FLUOTEC was founded 20 Years ago
In the beginning, we were the ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS (OEM) for LOWEL Lighting
This Lowel Lighting company was founded by Mr Ross Lowel a lighting pioneer, was the inventor of the most famous location lighting kits that every filmmaker used in those times
Ross Lowell (July 10, 1926 – January 10, 2019 ) was an American inventor, photographer, cinematographer, lighting designer, author, and entrepreneur who changed the film production industry with two inventions: a widely used quick-clamp lighting mount system, and gaffer tape. He founded Lowel-Light, a manufacturer of highly portable lighting equipment used in TV, film and stage lighting, with 20 patents filed by Lowell. Lowell was the cinematographer for the Academy Award-winning short A Year Toward Tomorrow (1966), and he won an Academy Award for Technical Achievement in 1980 for his compact lighting system.
The same year, he was nominated for Best Short Film, Live Action for his 14-minute film Oh Brother, My Brother (1979), depicting two of his young children. In 1987
Lowell was awarded the John Grierson Gold Medal by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), "in recognition of his many achievements, inventions, and innovative developments in the field of lightweight lighting and of grip equipment."
