Maxim Lighting: Low Price Guarantee

About Maxim Lighting

Since its founding in 1970, Maxim Lighting has functioned as a closely knit family. Their commitment to understanding and meeting the needs of each and every member of their “family” brought Maxim Lighting up to be one of the top names in the lighting industry.

Maxim Lighting was started by Jacob Sperling, a student studying aeronautical engineering, after he realized, from working as a sales associate for a lighting retailer, that customer satisfaction led to innovation in both design and utility. Jacob starting by designing and creating his own fixtures in his garage and selling them locally. Demand for Jacob’s designs increased and he starting selling his products throughout California from the back of his station wagon. Eventually, Jacob asked his brother, Zvi Sperling, to help him create a business focused on customer satisfaction. Maxim Lighting had been born.

By 1975, Maxim Lighting expanded out of Jacob’s garage and moved into a 100,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Los Angeles. By 1989, Maxim Lighting had grown to over 400 employees and, a couple years later, opened an official Maxim Lighting office in China. Jacob now splits his time between the West Coast, and traveling in Asia, searching for alternative materials and Zvi heads the marketing and customer satisfaction side of the business. Today, Maxim Lighting continues to expand and look for new ways to design functional and appealing lighting and new ways to serve their customers.

What stands Maxim Lighting out in the crowd from the other lighting manufacturers is their concept of treating employees and customers like family.
