Agency History

Electric Lighting Agencies, Inc. was founded in 1955. The company’s original name was Electric Agencies and has since grown to be the oldest and most successful lighting manufacturer’s representative in the New York Metropolitan area.

ELA currently has approximately 45 employees and operates from two locations; New York City and Jericho, Long Island. Each office is staffed to assist the lighting community with creative and technical solutions for specific project applications as well as customer service for order entry, expediting and inside sales support.

Electric Lighting Agencies has a long-standing tradition of excellence and professional representation and continues to grow by providing products of quality and integrity. The company’s success has been structured by its exceptional loyal base of qualified employees providing unsurpassed service to our valued customers.

In 2010, the agency merged with the Encore Sales Agency and Encore Emergency Lighting, and established a “new beginning” representing the Hubbell Lighting Group and Color Kinetics in addition to all of our other exceptional manufacturers. We continually strive to maintain our tradition of excellent service for the N.Y. and N.J. metropolitan commercial lighting market place.
