Welcome to Awaken…

Awaken began with LED lighting 12 years ago by investing in a company developing 'white' LEDs. Ten years ago, Awaken partnered with a company pioneering the design of LED tunnel lighting. And eight years ago, Awaken teamed up with a New York company to design and market Wind/Solar streetlights.

As of 2009 Awaken has dedicated itself entirely to the LED retrofit market, combining the ingenuity of its North American design and development team with the prowess of Asian production to co-design and develop 'Best In Class' professional grade LED lighting.

In 2011, Awaken designed and launched the Qx7 LED Roadway and Area lamp, which was redesigned into the ultra bright Qx8 in 2013, and even brighter and more efficient Qx8Ho in 2014 to replace any 1000w Metal Halide lamp with 70% less power required and a lifetime of 290,000 hours. The Qx8 and Qx8Ho are produced exclusively for Awaken by one of Asia’s largest lighting companies, who designed and produced China’s very first light bulb 95 years ago, and who until recently produced the Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium light bulbs for Philips. The Qx8 ad Qx8Ho are not available anywhere else.

In addition, Awaken has co-design, co-development, marketing and sales partnerships with other 'Best In Class' LED fixture manufacturers. Most notably, linear tubes available with up to 95 CRI; High Bays with up to 40,000 lm; indoor garage lights with integrated microwave motion sensors; floodlights up to 110,000 lm; and more.

To date, through its distributors across North America, Awaken lighting is installed at Boeing, Florida A&M University, Toyota, Chrysler and Kia dealers, Bombardier Aerospace and Laurich Shopping Malls, to name a few. Each of these have been attracted to Awaken’s collaborative 'partnership' approach, proactive culture, and ‘can do’/’will do’ spirit.

Awaken combines its professional grade lighting with factory direct pricing to provide a win win to the end user. Awaken offers a complete cache of ancillary services, including comprehensive ROI and savings analysis, photometric light level studies, utility rebate counsel and analysis, cash flow positive financing, nationwide installation, third party warranty that includes the cost of labor to de-install and re-install, and third party guarantee of predicted energy savings.

Awaken is a division of a 35 year old privately held company. Each member of the Awaken team is dedicated to positioning Awaken as a leader in the ever-evolving LED lighting industry.

We look forward to the opportunity of introducing you to Awaken. The Power of eco Lighting.
