Passion for Lighting.
Robinson Lighting has been perfecting the art of light for over 80 years, and now in our 5th generation of the Robinson Family. Thomas Robinson, our pioneer, ﬁrst generation family member started the venture into the lighting industry as a chandler (candle maker) in Montreal, Quebec around 1850. His son, William Wadby Robinson moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba and in 1919 established a successful lighting agency business which is recognized as the ﬁrst dealer of pre-wired lighting ﬁxtures in Western Canada.
In 1936 B. A. Robinson Co. Ltd. was founded by Burt A. Robinson, the third generation Robinson to supply lighting and electrical products to Canadian commercial and residential customers. With B.A&. at the helm for close to 40 years the business became synonymous with service, quality and value.
In 1973, the company was acquired by Burt's two sons, Ross and Bruce Robinson. Expansion brought new branches that were opened across Western Canada.
Fast forward to 1998, with Bruce Robinson as President, Robinson Lighting became its own free standing entity. The torch has now passed to a fifth generation of Robinson's to follow in the footsteps of their father, Brett Robinson is now the President of Robinson Lighting and his sister Leigh Robinson is Vice President.
165 years later this heritage is what drives us to deliver the best shopping experience for our customers and our effort to be an industry leading employer to our staff and active community partner. The company has become one of Western Canada's largest showroom-based distributors of lighting products and is known as a leader in lighting education and industry advocate.
