LED3’s Prospects Shine Brightly in Year Ahead

CANFIELD, Ohio — Prospects for LED3 appear brighter than ever this year, as the expanding LED, or light-emitting diode, panel market takes its staff across the country with new clients and exciting projects.

“2018 was a year of continued growth and expansion,” says Clare Neff, chief marketing officer. “By adding jobs and clientele, LED3 is focused on increasing its reputation nationally as well as locally in 2019.”

The woman- and veteran-owned company specializes in high-resolution LED display installations. LED3 also provides in-house repairs and service, stocked parts and steel structures for fixed installations.

LED3 technicians last year spent 65% of their time on the road working on several major projects, Neff says.

The third installation for the Visitors Center at the U.S. Capitol was completed early in the year and plans were developed for the next Holocaust Museum in Dallas. The company’s technicians installed tiles on traveling displays for both Nintendo and Southwest Airlines, while political rallies kept the mobile screens busy across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and Alabama.

And company representatives made several trips to China to inspect products made there and shipped to LED3.

While the national market is strong, LED3 expects more establishments in the Mahoning Valley, such as restaurants and churches, will begin using digital signs to display their messages, Neff says.

To meet this demand, the company has hired a local sales representative focusing on new signage for clients and helping upgrade existing panels with higher resolution displays. The company also expanded its managerial and technical staff last year, she says.

“The challenge is to aggressively research and stay ahead of this rapidly evolving industry,” Neff says.
