Dialight Stands as the Only Qualified U.S. Manufacturer of LED Traffic Signals for Stimulus Projects

Dec 1, 2010 The U.S. Department of Energy is now mandating that all stimulus-funded LED traffic signal projects across the country use U.S.-made equipment. The move positions Dialight as the only qualified supplier of U.S.-manufactured, fully-compliant LED traffic signal modules to meet the Buy American mandate.

The contentious waiver of the Buy American provision had previously allowed contracts for LED traffic signals to be awarded to foreign suppliers, effectively sending U.S. stimulus dollars and manufacturing jobs overseas. In response, Dialight has recently scaled up to meet increasing demand for its ultra energy-efficient and low-maintenance LED traffic signals, investing some $2 million and adding more than 80 jobs over the last two years.

Dialight has already supplied at least one-third of all LED traffic signals in the U.S. since 2008 and is well-positioned to meet the expected surge in demand as a result of the overturned waiver. The company plans to make an additional $1 million facility investment and add another 70+ jobs over the next year to further ramp up capacity.
