Since the acquisition by the Genlyte Group of Strand Lighting Inc., and the closure of Strand Lighting UK Ltd. last month, Strand Lighting Inc. has been working on interim arrangements to provide the best possible support for European dealers and end users.

For the present, Strand Lighting products will be supplied to European customers from Strand’s US and Hong Kong warehouses, with customer service being carried out in the Strand Lighting Inc. Cypress, CA facility. Technical Support is once again available in Europe for all Strand products, and will be provided by Field Service Technicians under contract to Strand Lighting Inc. – see contact details below. Further support for project planning and commissioning will for the time being be provided by Strand Lighting Inc. application engineers and field service technicians.

Strand Lighting Inc. has appointed Barndoor BV as European sales representative. Barndoor BV is hiring experienced salespeople to represent Strand Lighting Inc. in the European marketplace. Strand Lighting Inc. will sell directly to dealers, rental companies and certain end customers, with Barndoor acting purely as a factory representative.

Strand Lighting Inc. will be exhibiting at the PLASA show in London, and they are planning a number of new product introductions. A full team will be on hand to meet new and old friends, answer questions, show off new products and, above all, demonstrate our commitment to serving the European market.
