“We’ve invested a great deal in the company and the brand during the last year,” said new Sea Gull Lighting president Matt Vollmer. “Part of the investment has been a comprehensive and effective overhaul in our product development process.”

Vollmer said the company has a larger pool of engineers and a new VP engineering.
