"Our first quarter under the lower cost Asian supply chain is evident as our product cost decreased 60%," said Travis Jones, President & CEO.
"We saw LED lamp sales increase 192.6% compared to Q4 2013 as a result of our new Lumenova™ brand and commercial market strategy. Our Regional Sales Directors have made great progress training and developing the new North American independent sales agency channel we've hired.
