An Arizona Home Is What You Make It

At AEI Lighting, we've been based in Arizona for nearly twenty years.  Our roots are here, our home is here and our business is here.  The Southwest, with its 'golden triangle' of Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, constantly delivers tremendous enterprising opportunities for us to exploit the great benefits of our energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures such as our Apollo and Allure high bays and our LED Retrofit kits.

We are proud to say that we are growing with our Arizona, Southwest and U.S. customers and taking care of their needs through our quality AEI product and stellar 'Personalized' customer service.  For us, it's not cliché to say that 'every lighting job is the most important to us' -- after all, our customers entrust their 'important' jobs to us every day.  We are blessed to be the 'go to' LED (and fluorescent) lighting choice by our great clientele and keep our goal of 'ultimate customer satisfaction' as Job #1.

As we trend toward spring here in Arizona, the warming progress of the 'Valley of the Sun' is raising the bar on expectations in all that we do.  Like the Spring Training baseball players that descend on Scottsdale, Peoria, Chandler and Goodyear each year, we are up for the challenge.

In short, we love what we do, we're here to stay and we're always asking 'How Can We Illuminate Your World?'

Constantly in Awe,

AEI Allure & Apollo LED High Bay Are Best-In-Class

At AEI Lighting, we take pride in developing the most cost-efficient, energy-efficiency LED lighting fixtures for you that yield optimal footcandles (fc) for your warehouse, distribution center or facility.  

Two of our more popular LED high bay fixtures for warehouses, distribution centers and processing facilities are our Allure LED and our award-winning Apollo LED.  

THE ALLURE SERIES.  Our 'Made In The USA' Allure AHB Series LED combines its luminous talents for all high- and low-bay applications.  The Allure is powered by our own AEI brand LEDs with NICHIA N757D chips and comes in 2-, 3- and 4-LED board configurations.  As always, this IP55 rated fixture comes with our 5-Year Limited Warranty on all fixture components.




THE APOLLO SERIES.  Our Apollo 3 Lamp Series LED fixture, also 'Made In The USA', was Next Generation Luminaire's Award-Winning Industrial High Bay for 2014.  The Apollo fixtures utilize high-output Bridgelux Vero 18 & 29 LEDs with efficacy up to 130 lm/W.  With designs that come in 3, 4, 6 and 7-lamp, the Apollo Series has excelled in detailed testing against competitive fixtures, yielding up to 20% more footcandles (fc) while using just 60% of the wattage.  The added illumination and energy-savings provided by the Apollo Series high bays is a game-changer in the lighting industry.
