And our eco-friendly reputation has resulted in being awarded contracts for a variety of challenging, prestigious projects we’re extremely honored to be part of. For example, one of our unique amber bulbs was employed along the Florida and Georgia coasts to circumvent spawning, protected sea turtles from becoming disoriented by bright lights glaring out over our beaches when they come ashore to lay their eggs.” In other examples, the Rotonde at Aruba International Airport has a magnificent display of international flags flying on illuminated flagpoles, and the U.S. Park Service lights their flagpoles along the Canadian border.
