Bulbtronics, Inc., a leading supplier of bulbs, batteries, fixtures, color media, tools and expendables to entertainment, general lighting, industrial, medical, scientific and transportation markets, announces the appointment of Warren Thompson to the newly created position Director of Business Development.

Thompson started with Bulbtronics as an inside sales representative in 1994 selling lamps and expendables into the TV market. In 1998 he established and built the company’s Battery Division, making Bulbtronics a top ten distributor in the domestic market sourcing from all manufacturers including Duracell, Eveready, Rayovac and Panasonic. Two years ago Thompson moved into the company’s Medical Sales area, successfully building market share for Bulbtronics’ battery and bulb product line by opening new distribution channels. In his new position Thompson is responsible for targeting and developing new opportunities in all markets.

"Thompson exemplifies the knowledgeable and experienced team of professionals we have at Bulbtronics," says Bruce R. Thaw, president and CEO.
