When safety depends on light, the U.S. Armed Forces depend on Cyalume, the manufacturer and supplier of ChemLight®, the go-to light stick that provides Illumination for tactical operations. But what happens if your supply chain is threatened. What do you do in the middle of a global pandemic?

During the pandemic, Cyalume continued producing 70,000 light sticks on one 8-hour shift, maintaining volume while working safely and efficiently. What’s it all about? According to Joe Longo, Director of Engineering & Production Operations for Cyalume, “We don’t let people down.” The same can be said about AGR. In fact, the machinery Cyalume relies on is the original equipment that AGR designed and built 50 years ago. According to Mr. Longo, “This machine kicks butt. It’s bomb proof.”

What does it take to work together for five decades? We collaborate with the customer and trade knowledge. At our core, we solve problems. But not just at the beginning. We stay in touch, re-assessing your needs, and always ready to help. At AGR, we think it’s better to earn your trust. And only people can do that.
