TransGard is also the exclusive distributor of the high-tech Laser Bird Defense, which uses a concentrated beam of light to prevent birds from entering or roosting in electrical substations and other sites.
“We’re excited to gain Scott’s broad experience and passion for solving demanding customer requirements, building businesses, and establishing partnerships,” said Greg Freeman, TransGard’s CEO.
