Happy Holidays from CantoUSA!

Amanda Moon - Public Relations


December 19, 2018

Thank you to our customers for another excellent year! We’ve enjoyed working with you in 2018, and we’re looking forward to what 2019 will bring. We wish you all a happy holiday season and new year! Here’s what a few of our employees will be doing this year.


Mike Claypool, VP of Production

Every year, we head to Memphis, TN, where my wife and parents live, and spend Christmas there with extended family. I’m pretty sure that my tradition has become swearing every year that I will never travel to Memphis for this again. My goals for 2019 are to improve time and cost-saving measures through an emphasis on organization and a continued focus on keeping quality control front and center in the minds of those I supervise. Also, to continue bringing in the right set of talented individuals to accomplish the daily manufacturing processes as we continue to grow. I am excited about the new products coming in 2019, especially seeing them move from concept to reality.


Shawn Harmon, Eastern Sales Manager

We usually spend Christmas and New Year’s at home, and do a bunch of cooking and baking for having company over. We like to chill at home and enjoy family time. We don’t have any really unique traditions, although our Elf on a Shelf sets the bar high for creativity leading up to Christmas. My goal for 2019 is to conquer the world of lighting, one sale at a time!


John Luhrs, General Manager

We’ll be staying home with the family this year, relaxing. My traditions are reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas to everyone, and also ending up in the doghouse for something each year. For 2019, I plan to smile more.


Wandra Luhrs, CFO/COO

I’m excited to have all the kids home from Christmas. Joining our high school son, we have our oldest daughter and son-in-law coming from out of state, and our other daughter will be home from college. One tradition we have is all getting new pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve. My goal for 2019 is to keep growing the CantoUSA team with the best employees, getting feedback from our customers on our products, and keep coming out with the most innovative lighting products in the market.


Brian Moon, VP of Product Development

This is our daughter’s first Christmas, so it’s been fun introducing her to the Christmas tree, Santa, and holiday music. We’ll be doing the rounds in both South Carolina and Virginia with family time. Typically, we like to watch Christmas Vacation each year. We haven’t gotten to yet, but it’s coming. My overall goal for 2019 is to make it brighter!
