The proposal development and review process involved numerous Signify personnel, including plant specialists from both Canada and the Netherlands, to calculate the anticipated yield increases. Its application engineers adapted and evaluated several lighting designs, while the in-country sales team collaborated to provide investment and payback calculations.
Ray Price, Sunterra Group President, said, “We are happy that Signify walked us through the process of evaluating multiple lighting designs and helped us with payback calculations. Their guidance and support through this long process ensured us that we selected the proper lighting solution for our business. We are excited to be working with Signify.”
