About Us


At Hinsdale Lighting we provide you with a small, personal staff, all of whom possess both technical and design expertise; but most importantly, they all share in the same desire to help you make good decisions right from the start. 

In short, lighting is all we have done for 15 years, so knowing how to execute a great lighting project is simply what we do best. We look forward to serving you.
