The House of Lights in Melbourne, FL, founded in 1963 and bought by Phil and Jocelyn Bronson in 1968, will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.
The longstanding family business has thousands of products on display in its 10,000-sq-foot headquarters. The company also showcases the latest offerings in fans, furniture, decorative accessories and green-energy technology.
“Energy-saving products are all the rage today and our industry is no different,” says Craig Bronson, Vice President of Business Development for the company. “Saving money and showing a good return on your investment has become one of the most important criteria for every shopping consumer.”
With a focus on emerging technologies such as LED lighting, the energy-saving experts at House of Lights have invested heavily in becoming the leaders in this area. To further this goal they’ve created their own private brand of LED products, EcoLED, which has quickly become of the fastest-selling products the company offers today.
“We’ve obviously experienced the ups and downs of the national and local economy throughout these 50 years of business. And we continually find new and innovative ways to expand and strengthen our company. However, our commitment to honesty, good value, and exceptional service has provided the foundation of our long-term success. The real key though is the quality of the employees we have working hard for us everyday,” says President and CEO Phil Bronson.
Five of House of Lights’ professionals have been with the firm for more than 25 years and with various backgrounds in design, art, lighting and technology, the staff is dynamic.
As a founding member of Lighting One, the largest lighting-showroom buying group in the world with more than 150 members, House of Lights has become a major player in the lighting industry.
