Musco Lighting expands in continental Europe through joint venture with Ferrostaal

One of the world's leading providers of lighting solutions for sports grounds and large areas, Musco Lighting (Oskaloosa, Iowa, United States), and the international industrial services provider, Ferrostaal Industrial Projects (Essen, Germany) have founded a joint venture company, Musco Ferrostaal GmbH. The objective of the joint venture is to design, supply and install lighting systems for industrial plants and sports grounds in continental Europe. The new company is based in Bottrop, Germany.

Innovative partners to enhance service portfolio
Musco Lighting equips building complexes, industrial plants, logistics facilities and the most famous sporting venues in the world with energy-efficient lighting solutions. These include the White House in Washington, D.C., Jebel Ali Port in Dubai, 2012 London Summer Games, Yankee Stadium in New York, Centre Court in Wimbledon, London and O2 World in Berlin.

"Musco has nearly 40 years of leading the market with cutting-edge products and services. We provide complete lighting solutions, custom-designed to provide the best lifetime cost for the owner and to meet the needs for participants, spectators and television broadcasts," says Jeff Rogers, President of Musco World. "We have worked on several projects in Europe over the past 20 years and our partnership with Ferrostaal allows us to build upon and strengthen that foundation."

"The new joint venture combines the expertise and extensive product portfolio of Musco Lighting with the established distribution network of the Ferrostaal Group. This will enable us to generate joint projects in Europe, and also South America and Asia", explains Dr. Klaus Lesker, Managing Director of Ferrostaal Industrial Projects GmbH.

Flagship product reduces operating costs by up to 50 percent
Musco’s flagship product, Light-Structure Green™ is a custom-designed, energy-saving floodlight system that comes in 5 Easy Pieces™ - complete from foundation to poletop - for fast and straightforward installation. The reflectors are adapted to the respective application, resulting in a higher light yield on the target surface. Compared to conventional floodlighting, Light-Structure Green™ is able to illuminate an area of the same size and light level while using substantially less energy. Thanks to the 10-year warranty period, the customer saves maintenance costs in the long run. Whether on the local football pitch, in a UEFA stadium or lighting industrial plants, taken together with the energy savings, Light-Structure Green™ can reduce operating costs by up to half.
