"Across the globe, applications for city beautification, architectural lighting, entertainment, traffic, and signaling, are increasingly in demand. Our position as a manufacturer of all colors allows us to support our customers with a portfolio that's efficient, delivers high light output, is extremely reliable, and is cost effective in lumens per Watt and lumens per dollar for a wide variety of solutions."
