Innovation from the Very Start 

"Semper Lux" - always light. When Hermann Bansbach started his company in Berlin in 1948, the city still lay in ruins, with hardly any electricity or light. Hermann Bansbach brought light into this dark time by brightening up the lives of Berliners with simple, affordable, battery-powered lamps. He believed that light had a social and cultural significance that went far beyond doing business and making a profit. That mindset is still alive today. We also find it fascinating how we can add to the quality of people's lives through sophisticated lighting concepts. That is how Semperlux became Selux - and how a craftman's shop in Berlin turned into a global company with 500 employees in Europe, North America, and Australia. Today the company generates over 80 % of its revenues outside of Germany.

Continuity Through Innovation

At Selux, staying true to ourselves means staying in the forefront with constant evolution. A company with 30 years in the US and 60 years in Germany and Europe. Evolution that spans so many decades does not become a success through improvised decisions; it comes from careful planning and sophisticated ideas that reflect our company standards in every detail.

Hermann Bansbach brought light into this dark time by brightening up the lives of Berliners with simple, affordable, battery-powered lamps.

We also find it fascinating how we can add to the quality of people's lives through sophisticated lighting concepts. That is how Semperlux became Selux - and how a craftman's shop in Berlin turned into a global company with 500 employees in Europe, North America, and Australia. Today the company generates over 80 % of its revenues outside of Germany.

Continuity Through Innovation

At Selux, staying true to ourselves means staying in the forefront with constant evolution. A company with 30 years in the US and 60 years in Germany and Europe. Evolution that spans so many decades does not become a success through improvised decisions; it comes from careful planning and sophisticated ideas that reflect our company standards in every detail.

At Home Throughout the World

Think global, act local: if you want to enjoy worldwide success, you need to know and understand local markets. In the US as well as Europe, we develop and produce our products for local markets as well as for the global corporate group. As a global company, we can partner to manage projects across international lines; for example the architect can be European, the specifier American and they collaborate for Asian clients.

Lines of Light — Courtesy of Selux
The original linear luminaire was made by Selux. In the 1970s, our straight-line profile lamp was a stunning innovation; for the first time, light could be sold by the meter. Whether straight-line or mitered, it is available in any length,and for any type of building. Even today we continue to perfect the philosophy of modular lighting components

Our Standard: The Exceptional
In color, look, casing, and assembly techniques, Selux offers you the freedom to design. And our team of technicians, engineers, and designers will be happy to provide you with competent advice. Whatever your specific lighting needs, Selux will help you to carry out even the most complex plans, effectively and economically.

Why modular systems?
To help you turn your vision into reality.

Lighting Components for Every Situation
Good lighting is efficient and ergonomic - that's our long-term contribution to quality of life. We produce exactly the types of lighting that designers need to be able to turn their ideas into reality. Many of our product families are based on modular systems, fully scalable housing sizes, lighting units, and technologies so that they can fulfill even the most complex requirements through clean designs and consistent ideas.

State-of-the-Art Optics
High-quality light control and calculation are one of our core competencies. Decades of experience in calculating light, along with relevant experience in materials and light sources, are what allow us to deliver highly efficient, ergonomic solutions. Selux optics are designed so that you can enjoy the quality you expect from top-grade light sources.

Quality is a mindset.
It's evident in our products.

High-Quality Materials and Finish
Quality is a question of detail. Or more accurately: it is a question of materials, from die-cast metals to aluminum components and premium quality plastics. It is a question of skilled workmanship - from the screws to the shadow gaps to the seals that protect our luminaires in any kind of weather or environment. And it is a question of understanding exactly how you need to use light. That is the type of understanding our experts offer - from knowledge about the decades-long lifecycle of external lighting to their uncompromising dedication to meeting the lighting needs of our customers, right down to the last detail. All that adds up to quality. It is what makes the difference between good and excellent products.

Going beyond trends and technology:
our innovations

Vision for Future Generations
We take long-term sustainability seriously: from the very start we have been responsible partners to our clients, our suppliers, and our employees. We also take concrete action to protect the environment by being prudent in our use of resources - through Dark Sky-approved luminaires, emission-free industrial complexes, solvent-free coatings, and solar energy projects.

LED
Shaping the Future
We want to continue improving light, and are never afraid to try out something new in order to achieve our goals. We conduct design studies to gain a deeper understanding of technology for our series production, and network our knowledge to help develop cutting edge innovations. By cultivating creative networks and hosting events, we foster dialog with other companies and professionals in our business. One example of that is “Manta Rhei," a joint project with ART + COM, a design office. By combining up-to-the-minute OLED technology, electronics, and control technology, we have created a next generation luminaire that floats silently through the room, continually changing its appearance and creating a captivating combination of motion and light.

New Perspectives with LED and OLED
LED and OLED open up a whole new word of economy, ergonomics, and design. The minimalistic shapes of these two technologies allow even more integrative product design. Used properly, they result in even greater efficiency: they are long lasting, use less energy, and allow light to be precisely directed and controlled. The future of light – at Selux, we call it the present.

A Partner with Solid Roots
We know that the best ideas and solutions are born in an open-minded, reliable, and friendly environment built on trust. And that's the way we work: in a spirit of close collaboration that leads to success.

