I hope this message finds everyone well and in the Holiday spirit. As is our usual custom we at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus would like to take a moment to thank all of our customers and partners for a prosperous year in 2014. Your loyalty and trust in us allowed OLP of Columbus to reach new levels of success.
We designed and completed many new installations as well as redesigns for existing clients this year. A number of our customers are deciding rather than move or build new to stay put and enhance their outdoor living spaces with pools, patios, decks and even outdoor kitchens. All of these certainly can be tastefully and professionally lit for enjoyment long into the evening.
As far as trends within the industry itself, LED of course is the main driver for new installs. Over 75% of our projects are now LED. With the 80% reduction in energy consumption and 10 times greater bulb life than traditional Quartz halogen systems the advantages of LED outweigh the slightly higher cost. Many with older systems are having us convert their lighting installations to LED without having to purchase all new fixtures.
We are also introducing a new product/service in 2015. As most of you know OLP of Columbus is part of a 50 location franchise operation. The nation’s largest and oldest company dedicated to landscape and architectural lighting. Our parent company is always searching for additional ways to enhance your outdoor living areas. Shortly after the New Year we will be offering an outdoor furniture line called “Casuwel”. More news and info will follow shortly on this exciting new offering from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives.
There will also be a series of new fixtures available from our exclusive manufacturer located in Nashville. I expect there will be innovations in LED as well as timing devices such as astrological clocks. One thing that won’t change is the quality of our products. We have been making the most reliable well made products in our own facility since 1995.
In conjunction with all the new products and our growth, a new staff member joined us in early 2014. Matt Baker came on board as Project Manager for day to day operations assisting with installations as well as design and sales/marketing.
In 2015 OLP of Columbus will be celebrating our 10th anniversary of providing the highest quality landscape lighting products and services in the Columbus metro area. Again, we want to sincerely thank all of our clients for entrusting us to exceed their expectations. I look forward to the New Year and wish everyone a safe wonderful Holiday with family and friends.
