Eaton’s Halo Product Line Named the Lighting Leader by BUILDER Magazine Readers for the 19th Consecutive Year, Sweeping all Categories

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Power management company Eaton, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s
2017 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence
Award recipient, today announced that BUILDER magazine’s 2017
Brand Use Study named its Halo® product line the brand leader
in lighting. Awarded for an unprecedented 19th consecutive
year, the Halo product line of recessed, track and surface lighting
products was given top honors, sweeping all four lighting categories of
Brand Familiarity, Brands Used in the Past Two Years, Brands Used the
Most and Quality.

The survey rates important factors influencing the brand selection
process that include product performance, price, availability, warranty,
ease of installation, manufacturer’s reputation and relationships, as
well as green/sustainable features.

“Once again we are honored to receive this recognition and appreciate
the ongoing support of builders, builders/developers and general
contractors,” said Glenn Siegel, director, marketing and product
management, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “For more than 60 years, our
state-of-the-art engineering, on-going research and
development, meticulous product standards and the tradition of
unparalleled service has distinguished the Halo product line the
building community knows and trusts.”

Hanley Wood’s BUILDER magazine and The Farnsworth Group, an independent
research company, conducted the 2017 BUILDER Brand Use Study to provide
an in-depth look at the product brands recognized and used most by
builders, as well as their opinions on important factors that influence
brand selection. The report highlights respondents’ opinions in 51
product categories, with results featured in the April issue of BUILDER

leader today, Eaton’s Halo product line has been providing builders and
customers with high-quality lighting products for their homes and
