LED specialty manufacturer FC Lighting Inc. is celebrating its 25th year of sustained growth by “moving on up” from its old headquarters in Addison, Ill., to larger and more efficient new facilities in St. Charles, just west of Chicago. Although some settling-in and IT installations are still being wrapped up, the company said its new headquarters and operations center is up and running.

The new complex features an efficient and productive environment, and a decidedly “green” orientation from the décor to the environmentally-friendly operations. A key feature of the new facility is “The Edge,” a 4,000-square-foot educational center for LED technology. The interactive center, which features moving walls and panels to accommodate various multi-media presentations and mock-ups of lighting configurations, is a resource for lighting designers, engineers and building professionals. Visitors can learn about solid-state lighting operation and application and experiment with components and measuring devices to develop lighting plans for their projects and compare heat build-up profiles for different fixtures. The Edge center will also serve as a training base for FC's professional lighting application agents.
