Doug's News


July 2012

Hello Friends –

Last month we exhibited at the NEOCON show in Chicago and were very pleased by the response and the attendees. We displayed the new power and communications grommet we are calling EDP/2.0 for the moment. It received rave reviews as did the award-winning Lily Pad. Levity® was a task lamp of great interest that now is in production. The new casters and new trash liner colors were a big hit. All were well received. A good show!

Pikes Peak Hill Climb
As Angelica and I were getting ready to go to Colorado we received news that the event has been postponed due to the epic conditions and safety concerns related to the massive Waldo Canyon Fire near Colorado Springs. Our hearts go out to those who are affected and we hope the fires will be completely out soon.
