If you’ve attempted to buy light bulbs or light fixtures lately, you’re probably pretty confused. We’re here to help… We alleviate the frustration surrounding legislative changes, utility incentive processing and constant technology changes by presenting our partners with logical solutions to sometimes fairly complex problems. Lighting technology is changing every six months. As a business manager, do you really have the time to keep pace with all those changes?
Orion Lighting Solutions, or OLS as we affectionately like to refer to ourselves, is a niche distributor of light bulbs, lighting fixtures, lighting equipment and supplies. Stocking light bulbs, light fixtures and lighting controls for fluorescent lighting, LED lighting, induction lighting, incandescent lighting, and HID lighting, and most things in-between.
Orion Lighting Solutions was founded in 2004 with a desire to specialize in one exciting niche, lighting. Hmmm…. Interesting. Why you might ask…. Well most people don’t realize the energy wasted by utilizing inefficient lighting technology, nor do they understand how to fix the problem. We take that serious. We thrive on helping our partners reduce energy use while improving the overall quality of light, in turn improving productivity, enhancing moral and making their workplace a safer environment. We create the right light for each individual situation. We love it when our customers tell us that they never thought the improvement could be so dramatic. We love to create shadows where shadows need to be created. We love to direct light to the specific areas of the facility it needs to be directed to, minimizing wasted light and minimizing wasted cost. We love helping our partners improve their overall business, most importantly, the bottom line.
OLS is headquartered in Elkhart, Indiana, where we have a 12,000-SF building packed full of light bulbs and other commercial lighting supplies. We have Lighting Specialists devoted to our partners in the Northern Indiana markets of , Granger, South Bend, Mishawaka, Goshen, Nappanee, Warsaw, Bremen, Plymouth, Niles, Kalamazoo, Portage and the rest of Michiana.
Our second location opened in 2014 in the Central Ohio market, servicing Columbus, Powell, Dublin, Delaware, Worthington, Westerville, New Albany, Grove City, Gahanna and the rest of the Columbus suburbs. We are looking forward to making a strong impact on the Central Ohio market in the coming years.
We ship directly to our partners facilities either via one of our own delivery trucks or through various freight arrangements, including UPS. We supply customers all over the United States and we’re honored and humbled to be the supplier of choice for more than 450-active and thriving businesses in 2018. We’re also pretty proud of the fact that in 2013, we were the single largest contributor the Energize Indiana Incentive Program in the country, securing over $4MM in incentive money for our partners in that year alone. In the five years since, we average well over 250 utility incentive applications annually, securing millions of dollars in incentives for our partners and removing more than 50MM kWh of electricity from the grid.
It’s crazy if you think about it, but sometimes just changing light bulbs can improve the bottom line for your business more than the impact a new sales representative can make on your business.
