About Us

For 25 years, Tech Lighting has been the industry leader in low-voltage lighting systems and contemporary decorative fixtures. Since inception, we have expanded well beyond our roots, and today our portfolio transcends specific aesthetic and categorical definitions – and instead is rooted in innovative, original design and uncompromising quality across a myriad of lighting solutions.

In recent years, we have gained broad recognition on the architectural side of our business for balancing an absolute passion for every design detail with a deep concern for the way our fixtures illuminate a space; we never lose site of the individuals who actually use our products. We care about what they care about.

Couple our focus on design and innovation with our rigorous testing & quality control as well as our unsurpassed level of customer service and technical assistance, and we hope our passionate commitment to you and all our industry partners is evident in everything we do.


About Our Employees

Our employees are at the heart of everything we do. Many have been here since the beginning when we were working out of a tiny facility and the only thing big was our dreams. Over the last 25 years, we have grown to over 300 dedicated team members who are committed to delivering our customers the very best products and service every day.

All of our design and engineering takes place in our headquarters, just outside of Chicago. What many people don't realize, is that while we source glass from the best artisans from around the globe, nearly all of our assembly takes place right in this facility.

Besides just working hard, we have fun. Through company-wide food-drives, toy-drives and donating our time outside of the office, we give back to the community and foster a sense of family within our organization.

Warranty

LIGHTING FIXTURE WARRANTY

Tech Lighting lighting fixtures (both indoor and outdoor), components, and electronic products, when properly installed and under normal conditions of use, are warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for one year from date of sale. LED products with dedicated LEDs or proprietary LED bi-pin modules are warranted for five years. ENERGY STAR® qualified products are warranted for three years.


OUTDOOR LIGHTING FIXTURE WARRANTY

Lighting fixtures installed outdoors are subject to change due to prolonged exposure to sunlight, pollutants and other environmental conditions. Metal finishes on outdoor fixtures will mature naturally over time, and may change in appearance, creating a living finish. Painted finishes on outdoor fixtures may naturally fade over time, depending on the fixture's exposure to the outdoor elements. Therefore, any claim for fading, discoloration or "patina" of a finish on an outdoor fixture is not applicable after expiration of the fixture’s warranty.


COASTAL ENVIRONMENTS

The environment within ten miles of a sea coast can be extremely corrosive. Even with appropriate maintenance, products installed in this environment will typically deteriorate more than products installed in other, less severe environments. Corrosion and/or deterioration is considered "normal wear" in this environment. Therefore, any claim for finish failures, or for corrosion of fixture components due to coastal environment conditions is not applicable to the fixture warranty.

Tech Lighting at their sole option will repair or replace, F.O.B. Factory, freight prepaid, any lighting product defective in materials or workmanship. Such replacement is the exclusive remedy against Tech Lighting should any of the products delivered prove defective. Invoices for labor charges and/or charge backs for labor will be denied unless prior written approval is given.

To replace a product that has a warranted defect, the original purchaser shall return any defective parts or products to the authorized dealer from which the product was purchased, along with proof of purchase and a detailed description of the claimed product defect.

Any modification to a lighting product not made at the factory will void the products' safety listing (such as UL, ETL, etc. or other recognized laboratory) as well as the lighting warranty policy. Flood damage voids any and all warranty of lighting products. This warranty only applies when all components, including power supplies, have been provided by Tech Lighting. Substituting another manufacturer’s product will render the warranty completely void. Upon confirmation of a defect or failure, at our discretion we will repair or replace the item or will refund your purchase price if repair or replacement is not possible or practical. Our warranty covers only the product itself; we will assume no liability for labor costs, installation costs, or other losses. Your warranty rights will be honored only when the product has been installed and used properly. Tech Lighting will not repair or replace products damaged by improper use or faulty installation.

FOR BREACH OF ANY WRITTEN EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY ON THIS PRODUCT, THE CONSUMER IS LIMITED EXCLUSIVELY TO THE REMEDIES PROVIDED IN THIS WARRANTY. IN NO EVENT SHALL TECH LIGHTING BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL DAMAGES SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
