Negotiations have been completed which will allow Hollywood, FL-based Tracoman to take over as the new North American distributor for Coemar of Italy. Parties from Tracoman, The Obie Company (former Coemar rep), and Coemar have agreed to terms; Westsun, The Obie Company's parent company, and Obie will continue to support the Coemar line as dealers for Tracoman.

Tracoman has been recently reformed to include Gerard Cohen as president and Marcel Fairbairn as vice president. In addition, Nick Freed and Robert Mokry will handle sales of the Coemar line and Abstract Lighting products. Tracoman also handles Bubble outdoor enclosures and Mobiltech Stands from France.

The move is "a new beginning for an old name in the automated lighting business," says Fairbairn, "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."
