Horticulture Lighting Sales Manager
This sales position is home based and will not require relocation to our main office.
The LED Horticulture Lighting industry is expected to grow from $4.8 billion in 2012 to $63.1 billion by 2020, registering a compound annual growth rate of 45%. LED lighting is quickly becoming the dominant light source in commercial and residential applications. The reasons are clear: LED lighting uses up to 80% less electricity than incandescent light bulbs, saving building owners significant money every month on utility costs, and greatly reducing harmful power plant emissions.
