Optec LED lighting.
For over 30 years, California-based Optec Displays focused exclusively in the exterior LED products business, including Electronic Message Centers, and full-color and grayscale video displays. This provided a natural extension into the LED luminaire market. So in 2010 the company established an LED lighting division to serve commercial industries.
Optec LED Lighting is a supplier of high-efficiency, super-bright LED luminaires, ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. The super-bright LED lighting fixtures feature a patented thermal management system that provides efficient heat dissipation and extended LED life.
