Glendale, AZ – December 16, 2016 – Barron Lighting Group, the inventor of the first LED exit sign and brands such as Exitronix, Trace*Lite, specialtyLED and Indoor Grow Science, announces the acquisition of Growlite, the leader in horticulture lighting products.
Barron Lighting Group’s 44 years of lighting history combines the science of HID and LED lighting with Growlite’s understanding of the art of indoor horticulture to produce the highest performing, most energy efficient, UL and ETL listed luminaires for the professional and hobby grow markets. Barron Lighting Group has been the U.S. distributor of Growlite products during the last three years and will continue to provide innovating, cost-conscious solutions that fit the various needs of our growers across the country.
By combining our resources under one roof in Glendale, AZ, we can integrate a much larger engineering, R&D, quality control, customer service and sales team to benefit this growing market. Our 80,000 sq. ft. facility also houses a UL certified lighting lab and enough room to grow as we develop the next stage of leading edge lighting products.
The continued support of Growlite founder, Aubrey Bradley, has afforded Barron the great opportunity and understanding of a career lighting professional with the knowledge and relationships of a respected innovator in horticulture lighting to further expand its products and services. Aubrey began his career in lighting representing Barron as our leading lighting rep in southern California. We were sorry when he left the business to pioneer his own line of innovative horticultural lighting but watched with great interest the success he was having. Aubrey is a true innovator and entrepreneur and Barron is excited to take Growlite to the next level with Aubrey still at the wheel.
“We partnered with Barron Lighting Group over three years ago and both of our brands experienced extreme growth, so it made sense for us to combine our resources. As a sign of Barron’s commitment, they are replacing the Indoor Grow Science brand name with Growlite and I am super stoked,” says Aubrey Bradley, Sales and Business Development, Barron Lighting Group.
