The Electrical Industry’s Professional Recruiter

Recruiting Services for the Solid State Lighting Industry


Egret Consulting has assisted a variety of Solid State Lighting (SSL) manufacturers since 2007. The U.S. Department of Energy has stated that this industry has the potential to reduce U.S. lighting energy usage by nearly one half, and that it can contribute significantly to various climate change solutions. This emerging industry has introduced many breakthroughs in efficiency and performance through extensive research and development. The skills supporting this industry include sales, management, mechanical and electrical engineering, research & development, designers and more.

Egret Consulting has worked with companies of all size within this market, covering start-up entrants to global electronic giants that are poised to enter the US market. Our value for the SSL industry is that we completely understand commercial lighting, whether that be LED, organic light-emitting diodes (OLED), light-emitting plasma (LEP), or induction lighting manufacturers. We can help companies in this industry attract the talent that they need to continue to evolve and grow.

Egret has worked with lighting industry manufacturers since its inception in 1999. We have helped scores of lighting manufacturers identify talent to help their company grow and prosper. We have placed over 250 lighting company employees in our tenure; from CEO to technical positions, we have done them all.

Our value is that we qualify talent for their skills, their depth of industry knowledge and their overall ‘fit’ within our client companies; relying heavily on our years of lighting industry experience.
