Rochester-based OLEDWorks LLC contributed its Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) lighting installations in select Wegmans stores and worksites, thereby enhancing the Wegmans experience. OLED lighting provides naturally diffused light with unrivaled light quality.  OLED Works says OLED lighting produces an atmosphere that promotes well-being from healthy light without glare.

OLED Works Produces OLED Light Engines

OLEDWorks manufactures OLED light engines that traditional luminaire manufacturers integrate into light fixtures. For the Wegmans installations, Acuity Brands Lighting produces the Olessence OLED lighting fixtures in the vestibules of Pittsford and Henrietta stores. Wegmans has also remodeled certain areas of their Rochester headquarters with a focus on employee meeting and dining areas. Fixtures for these spaces include the Petal and Limit from Visa Lighting  of Milwaukee and the Trilia from Acuity Brands Lighting.

“We are excited to partner with a local company to bring new technology, first developed by Kodak engineers and Acuity Brands, to our customers and employees,” said Paul Stuart, Wegmans’ sr. merchant construction/maintenance. “This will give us the opportunity to test better-quality lighting that has the added benefit of not emitting heat.”

“Wegmans just reached into their backyard to design a lighting experience that once again sets them apart,” said David DeJoy, chairman of OLEDWorks’ board.  “OLED was invented in Wegmans’ hometown, Rochester, New York. Wegmans recognized their unique position to explore OLED lighting, once again demonstrating leadership in the many touch points with customers and staff.”
