“Mary Lu designed and fabricated over 50 42″ high custom antique brass fixtures (close to a $200,000.00 contract) for our St. Croix project. She was able to save our company over $40,000.00 and at least 6 weeks in time as compared to going through a lighting house. The client was very happy with quality of the fixtures. We where very happy with the professionalism of Mary Lu’s company. I will be using Mary Lu again on other high-end projects in the future and I highly recommend anyone else to do the same.”

I respect her business practice and whatever business suggestions she has given me. I believe Mary Lu is one of two mentors I’ve aspired to be. She is smart, organized and gets the job done. Her creativity, warm personality and extensive lighting knowledge has made her a successful business woman. Mary Lu was a pleasure to work for.”
