To meet the increased demand for specification projects and new products from distributors and other industry professionals, MaxLite® has created a Lighting Application and Certification department at its MaxLite West facility in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., and has appointed David M. Delgado as manager. For the past two years, Delgado has served as the company’s lighting application specialist. He reports to Thomas Rhee, executive vice president.
“In just two years, David has developed hundreds of lighting layouts for customers and expanded his department’s output by more than 250 percent,” says Rhee. “His promotion is well-deserved and we look forward to his continued success as we expand our western operation.”
In his new position, Delgado oversees the application and certification department including specialists that provide technical assistance. In addition, he ensures that lighting plans and product designs conform to industry codes and standards including California’s Title 24, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), DesignLights Consortium® (DLC), Lighting Facts, Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Environmental Testing Laboratories (ETL), and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF).
With nearly 30 years of lighting industry and application expertise, Delgado also served as Sales Manager for ATG Electronics, Technical Support and Lighting Applications Engineer/Warranty Service Manager for Nora Lighting, and a variety of technical support and application positions for California Lighting Sales, Total Lighting Concepts, Hydrel Lighting, and Kim Lighting.
