Victoria, British Columbia, Canada - Monday, July 30, 2007 - Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) announced today that its LED Sign Group has received an order through an authorized distributor to supply more than $500,000 in LED edge-lit signs to a major North American consumer electronics company. These customized illuminated point-of-purchase signs will be installed at retail locations throughout the United States.
After evaluating a number of signage alternatives, the communications company chose the contemporary look and ultra-slim profile of Carmanah's LED edge-lit signs to identify its authorized dealers. Key performance benefits including a 10 year LED lamp life, zero maintenance and energy-efficient 12-volt operation also factored into the decision to use Carmanah's sign technology.
Carmanah's LED Sign Group has been designing and manufacturing energy-efficient, LED edge-lit signs for more than 10 years using an innovative combination of ultra-bright LEDs and proprietary edge-lighting technology. Using state-of-the-art manufacturing and production procedures, Carmanah can illuminate virtually any logo or design with exceptionally bright, crisp and eye-catching LED output. The result is a unique marketing tool that can create additional awareneness for any company brand, product, or service.
The LED edge-lit signs designed and manufactured for this particular customer also feature Carmanah's exclusive EvenLit™ acrylic sheet - a unique cell-cast acrylic product that is an ideal medium for accurately reproducing the customer's complex and colourful logo in accordance with corporate identity guidelines.
