About Classic Lighting – Our History

Classic Lighting Products Inc. is a family owned and managed business that supplies lighting products, fixture parts and accessories. The company was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was established in 1977 by Victor Hawthorne who was heavily experienced in the electrical industry. Classic Lighting supplied parts to the thriving lamp manufacturing industry in BC.

As our business continued to grow, Classic Lighting moved to a larger facility in Burnaby. This location has allowed us to service our broad customer-base across Canada and the United States.
