Why Lighting for Impact

Retail Expertise Meets Engineering Excellence

Lighting for Impact is not, strictly speaking, a lighting company. We are a retail solutions company that evolved out of a decades-long friendship between two industry veterans and thought leaders: one whose deep expertise in retail merchandising strategy informs our approach; another whose decades of experience and global fabrication network enable low-cost, high-quality execution.

Today, Lighting for Impact works with leading retailers across all channels and myriad CPG brands. All have embraced our enlightened approach; all have profited from our intelligently engineered solutions. Together, we’re putting the power of light to work for more retailers and brands than ever before. And we’re just getting started...

Merchandising Expertise

Lighting for Impact’s leadership collectively has more than 30 years’ retail experience — including merchandising design, in-store execution, category management, and sales — working for and with industry-leading solution providers, retailers, and CPGs alike. Our team is known for setting industry best practices and for our unique expertise in driving impulse sales — particularly for immediate consumption categories like confections, beverages, snacks and magazines — at the front of store. Just like front of store, our solutions maximize product presentation to draw in shoppers.

By applying Lighting for Impact's expertise and solutions, Mars Chocolate North America and Wrigley were named 2014 Category Captains by Progressive Grocer for their use of LED solutions at checkout, which boosted front-end sales by an average of 10%-12%.

Strategic Approach to Lighting

We've often heard "When you light everything, nothing stands out." In some cases, that can be true — the question is, how should you use light to highlight your brand and set your in-store experience apart from the competition? Lighting for Impact doesn’t just want to sell you lighting — we want you to be successful in engaging shoppers, building loyalty, and driving sales. Our team of experts and innovators will work with you to select or design the ideal solution for your store(s) — including providing feedback on optimizing existing merchandising to help you reach your objectives.

Dramatic Yet Cost-Effective

We’re as focused on the bottom line as you are, which is why our solutions are as impactful as they are practical, scalable and affordable. In everything from our lighting solutions to our technology and execution partners, we look for the best, most cost-effective way to accomplish your objectives. Lighting for Impact was built from the ground up to enable hassle-free relationships and to become your “one-stop shop” for merchandising and lighting support.

Engineering Excellence

The Lighting for Impact leadership team brings more than 30 years’ experience in large-scale LED, light panel, and ribbon-board design and implementation. Over the years, we’ve developed a long-standing network of global manufacturers who guarantee quality while minimizing cost. Our engineering team prides itself on its reputation for high-quality fabrications, excellent customer service, and manufacturing innovation.

Designed for Retail

Unlike those of many competitors, Lighting for Impact LED lighting solutions are designed specifically for retail. Our solutions are proven to stand up to high traffic, heavy shopping and stocking areas of the store without fail. Our engineering team proudly holds multiple patents on lighting applications for applying LED lighting effectively on varying types of retail shelving.

Guaranteed Quality

Leveraging our network of suppliers, Lighting for Impact has selected only the best, most reliable components from top manufacturers to provide the most consistent light for the longest duration. Although such components are often first to fail in other retail solutions, all of our transformers, switches, power strips and wire maintenance systems are designed to work harmoniously to maximize the lifetime of the lighting. Our LED solutions are UL approved and are guaranteed for up to five years.
