The company has since grown to become a leading innovator of LED lighting and other energy-saving technologies, providing high-quality products to the commercial, industrial, residential, and OEM markets through its distribution and manufacturing centers in California and Indiana. The company also maintains, sales, quality, engineering and design centers in Shanghai and Dongguan, China, as well as South Korea.

Our focus on innovative product design and strong distribution partnerships have enabled us to grow and expand our vision. I look forward to our continued success on the journey ahead with our talented leadership and internal teams.”
“This year marks 30 years of consistently providing our customers, distributors, and agent partners with exceptional energy-saving solutions and quality service. Their loyalty inspires us to create new ways to meet and exceed their energy saving product needs,” said Spencer Bolgard, President & CEO. “With our strong in-house engineering and design capabilities, we’re well-positioned to continue to enhance our position as a provider of choice within the channels we serve. Our robust sales and support teams, ‘ease of doing business’ approach and commitment to being a great place to work also help drive our success. I’m excited for what lies ahead as we maintain our focus on bringing innovative, value-driven products to market.”
