The excitement of our customers is evident as we continue to see the acceleration of orders."

The Governor's residence has begun converting its lighting to high-efficiency, long-life LED technology to save energy and reduce maintenance costs and they chose LLF's LR6 product because of it has the highest energy efficiency of any product currently available and has a beautiful appearance.
According to Mike Fallon, LLF's Vice President of Sales, "We currently have 65 lighting sales agents across the United States and Canada, which represent over 300 distributors. We are particularly active in the specification community. Recent wins include high profile designs in major restaurant and hotel chains as well as commercial buildings, and schools that should drive our business into 2008 and beyond. World leading brand names and institutions including Sheraton, McDonalds, Roche Laboratories, and The Harvard Business School have purchased the LR6. Our lights have also been installed in a number of residential applications, including Governor Ted Strickland's mansion in Ohio and will soon be installed at the Chancellor's residence at the University of Arkansas. We have hundreds of sales & marketing associates presenting the LR6 every day. We are gaining traction at a remarkable rate. LLF is the green solution that delivers a very high quality of light while offering a compelling price value relationship.
