SECRET TO SUCCESS: “Not only is our philosophy to do the right thing, but to make sure we do it with a passion, to make every day better than the day before – a cleaner and brighter future for our children.”

WHY WESTCHESTER: “It is the heart of the world. We have access to everything while maintaining the intimacy of a small-town feel and the diversity that nature has to offer.” 

FIRST STEPS: “We stepped up to an opportunity by fulfilling the needs of a new emerging industry, by providing skilled, knowledgeable and talented energy conservation implementers.”

REWARDING MOMENT: “Being known as the ‘doers’ of the industry and always being called in on very high-profile projects [such as installing outside facade lighting for the Empire State Building] because of our work ethic.”  

WHAT’S NEXT: “With the deployment of my patented wireless lighting control (Artemis Automation’s C-IT device), it is our goal to expand Candela Systems to an international electrical/lighting energy conservation service company and grow our employees from 45 to over 225 by 2015.” www.candelasystems.com
