Alameda, California – February 15, 2018 – Heliotrope Technologies Inc, has announced that Mr. Luigi Fusi has joined the management team in the position of the Executive Director of Sales.

“Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to witness a number of industry transformation events where the right technology at the right time and at the right price can completely change the marketplace. Today’s glass industry is primed for a transformation of this magnitude. Traditional window shades used to control natural light cannot keep up with smart lighting management systems’ requirements in the modern buildings. What the market needs is a “dimmer switch” for natural light. I think the stars are aligning for the smart glass products.” says Mr. Fusi. “as a sales professional I can see that the market is ready. What it needs is a technology that satisfies two critical conditions: it must look good and it must be affordable. I believe Heliotrope has the winning combination.”
Heliotrope’s first-generation product offering is well positioned to capitalize on the two critical advantages of its proprietary NanoEC™ smart glass technology: industry’s best manufacturing cost structure and aesthetics. The low-cost fabrication process gives the company a critical edge when it comes to reaching the mass market demand inflection point long sought after by the industry. At the same time, Heliotrope’s unique ability to ensure a neutral grey color of a smart glass window is critical to securing a must-have architectural and interior design acceptance of the product.
“Smart glass technology has the potential to extend and grow traditional window manufacturing into a completely different vertical market – smart lighting and smart light management. I have experienced a revolution of this sorts first hand while on the cutting edge of things with Cisco during the internet transformation of the telecom industry. I believe we have a similar opportunity at Heliotrope in the glass & window manufacturing space.” – adds Mr. Fusi.
Headquartered in Alameda, California, Heliotrope designs and manufactures smart glass products for architectural, automotive, and transit applications. Powered by their proprietary colloidal nanocrystal technology, Heliotrope’s products set a new market standard for smart glass aesthetics, functionality and affordability.
