(www.littlegiantladders.com), maker of the original articulating ladder, is raising the
industry bar for ladder safety standards with its innovative new Combo SXE™
combination and Lunar™ extension ladders. Bright House Networks (brighthouse.com),

“Little Giant continues to enhance its product line of fiberglass ladders with
groundbreaking safety features to address the risks that working professionals often
face,” said Ryan Moss, CEO, Little Giant Ladder Systems and Vice President of the

particularly debilitating shoulder and back injuries from handling much heavier
traditional ladders. With its commitment to safety in the workplace, Bright House
Networks’ decision to outfit its employees with the Combo SXE and Lunar is a
testament to its dedication to workplace safety.”
