pūr-led™ and COVID-19

By | News | No Comments

PMC Lighting has fielded many inquiries regarding our pūr-led™ family and its ability to fight COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Vital Vio hasn’t tested against Coronavirus directly because it is only available in a few labs in the US and not for external testing. That being said viruses don’t contain the molecule activated by the wavelengths in pūr-led™ powered by Vital Vio products. Bacteria, mold, yeast, fungi and spores, which also contribute to widespread illnesses much more frequently, do contain those molecules. Fun fact: often viruses can be transmitted or moved for longer periods of times through these other organisms which Vital Vio technology does kill.


Viruses are also more likely to spread through droplets from coughing, sneezing etc. so hygiene is the strongest asset in the fight as we are sure you have been reading. Our products target the germs, with this molecule, that last and lurk on surfaces in every facility we all use in our everyday lives. Overall the importance of deployment of our products is to prevent these types of issues by being ahead of the curve to start with, even though one of the many types of germs are not impacted. We aim to target those ongoing and systemic issues.


People are suddenly getting more convinced that prevention is a better approach to germs than epidemic spread which is very aligned with our products continuous approach to germ control.


Vital Vio doesn’t have a Coronavirus claim at this point but pūr-led™ powered by Vital Vio products do impact a significant amount of everyday germs that impact us all very frequently on a more regular basis.

Addressing Coronavirus Supply Chain Disruption Concerns

By | News | No Comments
With many concerns about Coronavirus and the potential effects its spread may have on PMC Lighting’s ability to deliver product, we would like to remind everyone that PMC Lighting is a true US producing manufacturer. We use local vendors for the vast majority of our components and purchase our raw materials, aluminum, and steel, from domestic suppliers. All of our designs are engineered, fabricated, assembled, packaged, and shipped from North America.
With any modern LED-based lighting system, the critical components are LED Drivers and LED Boards. We are happy to say that our major suppliers of LED drivers and LED boards assemble these in the USA or Mexico. Our distributors for these items stock very large quantities of all the models we use. Our local manufacturers also heavily stock components in their manufacturing facilities in the USA or Mexico and many also primarily source components outside of China.
While PMC and our critical component suppliers are not immediately affected by issues in China, if there is a lengthy disruption in the supply chain such that driver and board manufacturers cannot get components that go into these critical items, then we could see a lengthening of lead times after all distributor and manufacturer stocks are depleted. If conditions come to that point, it would be an issue that would affect every fixture manufacturer globally, not just PMC. We do maintain alternate sources for critical components and would leverage these to provide fixtures in a timely manner should there be a time when the supply chain for these components tightens.
No one really can predict the future with 100% accuracy when it comes to times such as these. You can be assured that no matter what business conditions exist, PMC Lighting will do everything within our power to provide our customers with timely delivery of the products they need. If any customer has concerns about getting fixtures for their projects from PMC Lighting we recommend talking with us about your needs early.
As always we thank you for your support. Together we will work through whatever world situations come about.
