Need a better lighting solution for your business? Visual Communications Company (VCC) is recognized as a pioneer in the optoelectronics industry developing today’s most innovative LED indication and illumination systems. VCC offers customized value-added services based upon the unique lighting design and complex assembly needs of customers’ products.
Listening can be illuminating. That’s why the VCC team starts each development assignment by talking through specific product performance objectives and custom LED engineering requirements with their customers.
VCC considers LED lighting to be crucial to the technology addressing the demand to move to more sustainable, energy efficient lighting solutions in a wide range of industries. LEDs are eco-friendly as the components are 95% recyclable. LEDs comply with Energy Star standards and requirements as they use anywhere from 30% to 120% less power, over fluorescent and incandescent bulbs respectively, and save 3000 times their own weight in greenhouse gases. LEDs typically have longer life cycles, up to 50 times that of other lighting options. This not only reduces replacement costs but also the maintenance costs and personnel associated with servicing the lighting circuitry.
VCC ‘s products are made with high quality LEDs for all of your smart indication and lighting applications. Whether you are developing an optical signaling circuit, data transmission design, backlighting set-up, control panel or any number of additional smart lighting designs, we have the LEDs, Litepipes™ and PCB components to make your design work.
And VCC has committed to offset 100% of its annual carbon footprint created by its business activities, by supporting the projects and mission of Carbonfund.org.
“We’ve built our business on excellent stakeholder relationships. In the new millennium, we believe that providing these groups the highest level of service includes making socially responsible and environmentally sound choices.” – Andrew Zanelli, VCC President.

As online shopping becomes the norm for businesses and consumers around the world, shopping-related carbon emissions are shifting from personal vehicles and public transit to modes of product shipment. While this shift may result in an overall reduction in “shopping emissions”, they aren’t being eliminated. Many environmentally-focused customers and businesses are growing savvy to this shift in greenhouse gas emission sources and are eager to find ways to reduce or neutralize product shipping emissions.
CarbonFree® Shipping Partner Verde Fulfillment USA, of Boise, Idaho, is taking the lead in fighting greenhouse gas emissions associated with product order fulfillment by embedding carbon emissions neutralization into their product shipping process.
Verde provides the full spectrum of product order fulfillment, e-commerce drop shipping, warehousing/inventory management, shipping logistics and accounting, and they’re doing this with a greener approach to neutralizing the resulting shipping emissions.
Verde’s fulfillment process is simple, and includes shipping products to their facility, handling order fulfillment, then shipping products directly to the customer. Each quarter, Verde calculates their total product shipment emissions and makes a donation to support Carbonfund.org’s carbon reduction projects, thereby neutralizing the emissions from all product shipments and ensuring CarbonFree® shipping.
And the folks at Verde Fulfillment practice what they preach through their own operation’s focus on environmental responsibility by:
- using 100% recycled paper for packing slips;
- purchasing green power from their local utility;
- running green electric powered forklifts;
- using brand new recycled boxes and recycled paper-tape to ship all products; and
- sending only electronic invoicing.
We’re proud to partner with Verde Fulfillment’s environmentally-sustainable shipping and warehousing services, featuring CarbonFree® shipping.
