In 2013, Kristine was named to Jackson Magazine’s class of 30 Under 30, a Michigan based publication, as a result of her commitment to professionalism, and exemplary leadership skill set.  Kristine was also named as EverLast Lighting, Inc. 2013 Employee of the Year.

EverLast® Lighting Now Features Tesleon Digital Induction System, Powered By Bosch

JACKSON, MICHIGAN – June 26th, 2014 – EverLast® Lighting, Inc., the leading manufacturer of energy-efficient lighting solutions for roadway, parking structure, facility and area lighting applications launched its highly anticipated new Digital Induction system collaboratively developed with Robert Bosch, LLC. 

Through state of the art lamp manufacturing processes and digital electronic innovations designed by EverLast® and Bosch; Tesleon® is now the market leader boasting 110 lumens per watt.  Bolt on modular control hardware, and overdesigning a lighting solution to compensate for source degradation is a thing of the past,” commented Alex Orr, Vice President of Sales at EverLast® Lighting, Inc.  “Through this partnership we have created a new genre in the industry, with an onboard CPU and additional wireless control features.”

Through the use of intelligent power management, innovative lamp manufacturing processes and proprietary phosphor blends, the Tesleon® System boasts a lumen maintenance curve of LM-85 at 100,000 hours and will give reluctant consumers an alternate to the volatile LED product options.  

German engineering united with American innovation means a rugged, optimized, reliable lighting solution not seen before in the lighting industry. With automotive grade component life cycle testing and domestic manufacturing standards, the Tesleon® system operates with a failure rate of under 10 parts per million; backed by a 10 year guarantee.

“Controlling the upstream supply chain doesn’t only mean controlling processes, it also ensures using only the highest quality raw materials. With Telseon® digital induction systems powered by Bosch, our engineers have specified and utilized only the highest grade glass, phosphors, processors and electronics components,” explained Paul Wickett, Vice President of Engineering, at Tesleon.  “Tesleon® Digital Induction drivers are truly the first ballast with an aggressive, active power quality management system specifically designed to take on the challenges of today’s grid problems.”

EverLast® digital induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than high pressure sodium and metal halides and are rated up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. In addition to providing a more natural and high color rendition light quality the EverLast® induction lighting fixtures are also available with an onboard wired and wireless dimming options, providing even more material cost and energy savings.  “We couldn’t be more enthused about our EverLast® lines paired with the Tesleon system,” Orr explained.  “Bosch has exceeded expectations, engineering a digital induction system greatly enhances the performance of our already renowned fixtures.”

The EverLast® induction fixtures are commonly used in large scale facilities and can be found installed in COBO Hall in Detroit, Michigan, the Tulsa Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
