Announcing our new strategic alliance with Acuity Brands
PURO Lighting is very excited to announce an important step forward in our mission to be the leader in innovative UV disinfection products, through our new strategic alliance with Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI). This strategic alliance will allow us to accelerate our growth, broaden manufacturing, and innovate and develop new products in the increasingly competitive UV light disinfection marketplace.
There are a lot of reasons why we’re so excited about our new alliance. Acuity Brands is one of the world’s leading providers of lighting, lighting controls and building management solutions. This relationship, building on agreements already in place with our great technology partner Violet Defense® and will allow Acuity Brands access to Violet Defense’s patented, pulsed-xenon UV technology. Plus, through this relationship, PURO Lighting will able to leverage the extensive supply chain capabilities of Acuity Brands, work with Acuity as the contract manufacturer for PURO-branded disinfection products, and scale production to make PURO Lighting products more accessible and affordable in an increasingly active and competitive marketplace.
But perhaps the most exciting part for us is that together PURO Lighting and Acuity Brands will immediately begin co-developing the next generation of new and innovative UV technology products. We’re going to start innovating with Acuity Brands, creating new product ideas, and building on our deep understanding of the emerging UV disinfection market. We’ve already seen that our customers from healthcare, transit, schools, hospitality, and other industries are highly motivated to find UV disinfection products for a wide variety of infection control requirements and budgets, and that will provide PURO Lighting with the opportunity to deliver effective and affordable solutions, and to protect the public today during COVID-19, virus and whatever may come in the future.
Currently being utilized in hospitals and urgent care clinics, hotels, manufacturing facilities, universities, police departments, fire departments, fitness centers and more throughout the United States, PURO UV Disinfection Lighting, powered by Violet Defense technology, offers flexible and affordable disinfection solutions — from our Sentry mobile disinfection units to our powerful Helo units, the first known, full-spectrum UV fixture small enough to be wall-mounted or installed in a ceiling.
Here’s to a bright, safe and disinfected future for us all!
