Armchem International, a business-to-business provider of specialty industrial and maintenance products, has launched a new commercial lighting division.
The company will carry over 4,000 varieties of lighting products, covering numerous categories, such as LED, halogen, compact fluorescent, metal halide, high pressure sodium, miniatures and ballast.
Archem has tapped lighting industry veteran Dean Schwerdt to help grow the division. He comes to the company after serving seven years with the lighting manufacturer, Osram/Sylvania.
“We are excited about this new area of growth for Armchem,” says Armchem CEO Andrew Brahms. “Over the last thirty years, the cornerstone of our business has been to provide our clients with anything they need. Adding lighting to the mix increases our MRO capabilities and allows businesses to focus on what they do best instead of having to deal with multiple vendors and time consuming procurement."
