Our Roots

Over 42 years ago, our entrepreneurial founders began selling Incandescent lighting out of their garage in Calgary. From our humble roots we have grown to become Western Canada's largest lighting distribution company, with over 5 locations across Canada.

The inspiration around this business at first was quite simple: wholesale lighting distribution. However, as lighting and technology has progressed over time, we’ve realized that property owners, managers and tenants face considerable challenges in order to understand & deploy the correct technology for the budget and application. The capital investment demanded expertise; expertise we have in spades. However, this was just the beginning.

So over the last 42 years we grew and evolved into something more.

Our Expertise

Since lighting typically comprises about 30% of annual energy expenditure in a commercial building, we knew that we needed to help businesses implement the necessary changes to take advantage of emergent technology. We needed to lead a discussion of energy management & how to make sense of the business case while achieving sufficient light levels.

Highly Specialized

Instead of just being a lighting distributor, we are your energy consultant. We make sense of the myriad of choices with a strong understanding of the market and its never-ending evolution.

Customer Focused

As a 2nd generation 100% Canadian owned business, we made a conscious choice to double down on our value proposition. We challenge ourselves to exceed our customers’ expectations, and we aim to get better every day.

Solutions Oriented

We want to help you find the best solution to help you save on energy expenditure while leveraging any local rebate programs. This can include anything from lighting, controls, EV charging, horticulture, or any custom solution.

Our team specializes in keenly understanding your business first, then pairing a system that fits. Whether you're a business owner, property manager, electrical contractor, developer, or operations manager, our team can find the right solution for you.

Our value proposition is simple:

We match the correct technology for the application that suits your sustainability and ROI goals.
