A Franklin company that provides lighting for broadcast towers has secured a contract with a large company that operates more than 1,000 towers.
Flash Technology provides LED and xenon lighting systems for tall structures like cell towers, wind turbines or airport infrastructure. Often, structures need the lighting to comply with Federal Aviation Administration requirements.
The new contract is with CTI Towers, based in North Carolina. It operates more than 1,000 towers and leases tower space to Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, along with broadcasters, utility companies, internet service providers and government entities.
The companies finalized the agreement in April at a conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“This agreement is an extension of our long-term partnership with Flash Technology,” CTI’s CEO Tony Peduto said, according to a press release.
Under the nationwide agreement, Flash will provide obstruction light installation, monitoring and maintenance services. The company monitors the operation of the lights at a centralized monitoring center.
