We’re proud of the fact that our customers have always helped to shape our product lines.
Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Precision Paragon [P2] introduced Russell Price as its new director of engineering. Price will have responsibility for the product, application, and production engineering team at its Southern California Headquarters, as well as its manufacturing plants in Florida and Wisconsin.
Joe Martin, VP/GM made the announcement, noting that “LED light sources and advanced lighting controls are evolving at unprecedented speeds. As energy efficient lighting specialists, our customers expect us to keep them current. Russell joins us with the mission of exceeding that expectation, further accelerating [P2]’s product development cycle, and the continual integration of cutting edge technologies into our product lines.”
For over 20 years, Price has worked in lighting product design and development, helping companies optimize resources and create products that fulfill customer needs.
While Price has product concepts that deploy fluorescent, induction, and LED light sources, he is especially interested in adding to [P2]’s LED product line.
“Obviously the LED market transformation is underway. When you are looking at lighting retrofit products for commercial and industrial settings, it is clear that certain applications will proliferate based on return on investment.” Price adds, “I feel a real responsibility to develop products that produce not just a great return on investment, but an excellent illuminated environment as well.”
Since joining [P2] in August, Price has focused on making sure the right product initiatives are on the boards, and once they are launched as projects, that they move expeditiously through the hurdles necessary to get to market. In the case of LED, this means a rigorous path through retrofit return-on-investment feasibility, optical and thermal modeling, LM-79 and LM-80 testing.
Martin and the rest of the [P2] management team are excited about Price’s experience and drive because of what it means for customer service.
“We know our customers depend on us for great service and application support; a big part of that is offering them the right products, and that doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We’re proud of the fact that our customers have always helped to shape our product lines. Russell understands this, and that makes him a great fit at [P2],” Martin said.
