ELTEC, in business for over 40 years, is known for programma-ble time clocks (NTC-17E). Over 10 years ago, ELTEC entered into solar powered systems support-ing the traffic industry. As appli-cations for solar power grew so has ELTEC’s product offering.
Some solar powered pedestrian crossings required supplemental lighting. One of ELTEC’s electrical engineers (PE) with experience in lighting applications worked with a major lighting manufacturer and designed a super bright 24 LED solar-powered fixture.

Solar power continues to grow in popularity and using solar energy is a mainstay for products created at Marshall’s Electrotechnics Corporation (ELTEC), 1310 Commerce St., which manufactures a variety of traffic systems.
“We have been working with solar for 20 years. In 2000, we probably sold 100 systems compared with the 600 sold this year,” said ELTEC President Bill Marshall.
ELTEC has been “green” before green was cool. We’ve been supplying solar powered systems to the traffic industry since the mid 1990’s.
For the past few years we’ve had voluntary recycling in the common/lunch area, recycling aluminum cans, plastic bottles/containers, magazines & catalogs, glass, and grocery bags.
Recently ELTEC initiated a companywide office and production floor recycling program. In addition to the above items, all cardboard boxes, shrink wrap, bubble wrap and other miscellaneous objects are collected in separate bins located in all offices and each production area of our 20,000 square foot facility.
The recycling program has reduced ELTEC’s landfill garbage collection by approximately 85% and is saving ELTEC over $1,000 a year in garbage fees. It pays to recycle in so many ways.
