One of our lighting specialists was recently working with a chief engineer at a commercial office who was scrambling to get a suite ready for a new tenant. The process was pretty typical, and the tenant was putting a share of their improvement funds toward lighting upgrades.
But, as always with construction and remodeling, a problem surfaced: the lighting fixtures that the tenant's architect specified had a 6-8 week lead time, but the tenant was expecting to occupy the space in 4 weeks.
The chief engineer was caught in a pickle, and the manufacturer's rep the architect worked with on the spec had no similar alternatives to offer.
Are you currently retrofitting to LEDs and left with some old lamps? Do you just pile them up in the back of your building?

I know the computer I'm writing this blog post on has, let's see, a motherboard, a hard drive, and some RAM. Oh, and a battery that seems to hold a charge for less and less time.

A few weeks ago, we touched on the topic of service and how Regency's values improve and drive our service. One of Regency's RISE values that doesn’t get as much time in the limelight is expertise. It may seem self-serving to talk about expertise, but it directly impacts our customers and it's an important piece of our culture.

If you were to walk through the office hallways or warehouses of Regency, you may not necessarily hear the term "RISE" used in daily conversation, but you will hopefully see it embedded in our culture.

We are weeks away from heading to Haiti for our first Regency Home building trip, and I am so excited. What a privilege to be a part of doing something life-changing for disadvantaged children. Our work is about more than just selling light bulbs – we want to help and serve people across the globe.

We're targeting year's end for completing the Regency Home in Haiti, which will provide a home for as many as 100 children.
