Which Manufacturers Still Sell Fluorescent & HID Product Lines

In late April, Acuity Brands announced the discontinuation of all fluorescent and HID luminaires by December 31st, 2023. This isn’t terribly surprising given the recent laws to ban fluorescent and in some cases, HID lamps by Vermont, California, Canada, the EU, and the UK. More U.S. states are proposing to pass mercury lamp bans.

This got me wondering which lighting manufacturers are still showing fluorescent and/or HID products on their websites. The following list is a review of lighting manufacturer websites that historically sold fluorescent and/or HID lighting. Note that a couple companies have recently announced the closure of all operations. Many other traditional legacy lighting companies have been acquired by companies on the list below.

Manufacturer                                               FL or HID Product on Website as of 5/13/23

Acuity Brands                                               Discontinuing FL & HID by 12/31/23

Current                                                          Yes

Signify                                                            Yes

LEDVANCE                                                  Yes

MaxLite                                                          No

Eye Lighting                                                  Shutting all operations in mid-2023

TCP                                                                Yes

Westinghouse Lighting                               Yes

Universal Douglas                                       Shutting all operations in July, 2023

Venture Lighting                                           Yes

Atlas Lighting                                                Yes

Satco                                                              Yes

Espen Technology                                       Only two FL lamp models plus ballasts

Keystone Technology                                 Yes

 

Nine of the 14 manufacturers above are still showing significant FL or HID products on their websites. Many more lighting companies started business as LED-only manufacturers, and never carried fluorescent nor HID products.
