As many Altair customers are aware, Altair formed a spin-off venture and wholly owned subsidiary, TOGGLED, to design, engineer and manufacture light-emitting diode (LED) lighting solutions to replace T12/T8 fluorescent tubes. Based on intellectual property originating out of our Altair ProductDesign consulting practice, to date this business has received over 50 patents in and around LED lighting. With our highly automated manufacturing operations up and running right around the corner from our world headquarters in Troy Michigan, TOGGLED is now producing globally competitive LED lights in high volumes for commercial and residential lighting applications.

With the continued success of this business and the many benefits TOGGLED lighting offers including:

• 40-70% lower lighting energy costs
• Long life, commercial-grade construction
• Better quality of light with no flicker or buzz
• Instant start even in the cold
• Mercury free and no glass
• Eliminates ballasts and maintenance

We are very pleased to share that TOGGLED LED products are now available for purchase at The Home Depot, both online and through its Pro Desks.
