About Monterey Lighting Solutions

Your Lighting Distribution Experts

Monterey Lighting Solutions was founded in 2006 as a specialized distributor of energy-efficient lighting solutions. Our initial focus was to help organizations lower the cost of their energy bills by adopting energy-efficient lighting products. As our business grew, we began providing procurement and distribution services to the tenant improvement and new construction markets. In this capacity, we quickly learned that the existing processes caused a lot of friction and often resulted in project delays and frustration for all stakeholders.

Working closely with our partners in the supply chain, we sought to remedy this industry-wide problem by developing a unique business model that relies on a single point of contact and prioritizes communication throughout all phases of the lighting design, sourcing, and installation processes.

Our “Smarter Way to Source Lighting” provides significant benefits to our customers, saving them time and money while ensuring they get the products they want without the need for late-stage compromises.

Today, Monterey Lighting Solutions is a full-service lighting solutions company representing hundreds of manufacturers and serving a diverse customer base. Our clients include large-scale property managers/owners, construction managers, design build contractors, architects, lighting designers, electricians and retrofit contractors.

Monterey made an effort to engage the client to get a sense of their needs. They brought transparency and cost savings to the project and introduced sensible solutions that saved a lot of time and effort. A great team player!

Ron SutliffProject Development Services, Cushman & Wakefield

Because the Monterey team was involved early on in the project, they were able to seek out a solution to serve the design intent. They saved me a lot of time and headache on a project where I already had a lot on my plate.

Chelsea KobzaArchitect, Gensler

Monterey’s service and project management skills are impeccable. Because the lighting package was already specified and approved, we were able to get the job done quickly and efficiently. The project went smoother on our end because of their involvement early on.
