EGL Company, Inc., a New Jersey based manufacturer of specialty lighting products serving the neon sign and custom lighting industry is proud to announce the appointment of John Tulk as head phosphor and coatings engineer. At EGL John will focus on developing new coatings and colors that offer more lumens per watt than traditional neon colors, as well as perfecting EGL's neon phosphor and coatings for the P.O.P and neon signage industry. John's background at Sylvania, Osram Lighting, and Voltarc Technologies, Inc. make him the perfect match to the unique challenges he will face at EGL.
"We are pleased to have John on our team. His distinctive work experiences and knowledge of phosphors, coatings, and fluorescent and neon lamp making is an ideal fit with EGL's position as the world leader of custom color neon lighting products" said Harold Cortese, President and CEO of EGL Company, Inc.
John's professional career started at Sylvania's Chemical and Metallurgical Plant in Towanda, PA working in their phosphor group. At Sylvania's Towanda facility and their fluorescent lamp plant in Massachusetts John gained extensive knowledge and expertise in phosphors and fluorescent lamp technology. In 2000, John left Sylvania to join Voltarc Technologies, Inc. to become their Coatings Engineering Manager where he held this position for eight years before joining EGL in July of 2008.
"I'm excited to be at EGL" said Mr. Tulk. "There are endless color possibilities with neon and fluorescent lighting that is unrivaled whether we are talking about LEDs, fiber optics, or any other light source. I look forward to applying my knowledge and experiences to help EGL remain as the world leader in custom colors as well as to help EGL distance itself from its competition."
