LED Grocery Refrigeration Lighting Creates Success
A small to large business success story continues with new lighting technology that makes sense. Wawa is a privately held ?[b]209[/b]? year old company that began as an iron foundry in New Jersey in 1803. Toward the end of the 19th Century, owner George Wood took an interest in dairy farming and the family began a small processing plant in Wawa, PA, in 1902. The milk business was a huge success, due to its quality, cleanliness and the companies ?certified? process. As home delivery of milk declined in the early 1960s, Grahame Wood, George?s grandson, opened the first Wawa Food Market in 1964 as an outlet for dairy products. Today, Wawa operates more than 580 stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.
