Guess Who’s Turning 90!

Whether you call him Chairman of the Board, patriarch, leader, colleague or friend, one thing is certain, Ira Phillips has made his mark in the lighting industry.

As we celebrate his 90th year, it’s a great time to reflect on what an impact he has made, all the accolades he has received and all of the endearing friendships he has cultivated.

Known as the “PT Barnum of the Lighting Industry,” Ira Phillips joined Quoizel in 1964 and since then has led it through extraordinary growth by expanding the product mix and providing innovative merchandising strategies to retailers. Phillips acquired full ownership in 1986. Today, Quoizel remains a privately held, family-owned and operated business offering more than 2,000 items in its full line catalog.
