I’m extremely proud of the operations team for expeditiously working towards this very important milestone,” remarked Lee Bonnar, Vice President of KingCast & King Luminaire Canada. “I thank our entire crew for their hard work and efforts. We look forward to building on this success, by expanding our capabilities in the days ahead.”
