The Tech Lighting Story
As the current industry leader in low voltage lighting, Tech Lighting started small. It was founded in 1983 in Skokie, IL (outside Chicago), its first major product offering the low voltage Kable Lite rail system in 1988. Its distinctive dual-cable design quickly established the trendsetting reputation of Tech track lighting and set the stage for the company's rapid growth and innovative lighting solutions to come.
These days, the company claims a wide family of brands including 2Thousand Degrees, Tiella Lighting and Wilmette Lighting, covering an endless range of decorative and functional lighting needs. The company now offers a wide assortment of pendant lighting, chandeliers, linear suspension, wall lights, flushmounts, vanity lights and accenting light fixtures. Tech provides a solution to almost any decorative lighting need.
