Engineered Lighting Products was established in 1985 to utilize new technology for developing more effective and efficient luminaires. Ralph Swarens, the founding president of E.L.P., has a degree in Illumination Engineering and Business from Oregon State University. Since 1961 he has worked in all phases of the lighting industry as representative, designer and consultant. In 1976 he started his own lighting consulting firm which ultimately served as the foundation to launch Engineered Lighting Products nine years later. Using his intimate, multilevel understanding of the lighting industry, Mr. Swarens created a professional, responsive manufacturing company to make quality lighting fixtures. When you combine superior fixture design that offers function, efficiency and aesthetics with knowledgeable, long term staff that provides timely assistance with lighting design, layout, technical questions and order servicing you have the reason for our continuing growth and success.
