Mexican LED Firm Aims to Light Donald Trump’s Wall

Famously, President Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail in 2016 that he would build a wall on the US border and make Mexico pay for it. The Mexican government is not exactly sold on that arrangement, but this hasn’t stopped a small and enterprising Mexican LED firm from eyeing a potential deal. LED manufacturer Ecovelocity, based in the central Mexican city of Puebla, is aiming to supply cheap industrial LED lights to illuminate the wall, which, it is hoped, will prevent illegal immigration from Mexico. Ecovelocity imports most of its products from China and the firm is hoping to undercut the competition by providing energy efficient light at a cut-rate price. So far, Ecovelocity is the only Mexican registered company that has applied to work on the wall, however Mexico’s Cemex, one of the world’s largest cement producers, is thought to be mulling a potential bid. 640 companies have applied to work on the project, the majority of which are based in the United States, although firms from Spain, Germany, South Africa, Canada and the UK have also filed bids.
