Frontier Lighting: Our Story
Frontier Lighting™ was founded in 1987 in Pinellas County Florida with the founding goals of being a "Best in Class" lighting distributor. Frontier Lighting™ currently has 3 physical locations, one in Bradenton, another in Clearwater, and our third in Ft. Myers, we are currently scouring the Orlando area for a fourth location as we continue to grow. Each of these locations stocks thousands of lighting products, accommodates walk-in counter business, and offer free local delivery to the surrounding areas.
Frontier Lighting's goal has always been to provide superior customer service, high quality lighting products, and technical solutions to lighting problems. Frontier Lighting™ works diligently in transitioning customers from traditional Incandescent, Halogen, Fluorescent and Metal Halide products to more energy efficient LED Lighting products. With helping transition our valued customers to the proper lighting products for their applications, it has resulted in significant energy savings, reduced maintenance costs, and more efficient lighting systems, as well as many satisfied customers.
