Quoizel’s Pre-Buy Event

Quoizel will host 22 customers to Quoizel’s Pre-Buy, an event that spans over a 3-week period.

It’s a unique opportunity for customers to view, critique and order merchandise that will be presented in January at our Dallas market.  This helps us determine what items we might need to order more or less of.  When speaking to management, China’s New Year falls on January 23rd this year, and all the factories shut down for weeks of celebration.  Therefore, if we know ahead of time to order more of a certain “hot” item, we will be able to fill and handle the orders from the January 2012 market, which is the largest market for the lighting industry.

The Importance of Focused Lighting

Providing sufficient lighting inside your home is much more than adding a few lamps. The difference between a house and a home is the attention to detail that you put into each aspect of the home’s design. When it comes to lighting, keep the same perspective in mind. To show you the importance of focused lighting, we have tackled the challenging project of lighting a basement game room.

Basements are notoriously dark and dreary because of the lack of windows.  At the same time however, this makes them the easiest to improve. Consider the project of lighting a game room. There must be sufficient lighting around the game table or other main area, so that players can see the game.


Ugliest Lighting Contest

Leveraging the popularity of the recent ugliest dog competition, Quoizel and Build.com collaborated to find America’s ugliest lighting fixture.  Over the course of several weeks, voters cast their votes via Facebook in three contests: Ugliest Bathroom Fixture, Ugliest Outdoor Fixture, and Ugliest Indoor Fixture.   The winner of each contest was accompanied by a Build.com representative on a shopping spree to replace their ugly fixture with a new Quoizel fixture.  The contest was a huge success with Build.com having more than 850,000 impressions (including comments, votes, entries, etc.), and we were more than happy to help these customers dispose of their ugly fixtures!


Increasing Productivity & Saving Money

Eddie Plowden, Marketing Manager at Berkeley Electric Cooperative, recently met with Rick Seidman, CEO of Quoizel Lighting, to present a rebate check for $43,000 resulting from changes that Quoizel made as part of BEC’s Commercial & Industrial Lighting Program.

Quoizel has upgraded the warehouse lighting to take advantage of more energy efficient lighting.  The 400W metal halide lights have recently been replaced with fluorescent high bays, purchased from Texas Fluorescents.  The new fluorescent lighting can instantly achieve full brightness and can be controlled by timers and dimmers to maximize energy efficiency.  First year expected savings from this “green” upgrade is approximately $100,000.