Making Life Easier
Technology is complicated enough. That is why we do everything we can to make things as easy as possible. This means not only minimizing product maintenance, but also any effort and care our products need. We examine and re-examine every aspect of our design and configuration to maximize customer benefit in every detail.

Open for New Ideas
We are always open to a good idea. Our close collaboration with our clients, suppliers, and partners, along with our tight networks in the markets we serve, help us to spot new ideas and trends early and incorporate them into the development of new products. We also help to foster interest in good lighting and architecture by sponsoring university events, competitions for students, as well as international gatherings for the world's leading lighting designers.

We produce luminaires.
But we deliver quality of life.

COMPANY DESCRIPTION:

James L. Taylor established the James L. Taylor Manufacturing Company in 1911 to produce his patented quick-adjusting, self-locking bar clamp. This patented clamp was a significant step forward in the edge gluing of lumber.

In the 1920's, the Taylor revolving Clamp Carrier was developed and patented. It was a major first step toward mass production.

In 1940 Taylor engineers developed the Panel Flo, a continuous feed edge gluing machine. From the very beginning, the Panel Flo was acclaimed as the answer to mass production gluing. In 1950 Taylor introduced the Panel Mint, a batch type semiautomatic edge gluer which filled the gap between the Clamp Carrier and the fully automated Panel Flo. During the 1950's and 1960's, Taylor designed new cost cutting accessories to compliment the Panel Flo and Panel Mint. These included the Conveyorized Glue Applicator, Mix-Mizer and Automatic Cut Off Saw. Also in the 1960's, Taylor revived the Clamp Carrier design by introducing the pneumatic Clamp Tightener and Panel Flattener.

During the 1970's, the Taylor Panel-Mint was the machine of choice. This well designed Steam-Heated Batch Press matched with low cost urea resin glue was used by many furniture manufacturers to produce hardwood and softwood panels. Midway through the 1980's, Taylor designed and produced the first Automated Clamp Carrier. This changed the direction of the Clamp Carrier line and made it the industry standard for edge gluing machines.
Our history of innovation is best illustrated by our list of Challengers Award Winners and Finalists:

1986 - Automated Clamp Carrier – Winner
1988 - Opti-Sizer – Winner
1992 - Dual Automated Clamp Carrier – Finalist
1994 - Automated Glue Applicator – Finalist
1996 - Side Loading Clamp Carrier – Finalist
2002 - Opti-Match – Winner
2012 - Flooring Nester – Winner

Up until August of 2014, Taylor Manufacturing operated out of a 45,000 square foot factory in the city of Poughkeepsie, NY. Taylor had resided in this facility since 1911. Over the years the building was expanded and updated to continue to provide our customers with the quality machines.

Today, Taylor Manufacturing, JLT Clamps, and Cameron Automation all reside in the same building, a 100,000 square foot facility in the town of Poughkeepsie, NY. Just minutes from our old facility, our new factory has allowed us to expand as a company and continually improve our manufacturing processes. Our balanced team of seasoned professionals and young engineers will continue to develop new technology to increase efficiency, reliability, and product quality.

COMPANY DESCRIPTION:

AERCO International, Inc. is a recognized leader in delivering cost-effective, commercial condensing boilers, high-efficiency water heaters and energy recovery solutions across a variety of markets including education, lodging, government, office buildings, healthcare, industrial and multifamily housing. Our system design approach enables us to provide customer-specific solutions that deliver superior building performance at a lower operating cost while assuring uptime reliability.

It all started with a vision.

When Henry Angelery founded AERCO as Angelery Engineering Research Company in 1949, his goal was to deliver on-demand temperature-controlled water heating without storage. That vision became a reality when AERCO introduced an innovative design for an indirect-fired water heater – and it revolutionized the water heating industry.

AERCO continued to innovate and in 1988, introduced the first condensing and fully modulating boiler and water heater to the commercial market. The modulating capability of these products, still unsurpassed more than 25 years later, matches the equipment's output to real-time heating demand, ensuring the units draw no more fuel to operate than is absolutely necessary. This not only saves precious energy, but also ensures money doesn't needlessly disappear "up the stack."

AERCO differentiates itself through a solution-based model, leveraging decades of engineering experience and industry application expertise to understand each customer’s unique needs. By partnering directly with customers and end-users to understand their project-specific requirements, AERCO provides tailored application solutions that are comprised of original product technologies including high efficiency condensing products, compact footprints, high turndown ratios, unique fuel delivery, leading control systems and proprietary design elements that combine to deliver up to 99% efficiency. 

In 2011, AERCO relocated its corporate headquarters to Blauvelt, New York in a 163,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with a 12,000 sq. ft. AHRI accredited Engineering Laboratory.  AERCO’s world-class operation supports differentiated manufacturing competencies, including highly specialized brazing and welding, driving superior product performance and increased design flexibility. AERCO has built its operations around the Lean Value Stream concepts, where cross-functional teams focus on adding value in the most efficient manner.

“Engineering Research” is embedded in AERCO’s name, identity and philosophy. Throughout its 65-year history, AERCO has continually strived for excellence which has resulted in a number of industry firsts and cemented its position as a technology leader.
