Medallion Lighting started in 1982 as a manufacturer and distributor of portable lighting products. The company was founded on the principles of providing quality, value and service to its many customers in both the hospitality and retail industries. These three principles are still in place today, giving guidance and direction to the company's development of product offerings and markets to pursue. In addition, a common sense approach to business has allowed the company to invest heavily in inventory and develop an industry leading ''quick ship'' program. Medallion continues today as a privately held partnership.
