Palmetto Peddlers

I was starting a new business in an old 30,000 sf. building when I found that I could not repair the lighting because the parts were no longer available due to environmental issues. I realized I had to invest in new lighting and knew little if anything about lighting. I talked with several lighting companies and the technical issues and options became very confusing and very expensive. Then I learned about Elite Lighting in Mullins and gave them a call. Gary Bellos came by to see me the next day and made my complex problem seem simple. He recommended the best option and made me aware of some energy conversation programs that would help to offset the cost of replacing the old lights. Armed with what seemed to be a very professional proposal with detail drawings and lighting studies to support the recommendation as well as recommendations as to reputable installation contractors, I decide to give Elite Lighting and Gary Bellos the order. The experience we had with Elite lighting was the best we could have hoped. The new fixtures were delivered and installed timely and we were most satisfied with the results. Our Business Palmetto Peddlers, located at 2295 Hoffmeyer Rd. in Florence is an Antiques Mall, so lighting is important and we have had many positive comments from our customers about the good lighting. When we realized how much money could be saved in electricity costs with the new technology lighting recommended by Elite Lighting, we decided to get new lighting in a 70,000 sf. building and when that project was completed with satisfactory results, we decided to add new lighting to two other large buildings. In all four projects, we were so pleased I told the Chairman of The Board of Trustees at my church about Elite Lighting and they too used Elite and were very satisfied with the results. I feel comfortable recommending Elite Lighting and Gary Bellos to any one in need of help to solve any type, size and scale of lighting problem.

New Technologies

"Elite lighting has helped resolve many lighting problems for my properties over the 15 years I have been a customer. They keep me informed of new technologies and most important, help me save operating costs. The level of service they provide is of the highest caliber you will find today. True lighting professionals are typically not working in the light bulb supply chain; Elite Lighting is one of the exceptions."

Doug Dillingham, Chief Engineer - Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel, Charlotte, NC

Well-defined Program

"We have been doing business with Elite Lighting Company for approximately 8 years. During this period Elite has established a well-defined program for all of our properties. As a result, our lighting and associated costs have declined due to the energy efficient products Elite has recommended. We now get a consistent supply of high quality energy efficient products and service that cannot be duplicated."

Sunil Patel, Vice President - East Coast Hospitality

Dedication to Quality

"I have been using Elite Lighting Company for the last 17 years. The service I have become accustomed to is best represented by the following example: Joel was in Columbia, South Carolina at 1:00pm. I called him and said I need your help in opening my hotel in Cary, North Carolina now! Joel answered, "I'll be there in 4 hours."
