Carmanah Supplies Lighted Beverage Tubs to Major US Beverage Distributor

Tuesday, April 24, 2007


Carmanah's LED Signs Group has been contracted by a leading US beverage distributor to supply an additional 700 lighted beverage tubs. This order follows an initial order for a full range of LED edge-lit promotional signage solutions in October 2006, including write on boards, back bar point-of-purchase (POP) signage and an initial order of the lighted beverage tubs. The lighted beverage tubs are illuminated using Carmanah's innovative LED edge-lit technology and will be used to showcase a major brand of imported beer in bars and nightclubs throughout the United States.
