35 Years and Still Training America’s Lighting Distributors

The National Association of Independent Lighting Distributors, or NAILD for short, is celebrating it’s 35th year of training members of the Lighting Industry.

   The National Association of Independent Lighting Distributors (NAILD) was founded in 1977 by a small group of lighting distributors looking for a way to provide training and education to the staff of independent lighting distributors across the United States. Since it’s founding, NAILD has grown to well over 180 members. Membership in the association is made up of Specialty Lighting Distributors from across the country and Vendor/Manufacturers of lighting goods & supplies used in the operation of specialized lighting distributors. From compact fluorescent, metal halide, high pressure sodium, to now LED Lighting, NAILD has been the industry’s training organization.     

      Some of the main objectives of NAILD are to increase the effectiveness of the specialized lighting distributor through educational programs; to make available to members information pertaining to the distribution of lighting products; to develop marketing plans and programs through an exchange of ideas, networking and promote the need for and the benefits of providing quality lighting. Only Lighting Distributors and Vendor Distributors meeting NAILD’s requirements are invited to join NAILD. 

    One of the original founding members of NAILD was the late Joe Stevens, of Stevens Lighting Supply in Clearwater, Florida. In 2001, Frontier Lighting aquired Stevens Lighting Supply and felt that it was our responsibility to continue the legacy and efforts started by Joe Stevens and the other founding members and Frontier Lighting has been an active member since 2001, attending the annual training conferences which consist of Industry speakers, business round tables, and lighting training classes, and Frontier Lighting continues to participate in the training programs offered by the NAILD organization.   

  Some of the vendors that are associated with NAILD are:

  • Osram Sylvania
