MAITLAND, Fla.; November 27, 2017 – SESCO Lighting, the nation’s largest lighting manufacturers’ representative agency with nearly $300 million in annual revenue, has opened its new 16,000 sq. ft. headquarters in Maitland, Florida.
“We started in the Orlando area 50 years ago and this headquarters relocation is an important milestone for our company and a necessary step to meet SESCO’s requirements as America’s leading lighting manufacturers’ representative agency,” said Todd Langner, CEO, SESCO Lighting. “We’ve also refreshed our branding and our business model is strategically organized to maximum internal efficiency and bolster customer service in the midst of rapid growth.”
In addition to extensive business in Florida, the company has exclusive rights to sell a multitude of lighting products in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Puerto Rico. This expansion of the company has enhanced its services, improved the ability to serve customers and bolstered growth. SESCO also provides lighting for projects in many foreign countries.
“Our primary fiscal goal is to achieve $500 million in annual lighting sales by 2020,” said Mike Segal, Founder and Director of Training, SESCO Lighting. “We embrace the responsibility of being industry leaders and 50 years in business is a major accomplishment that is a source of pride for our employees, who are also the owners of the company.”
SESCO has also realized success through its focused business division structure. SESCO Global Lighting supplies projects in South America, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean. The Energy Division retrofits existing buildings and new construction with energy-saving technologies, while the Distributor Solutions Group builds the electrical distributor channel to garner greater allocations of distributor stock. SESCO’s National Accounts Division focuses on large, repeat business across major sectors and the company’s Public Sector Division includes DOT-driven projects and opportunities through local/regional governments.
SESCO’s employee ownership of the company is a tremendous morale booster and incentive driving individual and team achievement. It reflects the company’s intrinsic understanding of the value of people in SESCO’s success.

SESCO Lighting is pleased to announce it is expanding its reach with the acquisition of the G2 Lighting Agency, based in Birmingham, AL. According to Todd Langner, President/CEO of SESCO Lighting, “Today more than ever, this acquisition helps support our growing sales efforts. This opportunity creates a unified specification, contractor and distributor support structure over our entire footprint. From a geographical standpoint, our now contiguous footprint bolsters our presence in both the greater Atlanta and Gulf Coast markets.”
It has been a goal of SESCO Lighting to expand into Alabama, and the buzz and excitement over the announced acquisition in the Birmingham market is something that is embraced by the growing SESCO Lighting team. Marshall Graham, SESCO’s Chairman, says, “When looking at this acquisition, it quickly became apparent that Shannon Godwin and the team at G2 Lighting were an extraordinarily good fit for SESCO. The fact that SESCO and G2 Lighting are both specification driven companies made Shannon’s team the obvious choice.”
When the contract was finalized, Shannon Godwin, President of G2 Lighting added, “I sincerely appreciate the opportunity the SESCO family has provided G2 Lighting Agency and its employees. I am very thankful to the outstanding manufacturers and staff who supported G2 Lighting Agency over the last several years. I owe a debt of gratitude to the specifiers, distributors and contractors who supported G2 and we all look forward to a new beginning as we join the SESCO family!” The G2 Lighting Agency and its employees will be integrated into SESCO over the next month.
Today, SESCO Lighting is the nation’s largest and most successful lighting manufacturers’ representative company, with more than 250 employees and annual sales approaching $300 million.
