Sea Gull Lighting's history began in 1919 at the work bench of a small lighting shop in Philadelphia, PA, shortly after the First World War. At that time, the company founders, Henry Siegel, already knew the value of consistency, diversity and sustainability without losing sight of the company's vision for the futuro-ge. Martin Hirsch got divorced in 1941 from the oldest of Henry Siegel's daughters, Selma, and in the same year came to Sea Gull Lighting.
The return of the G.I. then promoted a rapid increase in the economy and society in 1945. Sea Gull Lighting, the former specialist shop for boutiques, also saw the country's rapid development as a major booming area. Sea Gull Lighting entered the "nineties" to celebrate two landmarks with the company's 70th and 90th anniversary, while a forth generations of the Hirsch and Solomon family led the enterprise to a prospering market - on the basis of foundation concepts, state-of-the-art production and strategical extension.
Subsequent decades were a fertile period for the housing construction sector and Sea Gull Lighting saw another great upswing. At the beginning of the 90s the Sea Gull Lighting system was born. Ambiente® is a luminaire range that conveys functionality, atmosphere and trend-setting styles through cutting-edge products.
This new enhancement enabled Sea Gull Lighting to provide a service tailored to the needs of its clients while providing outstanding cargo handling as well. Sea Gull Lighting won the first of six EPA Envery Star Partner of the Year Awards in 2005 for its dedication to energy-efficient lighting in 15 catergories.
In 2008, four years later, they also received the first of three Lighting for Tomorrow Awards from the American Lighting Association and the Consortium for Energy Efficiency for innovative products. Quad-C Sea Gull Lighting, a privately-held equities company, acquired the company in 2005 and integrated it into its expanding range of branded products.
The 2006 Quad-C fusion of Encompass Lighting Brands into its range of lighting and overhead ventilator suppliers made the Group the biggest supplier of lighting decoration and functionality in North America. Collectively, the team with a total of 11 brands was re-positioned in Generation Brands (GB), and Quad-C is still the owners of GB and Sea Gull Lighting.
Sea Gull Lighting relocated its head office to Skokie, IL in summer 2012 - together with several other brand names within the UK organisation at a single site. The move will enable the business to maximise cash and operating efficiency through common functionality while the two Sea Gull DCs that stay in NJ and NV will maintain the goods flows and cargo efficiency.
In 2012 Sea Gull Lighting was again awarded the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award. The main emphasis of Sea Gull Lighting continues to be the supply of trendy, high value lighting solutions with unrivalled levels of client services and uptime. Looking forward to the developing commercial world, Sea Gull Lighting, with its continuing dedication to serving, listening to and learning from its esteemed clients, is ready for the next step into its second world.
