Cast Aluminum Luminaires
Eleek offers energy-efficient interior and exterior luminaires cast from 100% post-consumer recycled aluminum sourced from a nearby building material reuse center. The company melts this aluminum scrap directly into products, in contrast with conventional recycling where scrap is melted into pellets before being remelted into products. All of Eleek's manufacturing is in Portland, with 80% of its supplies and materials coming from within 50 miles of its facility.
