Who Are We?

All around us the world is changing, getting a little brighter, and at the same time using less energy. You’re welcome!

You’ve seen our work in the warm glow of that nice restaurant, in the classrooms of your local college, in your doctor’s office, and at the hardware store. Did we mention the sports field where the band practices, the parking garage at the museum, or your township building? In fact, just about anywhere lighting is used, over the past forty years we helped them or their neighbors become more efficient. That’s right. We’ve been reducing carbon emissions, saving energy and helping become more sustainable before it was even a thing.

We are lighting upgrade experts with decades of successful lighting project experience. We provide services including energy audits, financial analysis and fixture upgrades. We dominate the sales and installation of energy management lighting controls in the region.

Our customer base ranges from small businesses trying to save money, to large hospitals, universities and Fortune 500 companies wanting cutting edge lighting technologies. We also support the utilities, distributors and engineering firms that serve these clients.

Who Are You?

You’ve got that nicely balanced left-brain and right-brain combination. On the strategic side, you can help create and develop business-to-business marketing approaches to generate leads for our sales team. On the execution side, you are comfortable making dozens of follow-up calls each day, as well as outbound cold calls and emails to potential prospects.

Let’s be clear. This is not a sales position. Our professional outside sales team handles that. This is marketing and lead generation. You are helping to identify clients who are interested in what we offer, and who want to speak with our sales team.

You are comfortable and patient when talking to people. Aside from prospects and leads, you will be speaking with our existing business customers and your teammates on a daily basis.

You are adept with technology. You read things carefully and pay attention to details (that is really important). You are organized and find yourself creating systems to save time, increase productivity, and become more efficient.

You like being part of a team and look forward to working everyday in a small office environment in Broomall, PA, where what you will do is so critical to the growth of our company, the owners of the company will be interviewing you personally.

What Will You Do?

Your typical day will cover a wide range of administrative tasks supporting our management, field sales, auditing, and installation teams.
