Tracoman was relaunched at LDI99, with Gerard Cohen as president and Marcel Fairbairn as vice president. Also, Nick Freed and Robert Mokry (both familiar names to the automated lighting industry) have been brought in to handle sales of the Coemar line in addition to Abstract Lighting of the UK, and from France, The Bubble outdoor enclosures and Mobil-Tech Stands.

Fairbairn says, "We are very excited to launch Tracoman--a new beginning for an old name in the automated lighting business. We have some great people involved, plus I have had nothing but respect for the progress Coemar has made in automated lighting. I applaud the efforts of The Obie Company in getting the product accepted thus far and look forward to the challenge of taking it to the next level." Obie, now Westsun America, continues as a Coemar dealer for Tracoman.
