Long-time Vantage Dealer Wins Harley-Davidson


Harrisburg, PA, March 16, 2009 - Rick Horne, owner of Lighting & Control Partners in Sarasota, Fla., was the lucky winner of a 2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL883 raffled off by Vantage last Friday, March 13th.  The raffle took place the final day of EHX Spring in Orlando, Fla.  


Horne, a Vantage dealer for 14 years, received 10 tickets by attending a training session at the show.  "It just blew me away, I never expected to win," said Horne.  "I was glad to win it though, especially since I'm a strong believer in the Vantage product."  A self-proclaimed "lighting control freak," Horne said his customers love Vantage because it gives them "flexibility, reliability and expandability."  


Horne is a motorcycle enthusiast, although this is his first Harley-Davidson.  He mentioned that his wife also has her motorcycle license and has designs on the new Harley.   


"Our mission at EHX Spring was to show our appreciation for our customers, and offer key training sessions," said Doug Fikse, president of the Home Systems Division of Legrand.  "I think at the end of the week we can safely say we accomplished our mission, and had a great time with our customers, too!"  


The second-prize winner of a leather Harley-Davidson jacket was Lisa Rouse from GBR Security Services Inc. in Jacksonville, Fla.  According to Rouse, "The jacket fits perfectly, I love it!" 


Vantage's training programs were very successful at EHX, partly due to the popular subject matter: sustainability and retrofit.  Attendees learned the ins and outs of Vantage's most popular products: the Enspire lighting control system, the InFusion home control system, the Home Meter, and the Axium line of A/V products. 


Pictures from the show are now available at, and video of Rick Horne winning the Harley-Davidson will be posted shortly.
