Thanks Spencer, Thanks Mark; When i read your messages i see we speak all the same languages, we have all the same problems in this hard situation for the neon world. The biggist problem here in Switzerland is not what the signs companys would like to sell, the problem is that the LED manufacturing companys like; Osram, Philipps and specially Tridonic Atco, are bombarding our big coustommers like; Petrol companys, Car companys, big supermarket chains, Architects, Design Studios.. with an exagerating propaganda what far away is from the reality for example: LED safe power,ecologic,unbrekable etc. So when we sell a sign, is the coustumer who said he would like LED in his Sign because he have heard all these nice properties of LED.
My Oppinion is; LED is sure a complement to the sign industrie, almost we can say this now, with the last generation of LED. But i am sure that LED is still in a developpment stadion, nobody can say exactly how a outdoor sign looks like after 10 years, so i find it very sad that this LED manufactures what have 0 experience in Signage promises thinks what they really d'ont
know. We become here also problems with our provider for glass,electodes,Transformer... they sell less material, and the prices for us comming up, if we order material we have to wait longtime because they have a smaller stock. I d'ont want to appear negative but the times are hard,i think for the future when the "Fashion" LED is finish, the production of neon will encrease again, but LED will take anyway a piece of the market.
