Michael Andel established Gulf Coast LED Lighting, LLC in 2010 and partnered with Don Richards in early 2011 to bring green, energy saving solutions to area businesses and residences. It is their mission to lower their clients' building operation costs by 50 - 80% through the use of LED technology. Known for his integrity and problem solving abilities, Mr. Andel assumes the responsibility for overseeing the company's accounting, management and marketing concerns. He enjoys educating clients about the advantages of solid state LED lighting and proudly recalls re-lamping a Harley-Davidson dealership as well as The Capital Trust Agency.

He then partnered with Don Richards, another retired member of the military, who also had 25 years of experience in the technology field with AT&T and NCR.
"Don and I are saving Gulf Coast businesses thousands of dollars in energy and maintenance costs," said Mr. Andel, "and hospitals, commercial businesses, and government projects that upgrade to our Superior LEDs will experience a remarkably quick return on their investment. By dealing directly with the manufacturer, we provide our customers with the highest quality LED lighting products available today at a very affordable price."
Mr. Andel earned a Bachelor of Science in aviation management and professional aeronautics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and an Associate Degree of Business at Fayetteville State University.
