TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 26, 2015) - CRS Electronics Inc. ("CRS" or the "Company"), (TSX VENTURE:LED), a developer and manufacturer of LED lighting products, announces it has signed a loan agreement whereby the Lender agrees to make credit facilities of an operating loan of up to $1,000,000 and an uncommitted facility an additional $500,000 to the Company. CRS Electronics has partnered with Optimize Capital Markets, a corporate finance firm which specializes in securing capital for leading growth enterprises.
