Fewer SKUs, Cheaper Freight, Lower Overall Cost
A.L.P.’s newest post-top lighting innovation allows our model 401 Lineman™ top and cap to be used with our industry-leading model 425 Lindy® bottom, so you can add to the variety of your traditional street and area lighting while cutting costs and keeping SKUs to a minimum.
The secret is in the design of Lineman’s injection molded top and cap. Using a snap-fit feature, it is attached in the field without tools. The top and bottom optics are shipped separately, dramatically reducing freight costs up to 70 percent versus pre-assembled post tops and eliminating the need—and cost—of attaching clamp bands.
This interchangeable option combines the look and performance of the Lindy with the value of the Lineman, adding variety to your product offering with the most economical, environmentally friendly approach. Other new options include new black acrylic tops for some Lineman and Lindy configurations.
All Lindy and Lineman acrylic post tops come with a 10-year warranty against discoloration. Why wait when you can add variety and lower costs with a classic post-top aesthetic and superior performance?

In his new role as President and COO, Adam Mayse will have strategic and managerial responsibility for manufacturing operations, customer experience, corporate services, finance, sales, and marketing. Adam joined A.L.P. in 1997 and has held a variety of management positions in engineering, operations, and product management, as well as domestic and international sales. He has also worked in other technical industries outside of lighting and brings a fresh perspective to delivering value to A.L.P.’s OEM partners and customers.
As VP and Business Manager, Tom Barnes will have enterprise-wide responsibility for A.L.P.’s product development, marketing communications, design engineering, sales resource, and pricing functions. Tom has managed the company’s optical business unit since 2007 when A.L.P. acquired Spectrus, Inc., including the LexaLite® brand. He is a Certified Lighting Professional and holds four patents related to plastics in lighting.
“We congratulate Adam and Tom on their new positions,” said Steve Brown, A.L.P.’s CEO. “They have extensive knowledge of the lighting industry and enduring relationships with our customers. They are uniquely qualified to succeed in their expanded roles, and to move our customer-focused strategy forward.”
After the transition, Steve Brown will remain as CEO and David Brown, former COO, will be stepping away from day-to-day involvement after 46 years of service to the company. David will be an active member of A.L.P.’s Board of Directors, using his extensive experience to support budgeting, major projects, and strategic planning initiatives.

(Niles, IL) A.L.P.® has expanded our industry-leading optical silicone molding capabilities by purchasing molding machines and other key assets from Sur-Seal LLC. The equipment is installed in the Charlevoix, MI facility and is operational. As a result, A.L.P. will have six presses capable of molding Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) in Charlevoix and has plans to expand this technology to our Monterrey, MX facility in fiscal year 2023. Sur-Seal, in turn, will turn their focus to the core business of producing silicone gaskets.
“A.L.P. sees a great future in optical silicone molding for LED outdoor, industrial and automotive lighting applications,” states Tom Barnes, Vice President and Business Unit Manager. “The opportunity to cooperate with Sur-Seal in this equipment transfer, as they transition out of LSR optics, puts A.L.P. in a strong position to fulfill that emerging demand,” he adds.
A.L.P.’s tie-barless molding machines have advanced production features, including a built-in conveyor, ERC robot, Electro Servo injection, and coining technology. We can currently mold silicone parts up to 200 square inches. This precision silicone equipment, combined with our tooling and optical engineering expertise, makes A.L.P. a superior business partner to quickly take projects from concept to production.

(Niles, IL) A.L.P. is pleased to announce the introduction of the Lineman™, a new utility-grade post-top globe. Designed to illuminate walkways, parks, and roadways, the Lineman features a nostalgic, turn-of-the-century shape with modern material choices for an economical alternative to other performance globes.
It is versatile, attractive, and affordable. The Lineman features a configurable top so that the appearance can be customized for any application. In addition, multiple finished shapes can be created by adding cap or finial options.
This new utility-grade post-top is easy to install and maintain. The innovative locking design allows the top and bottom to be efficiently shipped and then permanently field assembled with no tools. Manufactured in acrylic for longevity without discoloration, the Lineman is compatible with LED lamp sources and poles with a height of 10’ to 20’.
The Lineman is the latest addition to the 400 Series injection molded post-tops from the A.L.P. LexaLite brand. It can be shipped economically in two or three pieces. In addition, it has the same maximum diameter (15.9”) as A.L.P.’s popular The Lindy® refractor, offering the potential for component sharing.
For OEM and retrofit applications, A.L.P.’s traditionally styled Lineman post-top globe is a less expensive alternative to other performance optics that does not compromise on the durability and versatility integral to the 400 Series.
