Lights of America was established in 1978 by six brothers in Los Angeles, California. Having very little money at the outset, the business was run out of a garage for about a year until enough money was saved to rent a building. At that time the business made a name for itself and has been going strong ever since. Being a family owned business, LOA prides itself on providing consumers with high quality lighting products at an affordable price. Along with the products comes a commitment to customer service and support, which is handled through our nine service centers strategically located throughout the United States. None of this would be possible without the loyalty and dedication of our employees which has kept us at the top of the electronic lighting industry for both commercial and retail markets for nearly two decades. LOA's contributions to the lighting industry include the phenomenal breakthrough of the electronic ballast and replaceable bulb concept, for use in compact fluorescent to replace incandescent bulbs. Lights of America pioneered the magnetic, solid state circuit, and electronic circuit ballasts. In 1991 LOA successfully demonstrated a 3-way and dimmable circuit at the California Compact in Sonoma, CA. LOA has several patents.
