Addressing Coronavirus Supply Chain Disruption Concerns

By | News | No Comments
With many concerns about Coronavirus and the potential effects its spread may have on PMC Lighting’s ability to deliver product, we would like to remind everyone that PMC Lighting is a true US producing manufacturer. We use local vendors for the vast majority of our components and purchase our raw materials, aluminum, and steel, from domestic suppliers. All of our designs are engineered, fabricated, assembled, packaged, and shipped from North America.
With any modern LED-based lighting system, the critical components are LED Drivers and LED Boards. We are happy to say that our major suppliers of LED drivers and LED boards assemble these in the USA or Mexico. Our distributors for these items stock very large quantities of all the models we use. Our local manufacturers also heavily stock components in their manufacturing facilities in the USA or Mexico and many also primarily source components outside of China.
While PMC and our critical component suppliers are not immediately affected by issues in China, if there is a lengthy disruption in the supply chain such that driver and board manufacturers cannot get components that go into these critical items, then we could see a lengthening of lead times after all distributor and manufacturer stocks are depleted. If conditions come to that point, it would be an issue that would affect every fixture manufacturer globally, not just PMC. We do maintain alternate sources for critical components and would leverage these to provide fixtures in a timely manner should there be a time when the supply chain for these components tightens.
No one really can predict the future with 100% accuracy when it comes to times such as these. You can be assured that no matter what business conditions exist, PMC Lighting will do everything within our power to provide our customers with timely delivery of the products they need. If any customer has concerns about getting fixtures for their projects from PMC Lighting we recommend talking with us about your needs early.
As always we thank you for your support. Together we will work through whatever world situations come about.

Aesthetics and Function: PMC Lighting’s Products Deliver Non Traditional Lighting Options

By | News | No Comments

In our modern world, we want performance; specifically, products that deliver the results that the manufacturer offers. On the flip side, we want this functionality to be combined with aesthetically-pleasing exteriors. Can we have it all? With PMC Lighting’s lighting collections, designers, architects, and specifiers will find that the answer to this question is: YES.

Basic, traditional lighting is still available; but why not explore non-traditional lighting to make commercial spaces more than just utilitarian areas?

Disinfecting Function 

Vital Vio’s White Light Disinfection® Technology can be added to PMC Lighting’s luminaires to  deliver the disinfecting power of Vital Vio. We can integrate Vital Vio technology to any application or aesthetic preferences. We create a precisely engineered luminaire that meets your space needs with the benefit of infection control. pūr-led™ luminaries have clean, modern, and stylish looks to achieve the perfect blend of design form and disinfecting function for any room or structure.

Restore Circadian Rhythm and Promote Better Sleep

PMC Lighting’s luminaires can be easily fitted with BIOS® SkyBlue® circadian solutions to produce the healthy “blue sky” light signal needed to stimulate human circadian biology. This specific light wavelength communicates directly with human biology to regulate circadian rhythms, provide healthier sleep patterns and ultimately, better health. Having an improved circadian rhythm can positively impact daytime productivity and overall feelings of well-being to a variety of workers. BIOS SkyBlue technology can be integrated into virtually any architectural light fixture and is intended for use in a variety of daytime environments, such as offices, classrooms, hospitals, etc.

Mitigate Noise with Akustik

PMC Lighting Inc.’s akūstik lighting fixtures provide high quality LED lighting as well as noise mitigation in the installed environment. Wrapped in sound deadening material, Akūstik fixtures are wrapped in sound-deadening material and can help reduce ambient noise by absorbing sound instead of reflecting it. That feature can reduce the negative effects of a noisy environment, while still adding beauty and style to various environments where reduced noise is desirable. 


Our ArcX Collection gives designers the ability to create a sense of movement with curved, free-form luminaries that can flow through hallways, circumvent lobbies, or soar over offices. Ranging from understated to bold, ArcX lighting can keep branding consistent throughout a space. By using personalized colors or whimsical shapes, a building’s lobbies, office spaces, and hallways can come alive and make a statement with modern, fresh lighting.


PMC Lighting custom designs lighting fixtures that are created to meet a desired specification. Designers can play with light, color, and shape. Each luminaire is manufactured to perfectly bring a brilliant idea to life. PMC collaborates with designers and specifiers to create lighting and luminaires that inspire and delight onlookers, but also deliver energy efficiency and control options for ease of use.We think beyond the traditional or standard. We can now meld beautiful lighting with disinfecting capabilities, sound-reducing features, and tunable technology.

PMC would love to answer any questions you might have about our catalog of products. We can combine several functions to create the optimal lighting for your project. Contact a sales agent for more information.

PMC Lighting-Made In The U.S.A.

Made in the U.S.A. 

It’s a label we are proud to bear here at PMC Lighting. By marking our fixtures with this label, we signify quality, innovation, durability, and most importantly, pride. Affixing this label to our products means that we have taken the time and effort to build a high-quality product with the skilled craftsmen of our great country. It means delivering a product that has appeal and value for the consumer. The concept and principles that define “Made In the U.S.A.” are so important to us, they are etched in our statement of core values and are part of PMC Lighting’s philosophy.

We are truly a U.S. manufacturer. We use local vendors and seek long-term relationships with U.S. supplier partners who share our goal of creating a sustainable, high-value supply chain to support our customers and the end-user market.  All of our designs are engineered, fabricated, assembled, packaged, and shipped from North America from our facility in Rhode Island. Our state of the art progressive tooling is equally matched by our experienced and dedicated team of employees, driving us to create the highest quality luminaires and premiere lighting systems available today. From the ArcX collection to pūr-led™ disinfecting lighting, all are American made. 

As a domestic manufacturer, we know that our work helps to stimulate the American economy. Did you know that for every dollar invested in manufacturing here in the United States, $1.89 is added back into the economy? And by manufacturing products here, we contribute to a cleaner environment and decrease tons of emissions that global shipping releases. Made In The U.S.A. means a greener environment.

Since increased costs of foreign-made goods have caused concerns, it is important to reiterate that products Made In The U.S.A. are not subject to recently imposed tariffs. Most importantly, when you purchase Made In The U.S.A. products, you are helping to protect and increase American jobs and invest in the United States.

Beyond Made in the U.S.A., PMC Lighting’s products are Made in R.I.

We think being based in Rhode Island is special. Rhode Island is a unique place, a melting pot of different ethnicities, with some of the best food, beaches, and history in the country. Manufacturing has had a home in Rhode Island from Slater Mill and the Industrial Revolution to modern machine shops and jewelry making. Basing our manufacturing operations in the state is a natural fit.

PMC Lighting embodies the tenacious American spirit in all that we do. Made In The U.S.A. is who and what we are. Wishing all a Happy Independence Day!
