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 and controls community with creative and technical solutions for specific project applications.

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 2019/2020, the agency established a “new beginning” by adding John Weintraub and Brian Labbe to its ownership team, representing The Hubbell Lighting Group and 57 additional specification lines covering every segment of the lighting and controls market.

We continually strive to be the best agency for the NY metropolitan/Long Island territory.
