Message From Our President

In this fast pace world of internet technology and social media an individual’s business concept along with a small amount of venture capital can launch a very established and professional looking company virtually overnight. With that being said, I am proud to say that Star Design Lighting is a brick and mortar company that has been built one piece at a time since 1990.

I consider Star Design Lighting to be a relatively self-contained company in the fact that we own and maintain the majority of the equipment that we use so that we have confidence in its functionality, we own our own fleet of trucks so that we can streamline transportation concerns and we keep a staff of fulltime and part time employees so that we can staff events with technicians that are skilled in the Star Design Lighting way of operations to assure a good value to our clients.

My philosophy for Star Design Lighting is very simple: Treat every event as if it is the most important event that you will ever do.
