Georgia-Based Colonial Lighting Celebrates 50 Years in Business

Atlanta, GA

This year, Colonial Lighting marked its 50th anniversary. Since its beginnings, Colonial has based its operations around providing quality products and best-in-class customer service. The company believes this commitment has been the driving factor behind reaching this significant milestone.


“There are plenty of places to purchase lighting, but Colonial differentiates itself by making it more about the customer experience,” said Frank Therrien, General Manager for Colonial Lighting. “While we have a showroom that displays an impressive amount of product, we want to engage our customers and learn about their lighting needs and style so we can pinpoint the right solutions for their project.”


Offering customers an unmatched line of products and specialty expertise, Colonial carries over 100,000 lighting items from over 60 top manufacturers. The Sugar Hill showroom features more than 1,000 fixtures in styles ranging from ultra-modern to old-world traditional and everything in between.


Established in 1967, Colonial Lighting has grown from small business to becoming part of the Builder Specialties portfolio in 2010. Builder Specialties later merged with Construction Resources in late 2015, but the Colonial name remained with its decades of heritage and brand equity among builders, designers, and homeowners in Georgia.


As part of the Construction Resources family of businesses, Colonial Lighting is supported by a network of showroom and distribution locations. Construction Resources aims to provide a one-stop shop for a wide array of home products, accompanied by design knowledge and an unsurpassed level of service. More than just a supplier of products, Colonial Lighting has designers on staff with extensive knowledge to help bring plans to life.


In celebration of their 50th year, Colonial Lighting is planning a Customer Appreciation event in January 2018. Details will be announced soon.


“If you haven’t visited Colonial Lighting and you have any interest in updating even one light fixture in your home, you owe it to yourself to visit this showroom,” Therrien encouraged. “Come and see what our 50-year reputation is all about!”
