I came across this and I think it's well worth re-posting. If this is not the definition of honor, I don't know what is. All I can say is....THAT...is true love for the ones you care about and THAT is what true friendship is about. All the best to Mark Haist and the Commercial NeonTanielian Family!
The Soap Opera continues. As predicted, Sloan (not the toilet/urinal manufacturer) fires N.Glantz & Son, borrows GE's boot, to give the boot. This was predicted back in April of this year when GE dumped N.Glantz & Son like an ugly girlfriend http://www.thesignsy...-dumps-nglantz/ This comes on the eve of SloanLED's release of "about to hit the market" new products. Since N.Glantz has a partnership with JT LED, they just can't be counted on for pushing and promoting Sloans new products. So now the rumor is, Sloan is going to Montroy. All in all, it just makes better business sense for N.Glantz to exile them all and make a better profit margin in this cut throat "budget LED" (which they lead) market that's going on right now, it's just one big race to see who can make it to the bottom first. If I had a horse in the race, which I don't this would be one race I'd suggest sitting out and watching only from the stands. After all, I thought the only reason why people watch NASCAR was for the big crashes.
On 2/16/2011 on N. Glantz's FaceBook page there was a question raised on their wall by a client or fan of theirs. They were asking if there was any sources they could go to to obtain information on benefits of energy savings using LEDs vs Neon in channel letters to show their clients. I pointed to some links here on some threads with various info. N.Glantz replied back pointing that person to Sloan LED's calculator. I then replied back after using the calculator that it was a pretty accurate compared to most that I've seen. I then set up a quick ROI calculations using the GW3 modules with neon on a set of 10 channel letters, and what the basic costs were, the ROI was something like 15 years or so, something like that it was long term. Letting the person know that using that particular module, it wouldn't benefit savings on energy annually because of the upfront cost. Now the post on their wall was deleted. That's not very nice. Was it something I said? Maybe if I would have plugged in JT LED's it would have stayed, but then we would get into a brightness issue as well. Some people just don't like the truth when it doesn't benefit them, what TRULY happened to standing behind what you sell. just because it was a higher cost vs neon for CL's doesn't mean it couldn't be used for something else in another application, or on a high rise building and such. This industry of ours, sometimes. How many more days till Vegas do we have? I need a beer.
I challenge one of the leading people in the sign industry that yesterday told me that this site is a joke and only 5 people post here! Help me prove them wrong - the little voice is huge in this industry! #1 post - Manuel Lynch - Las Vegas and New Zealand
