West Warwick, RI – Global Value Lighting, the premier private-label LED lighting solutions provider with a comprehensive portfolio of over 200 products, is making its debut at LIGHTFAIR 2017. GVL is supported by their partner Lighting Science’s intellectual property portfolio including 400+ patents, and have the most competitive factory-direct pricing thanks to their recent joint venture with Chinese manufacturer MLS, one of the largest global LED manufacturers.

GVL stands out amongst its competitors because it offers companies the benefits of working directly with an established Chinese manufacturer, bypassing multi-tiered pricing, while working directly through a US-based team complete with an R&D division (Lighting Science), a sales and marketing team, and a customer service group focused on optimizing utility rebates.

“We are bringing the best of both worlds to our customers,” said Lighting Science Chief Executive Officer Ed Bednarcik. “We can deliver an excellent product, at the most competitive price, with US-backed operations, distribution and customer service.”

From the award-winning Durabulb™ to best-in-class filament LEDs in over 200 styles, Global Value Lighting is committed to providing retailers with cutting-edge, high-quality, sustainable LED technology at an outstanding value for their customers. GVL will sell its products under its retail partners’ private label brands in locations across North and South America.
