CD/m2 LIGHTWORKS Corp announces today that we have entered into an agreement with Bernard + Associates to create a new LIGHTWORKS Controls marketing division by merging the recognized expertise, reputation and product lines of Bernard & Associates in to LIGHTWORKS.

The agreement will see David Rawlings join the LIGHTWORKS management team as Controls Specialist and Product Manager. “Lighting Controls are becoming more important to projects as we look at ways of saving energy and being more practical in our use of artificial light.  The adoption of LEDs for general illumination has added another dimension to lighting controls, along with the need to understand the specific control requirements demanded by new LED technologies. The association with LIGHTWORKS will ensure that the controls meet the requirements of both the luminaire systems and the end users. I look forward to working with all our existing Bernard & Associates customers under the LIGHTWORKS’ banner and assisting current LIGHTWORKS’ clients with their lighting control needs”  stated David Rawlings   

 “This agreement will enable LIGHTWORKS to extend our recognized market position as a leader in intelligent LED and architectural lighting systems to the broader lighting controls and intelligent building markets that are rapidly expanding in the drive towards energy saving and sustainability. David brings to LIGHTWORKS over 25 years of industry experience and a recognized reputation for effectively developing, selling and delivering specialty lighting and control solutions to customers throughout BC and Canada” stated Darren Luce, President and Managing Director of CD/m2 LIGHTWORKS Corp.

The integration of Bernard & Associates’ sales and operations into LIGHTWORKS is underway and will be complete in February. We will ensure a seamless transition for all of our customers.
