WAC Lighting Turns 25

WAC Lighting, manufacturer and designer of track, recessed, undercabinet, monorail and decorative lighting, is celebrating 25 years in 2009.


The company was started in Forest Hills, NY in 1984 by Tony and Tai Wang. In the beginning, the company marketed portable lamps at a variety of trade shows across the United States. As its line evolved, WAC began to introduce track fixtures and recessed trims and housings, and gradually shifted into the task lighting segment of the industry. In January 1993, WAC developed a national sales force and opened a showroom in the Dallas Market Center, becoming a major supplier of track and recessed lighting. In 1998, it relocated its corporate headquarters to 615 South Street in Garden City, NY, where its main offices remain today. In 2004, Shelley Wang, daughter of Tony and Tai, joined the company, and was appointed General Manager in 2006. Last year, the company doubled the size of its corporate offices and east coast distribution center to meet current demands.
