About Arkansas Lighting
Arkansas Lighting manufactures and distributes decorative and energy efficient lighting for hospitality, multifamily, commercial and government customers. We were founded in 1972 as Arkansas Lamp Manufacturing. We entered the contract hospitality business during the early 1980’s. For most of our history since then our business has been approximately 75% hospitality and 25% US Government. As we have grown over the past several years, we have developed relationships in the multifamily and commercial lighting segment and the breakdown is now approximately 80% hospitality, 10% commercial and 10% government.
We are a family owned business. Bob Null, our CEO, purchased the company in 1997 and is joined by two sons, Jeff and Greg. Jeff was named President in 2009 and Greg was named Vice President of Sales in 2013.
We recognize that the most important thing we sell is customer service. We are committed to having a real person answer each and every telephone call. We respond quickly and professionally to all requests for information and quotes. During the sales and manufacturing process, our customer service department will keep you informed of our status and expected delivery dates. And after the product ships, we are fully committed to your ongoing satisfaction with industry leading service and warranty support.
We have a business-to-business sales model. With rare exceptions, we sell only through dealers and resellers. We seek long term relationships with buyers who have the ability to place frequent orders. We will not undercut these long term relationships for a quick one-off opportunity.
We manufacture and distribute a wide variety of decorative lighting products, from portable table and floor lamps to direct wired ceiling and wall sconces to custom pendants and other lighting products. We have recently expanded our line to include recessed commercial LED down lights and troffers in addition to outdoor wall sconces.
We are particularly proud of our recent introduction of our Made in the US commercial LED ceiling and wall sconces. Once you consider the amazing dollar savings of installing LED fixtures, it is apparent that the big savings begins in the second or third year after the initial investment is recovered. You need the confidence that these luminaires will actually perform as expected over a long period of time. All of these fixtures use components from Cree Lighting, the premier LED designer and fabricator in the world. Best of all, these luminaires are manufactured right here in the United States. These fixtures have undergone rigorous testing that low priced imports simply haven’t. These fixtures are all ENERGY STAR certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Your customer’s property may be eligible to receive significant incentives from local, state and federal governments to help fund the purchase and installation of the fixtures.
Finally, we are a domestic manufacturer. We still manufacture about 50% of what we sell right here in the United States. We evaluate every new product to determine the best way to bring it to market and our customers are often best served to manufacture the luminaires right here in our plant. We balance this with deep and long lasting commercial relationships with other lighting manufacturers so that we have the broadest possible ability to meet customer needs at all price points and volume levels.
