HUGHEY & PHILLIPS ACQUIRES OBSTRUCTION LIGHTING PRODUCTS FROM HONEYWELL AIRPORT SYSTEMS GROUP IN WEDEL, GERMANY
URBANA, Ohio, February 17, 2011 – Hughey & Phillips LLC, a worldwide leader in the obstruction lighting industry, with headquarters in Urbana, Ohio, announced today it has purchased the entire aviation obstruction lighting product line from Honeywell Airport Systems Group (ASG), a division of Honeywell International, which is based in Wedel, Germany. Terms of the purchase were not released.
“This new LED-based obstruction lighting product line acquisition diversifies and complements our existing globally recognized product line and also opens additional international market segments,” said Jeff Jacobs, Vice-president of Sales for Hughey & Phillips. “Hughey and Phillips already supplies lighting systems throughout the world; this will only strengthen our global presence,” Jacobs explained.
The newly acquired aviation LED product lines will strengthen Hughey & Phillips’ overall portfolio by providing products which meet various international standards. All products will continue to meet the European Union CE standards, which certify that a product has met EU consumer safety, health, or environmental requirements.
The LED-based product lines are specifically designed for the airport and wind turbine markets in Europe. These products can also be used to mark obstructions that are hazardous to air navigation, such as buildings, communication towers, and stacks at
power plants. The E27 low intensity models are designed as a direct replacement for existing incandescent lighting fixtures used in the Honeywell RTO 25 or OTL 80 obstacle lights.
