The Finelite Vision We design and manufacture high-performance, environmentally sustainable lighting systems for office, healthcare, and education. For twenty-five years, we have delivered innovations in lighting and set new standards for performance, value, and customer service. We have a passion for the human aspect of lighting. Our award-winning design innovations and research-driven approach are widely recognized. We work with leading architects, lighting consultants, engineers, utilities personnel, and contractors—not just as a vendor but as a highly regarded technical and design resource. The lighting revolution promised by LED can only be realized by reinventing luminaires, lighting systems, and their application. We have partnered with research institutions, the California Energy Commission and the Department of Energy to develop best practices in LED lighting and controls. Through research and exhaustive testing, we have maximized the form factors and controllability and ensured energy-efficient performance over the LED source’s long, long lifetime. Finelite is a profitable, privately owned company poised to grow even more quickly as we capitalize on 25 years of innovation and product leadership. Finelite maintains its corporate headquarters and factories in Union City, and Livermore, California, and we are proud to comply with the Buy American Act of 2009. With manufacturing facilities capable of producing more than 20,000 linear feet of luminaires per day, our on-time shipping record exceeds 99.9%. We continually examine ways to reduce waste through smart product design, lean manufacturing, and corporate best practices, and have received numerous awards for these sustainability efforts. Our systematic approach to component inventory allows continuous product improvement while simultaneously reducing waste. Our experienced and highly-trained sales representatives span the US and Canada. We are proud to service a customer base that includes firms such as Google, Verizon, Dell, MIT, Stanford, and Yale. Setting new standards for innovation, performance, sustainability, and value to the customer has made Finelite the industry leader it is today. And over the next 25 years we will continue to ally with customers, design teams, and institutions across the industry—working together to raise the bar in electrical lighting systems.
