CRS Electronics Inc. of Welland, Ontario Canada, a manufacturer of LED lighting, is pleased to announce that Canadian Tire Corporation will be the first major retailer in North America to launch the Energizer(R) branded line of LED lighting products manufactured exclusively by CRS. The originally announced agreement in August, 2011 did not disclose Canadian Tire as the customer.
Under terms of the agreement, CRS will supply Energizer LED lighting products including the A19, MR16, GU10 and a variety of PAR lights (often referred to as “pot lights”). Canadian Tire has committed to showcasing the Energizer lights to educate consumers on the benefits of LED lighting in their homes throughout Canadian Tire locations. Products are scheduled to be available in stores mid-January 2012.
“The Energizer line of LED lights will compliment Canadian Tire’s sustainability initiative and we now supply consumers with more than 1,000 environmentally innovative products and solutions,” said T.J. Flood, Canadian Tire’s Vice-president of Merchandise for the Living Division. “Energizer LED lighting products are manufactured in Canada and live up to the highest quality and reliability standards expected by our customers.”
“We are excited to begin selling the high quality Energizer branded LED lights in Canadian Tire stores for homeowners to enjoy their numerous benefits,” noted Scott Riesebosch, President of CRS Electronics. “Canadian Tire is a significant retail partner, which will greatly assist us as we continue to expand our North American retail base.”
