"A L S of North Carolina, Inc / American Lighting and Signalization has had the privilege of working with Wenlight Fiber. Wenlight is one of our preferred vendors; the quality of their work speaks for itself.
In one occasion, WENlight accepted a complicated fiber project that had issues (undocumented, unterminated, and Fiber changing color) they excelled in trouble shooting, repair and documenting the project. They received excellent commendations from our management and the Department of Transportation. I look to WENlight with our fiber needs."
