Manncorp Acquires LED Living Technology


Reading time ( words)

Following in the footsteps of founder Oliver Szeto, LED Living Technology will continue its tradition of sustainable lighting solutions at the forefront of the LED industry as it joins the family at Manncorp. With the current national push for onshore production, LED Living Technology is committed to offering the same high-quality, American-made products under its new management. 

Since 1992, Oliver Szeto had been a leading innovator of highly specialized LED lighting applications for the machine vision industry. Not only did he push the boundaries of LEDs for over 25 years, but he strongly believed in manufacturing his products in the United States, supporting local vendors and suppliers. In 2009, Oliver established LED Living Technology (LLT), a commercially focused LED lighting manufacturer. In a market flooded with sub-par products from off-shore production, his goal was to offer industry-leading performance and reliability while maintaining US-based design and manufacturing. After thorough research and exhausting design work, LLT introduced their cutting-edge product lines including Claris, the popular fluorescent-to-LED retrofits.

From the debut of Claris in 2012, LLT saw exponential sales growth, set new bars for performance in the industry, and expanded and improved their product lines until December 2016 when, sadly, Oliver Szeto lost his battle with cancer at the age of 56. His vision of the future for LLT may not have been fully realized, but his dream will proudly live on as part of the Manncorp family. The acquisition of LLT includes several patents for the Claris line, as well as other patents pending associated with new and upcoming product lines. Manncorp and ELEDLIGHTS are proud to welcome LED Living Technology to the fold under the direction of Adam Gernerd, LLT’s former lead product developer and sales manager who worked alongside Oliver for six years.
