Tinton Falls, NJ, United States, 2010/06/14 - Cooper Electric Supply Co., a subsidiary of Sonepar USA and leading provider of electrical supplies serving New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, has supplied the lighting for the new Meadowlands Stadium, through their Commercial Lighting team.
The Stadium, located in East Rutherford, NJ, host to Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014, is home to the NY Giants and NY Jets. The stadium is designed to accommodate 82,500 spectators with parking for 27,500 vehicles. It covers 2.1 million square feet and is designed with fans in mind, with over 800 concessions and its own rail line.
Cooper Electric provided all lighting for the stadium - from interior, site, and suite, to field lighting. In partnering with the leading manufacturers in lighting, Cooper Electric was able to deliver the most up to date, energy efficient, lighting solutions for the stadium. “This entire project was a complete team effort from start to finish. It was a great opportunity for all involved.” said Joe Tobia, Sales Account Executive, Cooper Electric Supply.
Cooper Electric’s Commercial Lighting team was also involved 30 years ago with providing the lighting to the original stadium. “Lighting Technology has come a long way since Cooper was involved in lighting the original stadium," said Sal Locicero, Vice President, Cooper Electric Commercial Lighting Department. "It was exciting to be part of the first project, and even more exciting to part of the team for the second project.”
