The Lithonia Lighting Story
Lithonia Lighting was founded in 1946 in the town of Lithonia, GA. Over the years, the company gained a reputation for designing and producing dependable and increasingly innovative lighting solutions for commercial, industrial and institutional settings. Today, Lithonia Lighting is located in nearby Conyers, GA, as part of the Acuity Brands Company.
Under the Light Concepts brand, it has expanded into the realm of decorative--and energy efficient--indoor and outdoor lighting for residential applications.
Why We Love Lithonia Lighting
Lithonia Lighting produces energy efficient light fixtures that are also stylish and have great value. The styles range from crisp, white and minimalist contemporary lighting to warm, classically influenced transitional fixtures. Whatever the style, all Lithonia Lighting fixtures accept energy efficient fluorescent lamping, most of them ENERGY STAR Qualified. And you can't argue with Lithonia's history. More than 65 years of producing strong and reliable lighting means that their decorative lighting fixtures are also built to last.
A Fun Fact About Lithonia Lighting
The Lithonia Lighting parent company, Acuity Brands, has encouraged the best and brightest to pursue a career in lighting design with the Besal Lighting Education Fund. Established in 1983 in honor of former Lithonia VP Robert J. Besal, the Besal Fund has distributed more than $500,000 to potential lighting designers and engineers. In association with that, in 1987, the M.A. Woods Scholar of the Year prize was founded in the memory of another respected Lithonia VP, Mickey Woods.
