned by the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority (AZSTA) and operated by Global Spectrum.
“We are excited that so many sports and entertainment venues have made the switch to LED lighting over the past two years,” said Mike Lorenz President of Ephesus Lighting. “The feedback from fans, players and broadcasters at venues all across North America that are using our LED sports lighting reinforces that LED is the premier lighting solution for sports and entertainment venues.”
“The capabilities of LED technology have changed the way we view sports lighting,” said Joe Casper, Founder and CTO of Ephesus Lighting. “This is a great opportunity to showcase our innovative lighting technology in a venue that is known as a leader in introducing new ideas to the sports marketplace.”
“We are excited about replacing our metal halide fixtures with state-of-the-art Ephesus LED lighting fixture,” said Peter Sullivan, General Manager and Regional Vice President for Global Spectrum at University of Phoenix Stadium. “As the host venue for the 2015 Super Bowl, we look forward to demonstrating the benefits of LED technology to a global audience.”
“We selected Ephesus after careful consideration of all the other available options. We are confident that their solution will improve lighting for the athletes, fans and broadcasters, all while reducing energy consumption and eliminating conventional sports lighting maintenance expense,” explained Sullivan.
