Jim’s Showroom Project


Jim, as the Fleet Division Coordinator, doesn’t have a lot of spare time on his hands while he’s on the clock. Even so, he’s taken on a pretty cool project that’s going to (excuse me) really brighten up the showroom.

The project has been in the works (time allowing) for a few weeks after a conversation with Rick about making a display for the company’s commercial customers. Jim says the completion date is still TBD ’cause his “spare time” has been non-existent lately.

You can see from the image above what’s been completed so far. What’s coming next? Jim plans on adding more scene and off-road lighting, amber lightbars, and other light types with commercial and professional application. Though amber will be chosen for the display, red, blue, and white are available from our vendors as well.

The display is intended for our walk-in customers. Rick and Jim think for a lot of folks it’s easier to make a buying decision after being able to spend some hands-on time with a product. The idea is that once a customer checks out available lighting and makes a choice, they can grab one of whatever off the shelf and have it installed that day, getting back on the road in under an hour (in most cases).

When finished, customers will be able to test and select from Whelen, Strobe&More, and Rigid Industries lighting products.

(I personally think there ought to be at least one siren on the display … what’s the sense of having a flashing light without the sound you know goes along with it?)

We’ll keep track on Jim’s progress and left you know when it’s done!
