Testimonials

"I have been at CoLinx for the last three facility wide lighting update projects. Based on previous experiences I was very apprehensive as to what to expect from the installation crew. Much to my surprise, they left each area as they entered them and never interfered with our production teams."
"We have had nothing but good experiences with Helios. No complaints. We are pleased with the look and the staff is thrilled with the added visibility across the facility."
"I feel safe entering and exiting every isle now”. This is obviously a result of the foot candle increase from an average of ~7 to an average of ~40 across the facility."
