Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) announced the release of its newest long-lasting, high quality, energy-efficient lamps primarily for commercial use. These newly updated LED lamps are designed to meet Energy Star standards and are currently undergoing testing for final certification. They include enhancements such as dimming capabilities and a broad range of color temperatures and beam angles.

“We are committed to producing high-quality products that deliver the best light quality possible,” said Masao Omori, Director, LED Lighting. “We have pushed the envelope to create a portfolio of lamps that exceed customers’ expectations. Lighting is ingrained within our corporate culture, and our new line of LED products for the US market is simply an extension of that historic lineage.”

The new line of lamps, called E-core, includes a total of 45 products. Advancements include:

  • All lamps are designed to meet Energy Star standards
  • Five-year warranty provided on all lamp types
  • All lamps are dimmable
  • All lamps are UL-approved
  • All lamp shapes comply with ANSI C78.24-2001 & ANSI C78.21.2003 standards
  • Excellent lumen output for a 3000K PAR30 at 800 lumens
  • Excellent lumen output for a 3000K PAR38 at 1000 lumens

Peter DallePezze, Director of Marketing and Product Development, stated, “Toshiba will continue to create superior replacement options for incandescent halogen, metal-halide, and CFL lighting. LED lighting is essentially the marriage of computer technology and lighting. No other company is better positioned to provide the latest in LED lighting solutions than Toshiba – the same company who brought laptop computers to the mass market and has over 120 years of lighting experience.”

Toshiba abandoned production of incandescent lamps in March 2010, demonstrating the company’s commitment to helping make LED technology the future of lighting. Toshiba is the first major lighting manufacturer to proactively discontinue the production of incandescent lamps.

Toshiba unveiled its first generation of LED lighting products for the U.S. market at LIGHTFAIR International in May 2010. Toshiba will make additional announcements throughout 2011 about an ever-expanding selection of long-lasting LED lighting solutions that provide superior light intensity and color quality for both commercial and consumer applications.

BANK OF INDIA, SME RATING AGENCY SIGN MOU this web site bank of india

Hindustan Times (New Delhi, India) November 11, 2005 MUMBAI, India, Nov. 11 — SME Rating Agency of India Limited issued the following press release:

Bank of India and SME Rating Agency of India Ltd. (SMERA), have on November 11, 2005 formally executed an MoU for extending their co-operation in the arena of financing of SME sector. This MoU is a comprehensive arrangement which seeks to leverage the strengths of rating services of SMERA and financial services from Bank of India. It is expected that an external credit rating would assist Bank of India in arriving at the risk premium leviable on the pricing to a constituent and make it attractive. Bank of India is proactively disposed towards this sector in the matter of pricing. Signing of this MoU is expected to enhance credit deployment to the SME segment.

SME sector is the growth engine and key driver of Indian economy and their contribution to production, generation of employment and exports is well known. With the emerging conducive environment, the SME sector is expected to play a dominant role in various capacities including as vendor base for large corporates who are setting up sourcing bases in India.

This MoU would pave the way for SMERA in extending its services as an independent third party assessment of the overall condition of the SMEs which takes into account the financial position and several qualitative factors that have a bearing on the credit worthiness of SMEs. SMERA and Bank of India would strive to work towards conducting awareness and popularize each other’s products through workshops/seminars conducted by SMERA. SMERA and Bank of India, depending upon requirements, may exchange information as also conduct and sponsor joint cluster studies focused upon SMEs for wider dissemination among the bankers, SME sector units, policy makers and other stakeholders. this web site bank of india

While, SMERA is the first and only dedicated rating agency for SME Sector in India, Bank of India is one of the leaders in financing of SMEs in the country. Inaugurated on September 5, 2005, SMERA has since completed rating of about 50 SMEs. SMERA is a joint initiative of SIDBI, Dun & Bradstreet, CIBIL and several leading public and private sector banks. Bank of India has a 4% stake in this venture.

Earlier in June 2005, Bank of India and SIDBI entered into an MoU, for a strategic alliance, under which joint financing is envisaged to SME constituents at 12 centres across the country covering 58 clusters amongst the 149 clusters identified by SIDBI. Under this arrangement, term loans would be either financed jointly by both the institutions or solely by SIDBI with working capital being exclusively financed by the bank at competitive rates.
