Southpaw’s strengths extend to all aspects of LED, including engineering, control room equipment and service.

California-based D3 LED has been around for over 14 years and markets a line of American-assembled LED products. D3 offerings range from fine-pitch indoor products, weather-resistant outdoor products, control room systems, proactive monitoring and reporting tools to detect and prevent outages and other patented LED solutions.
