Steps to build the business: Global TTL manufactures industrial lighting products under private labels for other companies that utilize the EnviroLux LED proprietary technology. The company is establishing national sales channels through independent lighting representatives and distributors. It expanded into the global market this year, with new sales channels into Mexico and Panama. Global TTL says it is bringing significant manufacturing of quality lighting products back to the United States, while also exporting our more energy-efficient lighting products to other countries.
Greatest challenge: The greatest challenge at this time is the lengthy certification processes that are required for UL and DLC to launch each individual product, Lisa Littleton said.
What's ahead: In the next six to eight months, Global TTL/EnviroLux LED brand will be launching over 20 new products. Currently the company is selling and producing over 500 units per month, with projections for sales to top 1,000 per month by December.
