PMC Lighting Featured Collection: ArcX Lighting

By | News | No Comments

As you know, part of the PMC Lighting philosophy of Build2Spec includes the creation of fixtures outside of the traditional. Whether it be altering existing fixture designs to meet an application, or collaborating on a unique design concept, our design engineers can bring any idea to life.

Our ArcX lighting collection gives designers a realm of possibilities with fixtures whose curves can take on a variety of shapes. Here are two locations where this lighting made a significant impact.

Take for example, a recent project at the Lea County Judicial Complex in Hobbs, NM by Schroeder’s Sales. Our lighting met the designer’s and building owner’s vision by matching the arc of the Judge’s bench. RMKM Architecture also worked to create this redesigned, modernized courtroom. 

Thank you to Carrie at Schroeder Sales for sharing this photo and providing information on this location. 

Above is another recent ARCX installation for one of our agents very own offices. This curvy lighting was installed in Quantum Lighting Group’s new office in Salt Lake City, UT. In the near future, we will be adding an additional section to this office. 

Our ArcX fixtures were installed in the lunchroom of the new ABC Supply Company‘s new central offices in Beloit, WI.

ArcX is a perfect option for designers who want to add style and functionality. Contact your Regional Sales Manager Jim Smith for more information. 

February 2019 PMC Lighting Featured Agent of the Month: Schroeder Sales

By | News | No Comments

PMC Lighting is proud to announce our February Featured Agent of the Month, New Mexico’s Premier Sales Agency, Schroeder Sales located in Albuquerque.

Jim Smith, Western Regional Sales Manager, is pleased to announce that Schroeder Sales has been chosen as our February Featured Agent. “I chose Schroeder Sales as our featured agent because they epitomize the PMC Lighting sales agency model. They recognize PMC Lighting’s diverse manufacturing and product design proficiencies and utilize these capabilities to provide unique Build2Spec solutions that not only satisfy the needs of their customers but also provides a tool that helps maintain the integrity of the agency’s overall project specification.”

David Schroeder is a Principal at Schroeder Sales and works in Sales and Quotes. John Tomlinson, also in Sales, was our primary contact on the project where PMC Lighting’s products were used: The Willie Ortiz State Office Building. “The project was ideal for a 2000K-6000K-2000K CCT work day scene transition.  The architect, Dan Caruso from RMKM architecture, said that the repurposed basement of the Willie Ortiz building would have no windows and to emulate the passing of time via color tuning would be a great design element. A hybrid solution of 4000K task lighting above centrally located work stations and perimeter cove lighting simulating clerestory skylights gave the effect of access to the outdoors. ”

John continues, “The color tuning cove lighting was not cataloged at the time of specification. The technology and fixture profile were coordinated quickly with PMC.”

The ease of working with PMC Lighting is also a highlight that both John and David mention. “It was very easy to work out the details because PMC encouraged access to their engineer who was patient as we worked through the details of the product requirements. Confirmation via clear emails and follow-up drawings made the process very easy. Product deviations and modifications can take a lot of time; this did not.”

Jim Smith also echoes David’s sentiments about the ease of working with Schroeder. “Our partnership with Schroeder Sales continues to deliver profitable results that differentiate them throughout the Albuquerque and greater New Mexico market as a true lighting solutions provider.”

We at PMC Lighting look forward to more projects to work on with the agents at Schroeder Sales!
