Golden is a lighting company that designs and manufactures residential light fixtures and chandeliers. Founded in 1982, Golden Lighting was established as an importer of manufactured products. In the mid-1980s, significant distribution opportunities were uncovered in the ceiling fan market that allowed the company to focus on selling fans to electrical and builder supply houses in the Southeast. During the 1990s, the focus shifted toward residential lighting fixtures and as the product line developed, more decorative lighting products were added. Today, Golden Lighting sells primarily to lighting showrooms and electrical supply houses throughout the United States.
Golden Lighting has an outstanding reputation for understanding customer needs and incorporating those needs into its product designs. Strong industry awareness, a high level of customer service, and a dedicated team of highly trained sales professionals are hallmarks that have solidified Golden’s position as a leader in the residential lighting industry.
