CAST Lighting and Weathermatic Announce Partnership in International Market
David Beausoleil, President of CAST Lighting LLC., announced today a partnership between his company and Weathermatic, a Dallas-based manufacturer of quality irrigation products. The partnership brings the CAST Lighting line of low-voltage landscape lighting to dozens of existing and emerging distribution points in over 45 countries.
Beausoleil notes, “The reputation of CAST Lighting as the premier manufacturer of high quality outdoor lighting products has spread throughout the world. We receive numerous requests from landscape architects and designers in many other countries. Now, with this Weathermatic partnership, we will offer regional points of distribution to best serve this international lighting design community.”
CAST Lighting differs from other lighting manufacturers in its emphasis on hands-on support at the distributorship level. The company does not allow its products to be sold by Internet retailers to protect the regional distributors and to ensure that contractors receive the highest level of customer service. By partnering with Weathermatic’s overseas distributors, CAST Lighting is able to extend this philosophy to the international market.
Mr. Said El-Kaissi, International Sales Manager for Weathermatic, said, “The partnership between Weathermatic and CAST Lighting was struck because the two companies are closely aligned in their commitment to quality. Many companies in both the irrigation and lighting industry offer a mix of high and low quality – CAST Lighting and Weathermatic share the strategy of making every product rugged and durable with the highest level on ongoing performance.”
The CAST Lighting product line consists of solid bronze lighting fixtures, marine-grade wire, multi-tap transformers, and complete system components. The company is the only manufacturer to offer an affordable line of solid bronze landscape lights. These corrosion-resistant, unbreakable fixtures are manufactured in the company’s own foundry in South America using the ancient method of sand-casting.
Beausoleil explains, “By owning our own bronze foundry, we have complete control over the quality of our lights. We set and maintain high standards to ensure consistent performance. Our customers include some of the best and brightest designers in the industry who appreciate the tremendous value of our products compared to the Asian-produced fixtures of our competitors.”
The timing of the partnership coincides with the recent world-wide focus on emerging green technologies, especially on finding energy-efficient lighting solutions. Shifting from high-voltage exterior lighting to the low-voltage type that CAST Lighting offers, presents up to 70% in energy savings – a significant reduction that justifies the cost of conversion.
