“We were very impressed by this distinguished group of landscape lighting pros and their thoughtful interest in our new product line of forward-thinking LED technologies,” said Shelley Wald, president of WAC Lighting. “Our experience in the landscape industry has been above and beyond everything we imagined it would be. This visit only fueled our passion for inventing more exciting products that will solve challenges they face daily in their work.”

"The homeowners are delighted with the wide offering of WAC luminaires, and the fact that the lumens can be increased or decreased to fit the homeowners taste," said Ric Sinclair, Hulihan Territory, Jacksonville, Fla. "In one case we are lighting a 150-year old massive Oak with seven Spots at full capacity. This Oak display is blowing away everyone who sees it. The owner told us that of the $2 million dollars he spent on this renovation, it is by far the best investment on the job.”
“Such a good experience and wonderful people," said Bob Odynski, Foegley Landscape Inc. "The owners, Shelley and Dirk, could not have been nicer people."
