As we near the end of 2016, we’re getting excited to wrap up our biggest year yet! This year we’ve launched seven of our most innovative, user-friendly lights, been nationally and regionally recognized for our significant growth and celebrated our 10th anniversary. We’re sending a big thanks to all of our customers who helped us get to this point and looking forward to 2017.
Wireless Environment (makers of Mr Beams) made the Inc. 5000 and Crain’s 52 lists for the third and second time respectively. The Inc. 5000 list recognizes the fastest-growing companies in the United States; Crain’s 52 recognizes the fastest-growing companies in Northeast Ohio.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary on November 28. We’re thrilled to make our 10th year our biggest yet and continue to provide simple, affordable lighting solutions.
Mr Beams lights became available through Lowe’s stores and BestBuy.com.
Our patent portfolio grew to 25 issued and 13 pending patents for our products and technology.
Seven new products launched, which contain our most advanced features and technology:
-the MB720A Amber Stick Anywhere Light – an adaptation of our original and customer-favorite MB720 Stick Anywhere Light – provides amber light, which has been shown to be less disruptive to sleep than traditional white night lights.
-the MB990 UltraBright Ceiling Light provides 300 lumens of light (making it our brightest indoor light!) with a unique diffuser that adds to the light’s modern design and spreads the light for a wider coverage area.
-we took the customer favorite and best-selling MB360 LED Spotlight and made it better with the MB360XT Next Generation LED Spotlight. The MB360XT is brighter (200 lumens) with a bold new design and reflective face to create a wider coverage area.
-the MB3000 High Performance Security Light quickly became a customer favorite and even earned the #1 New Release in its category on Amazon.com. Its 500 lumens make it the brightest light in the Mr Beams line.
-the MBN3000 NetBright High Performance Security Light takes everything in the original MB3000 High Performance Security Light and adds NetBright technology, which allows networked lights to communicate with each other.
-the MB750 Stand Anywhere Light provides a new take on night lighting, providing 20 lumens in a convenient standing design for no-installation lighting.
-the MB970 Slim Safety Light combines the convenience of a ceiling light with the security of a spotlight. Its slim profile allows it to be used in small, cramped areas for automatic safety lighting.
How did we do in 2015?
