About ILF - The Go-To Commercial and Municipal Lighting Supplier
ILF was born from the need to fill a huge gap in the commercial lighting world. About fourteen years ago, a few of us electricians, technicians, and energy-efficient lighting experts saw how hard it was to find reliable high-quality lighting.
The birth of ILF – Induction Lighting
At this time, induction lighting was starting to take the place of many HID applications, like metal halide, high-pressure sodium, and mercury vapor. But one of the biggest problems was that affordable induction lighting typically came from China and other overseas outlets. These suppliers came and went, leaving contractors, managers, and supply houses hanging.
Hence, we banded together and started producing our own induction lighting fixtures and bulbs. To keep costs low for you, the contractors, managers, and supply house buyers, we decided to sell direct instead of to distributers. This website provides you that factory direct supply and all the benefits that come with it.
Adding commercial LED and solar lighting to our offerings
Over the years, LED lighting has matured to play a major role in commercial lighting applications. Nowadays, both induction and LED have the applications they are best fit for. For this reason, we added some emerging products to our offerings. These included corn cob lights, tube lights, and solar roadway lights.
In September 2013, we launched our first version of inductionlightingfixtures.com, with these induction lighting and LED solutions. From the get-go, our customers have spoken up about how much this supply resource has been helping them.
Now, the technologies of induction lighting, LED, and solar lighting have matured. And so has our website and offerings. We are proud to be able to offer you a clean easy way to purchase any eco-friendly commercial, industrial, and municipal lighting solution you may need.
