Mr. Joseph Frey and IPA-D.com
Joe Frey has been around the lighting industry for over 21 years and spent time in various engineernig capacities, application design and sales for several manufacturers. Joe won the prestigious Waterbury Illumination Design Award through the Indiana Chapter of the Illumination Engineering Society for the lighting design of the Indiana State Capitol exterior Façade and has served on the IES Sports Lighting committee.
In 2010 Joe took the giant step of aligning all of his past experience behind his new design firm titled “Independent Photometric Application and Design” or IPA-D.com. The mission of the firm is to provide lighting design services to small or startup lighting manufacturers, sales representatives or anyone in need of experience and expertise though unable to justify the expense on a permanent basis.
The firm has gained a successful foothold in this challenging economy and is on the verge of expansion. The addition of a second AGi32 license will allow Joe to add an employee and hopefully grow his business to new proportions.
