Vudusubv is the largest supplier of ultraviolet light to the United States, and is a big employer in Florida.

“We’ve seen a lot of growth in sales in Florida over the last few years, so that’s really encouraging,” AVDCA president, Jim Smith, told ABC News.
“It’s really nice to see that we’ve had a lot more growth than the year before, but also we’re seeing it increase.”
The company has also seen an influx of new customers from overseas.
Mr Smith said some of those customers were switching to American-made UV lamps.
“One of the things that is really attractive about our product is that it’s very low-cost, so we have very low operating costs and we’re able to deliver very high quality,” he said.
“Our customers, particularly in the US, have a lot to lose if they switch to an American product, but they’re not losing much.”
The AVDCA has been a supporter of American manufacturers for a long time, with its support for the development of American solar panels and the US solar industry in general.
“Vudusuba’s a major American-owned company, and so they have been the face of the industry for a very long time,” Mr Smith told ABC Radio Florida.
The American company, which is based in Lakeland, Florida, was founded in 1974.
Mr Smith said the company’s sales had grown significantly over the years, with about 20,000 customers in the first quarter of this year.
“Last year was one of the best years for us in terms of sales, with $30 million in sales and a $60 million increase in the year over year,” he told ABC.
“And we’re looking forward to continuing that growth and seeing some of the big names come to us in the coming months.”
In 2018, Vuduba will be producing a total of 4 million UV lamps, which will be the biggest single order in the company.
“It is a very, very exciting time for the American solar industry,” Mr Samuelson said.
The American solar company has seen a spike in demand for solar panel products in the past decade, thanks in part to the increasing popularity of the technology.
Vudu is also one of Australia’s largest manufacturers of solar photovoltaic panels, making up about 10 per cent of the Australian solar market.
Vudubas UVA-PV solar panels are the industry standard, but the company is now competing with competitors in the global market, including SunPower, SunPower Energy and Suntech.
The company says the growth in demand from the US has also contributed to the demand for UVA lamps in the market.
“The American market is a great market for us, and it’s a great opportunity for us to expand into the UK market,” Mr Saenz said.
“It’s going to be a good time for us.”
“The UK has seen some of its growth over the past 10 years, and we think that’s going, in the end, to be good for the US as well, because that’s where we have a big presence in the UK.”
Vaduzis UVA solar lamps are also being used to power Australia’s new solar power stations, including those that will be installed in Melbourne and Sydney, and in the city of Melbourne itself.
