Eaton’s Halo Product Line Named the Leader in Lighting by BUILDER Magazine for the 18th Consecutive Year

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Power management company Eaton, a 2016 ENERGY STAR® Partner
of the Year, today announced that BUILDER magazine’s 2016 BUILDER
Brand Use Study named Eaton’s Halo® product line the brand
leader in lighting. Awarded for an unprecedented 18th consecutive year,
the Halo product line of recessed, track and surface lighting was given
top honors in the lighting categories of Brand Familiarity, Brands Used
in Past Two Years and Brands Used the Most.

“For 60 years, Halo’s state-of-the-art engineering, on-going
research and development, meticulous product standards and
tradition of unparalleled service has distinguished Halo as the
product line builders know and trust,” said Glenn Siegel,
director, marketing and product management, Eaton’s Lighting Division.
“As we celebrate our 60th anniversary milestone this year, we
appreciate the ongoing support of the builder community and are once
again honored to receive this recognition.”

Hanley Wood’s BUILDER magazine and The Farnsworth Group, an independent
research company, conducted the 2016 BUILDER Brand Use Study to provide
an in-depth look at the product brands builders recognize, use most and
their opinions including the important factors that influence brand
selection. The report highlights respondents’ opinions in 70 product
categories, with results featured in the April issue of BUILDER magazine.

From what began as a small business start-up in 1956 to the industry
leader today, the Halo product line has been providing builders and
customers with high-quality lighting products for their homes and
businesses, including the first ENERGY STAR®-certified
light-emitting diode (LED) downlight in 2009. Today, as energy codes and
legislation continue to advance, Eaton’s comprehensive portfolio of Halo
LED products addresses the need for high-performing, reliable choices,
while creating a comfortable living and work environment.
