SoCal:  Kore Controls & LIGHT,  join forces to create Kore LIGHT, a fresh alternative for the Southern California lighting and controls market


“Lit by Passion. Powered by Partnership.” is more than just Kore LIGHT’s tagline. It is how this newly branded manufacturers’ representative agency in Southern California came to be. The merging of LIGHT and Kore Controls now gives the commercial lighting industry a powerful alternative when it comes to specifying and procuring both lighting fixtures and controls.

LIGHT, a 35-year-old Manufacturers’ Representative Agency in Torrance, CA has a solid reputation for providing the highest level of solutions-based customer service in the industry. One of LIGHT’s greatest strengths is its highly curated line card that focuses on quality representation over quantity. Providing time and attention to manufacturers, customers, and partners, through a highly personalized approach is the basis of LIGHT’s long-standing relationships throughout the industry.

Kore Controls is a Manufacturers’ Representative Agency in Irvine, CA, and is the Crestron Commercial Lighting Controls Representative for Southern California. Kore Controls was launched in 2018 as a spin-off from its sister company Kore Logix, a 20-year-old Crestron Service Provider based in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Kore Controls team is highly specialized in lighting controls and performs & manages all services locally and in-house. Services such as T24 compliance, fully engineered controls quotes and submittals, startups & commissioning, and ongoing customer service & support are all performed by a Southern California team, who are truly experts in Commercial Lighting Controls.

Kore LIGHT is the culmination of that 50+ years of industry experience, between LIGHT & Kore, which translates into a fresh alternative for the Southern California market. Kore LIGHT will be changing how the Manufacturers’ Rep Agency business model is locally perceived. Kore LIGHT is Powered by its Partnerships and draws its success and energy from being a trusted firm that people want to work with.

Jason Schanta, Principal of LIGHT, and Tom Fischer, CEO of Kore Controls, will helm the newly branded entity of Kore LIGHT. Schanta, with 30 years in the lighting industry, and Fischer, with 28 years in the controls industry, now unite their teams to create a full-service agency that will surely be turning some heads.

“The industry is ready for a change; business is no longer done the way it was 20, even 10 years ago. Manufacturers’ Reps, in many cases, have earned a reputation that isn’t exactly glowing. Kore LIGHT’s mission is to change that perspective through being true partners with our customers.” according to Fischer.

“Everyone we work with is our customer, especially our manufacturer partners. This value proposition has been one of the keys to our success, through the years. It’s why we have solid, long-term relationships in all aspects of our business.” said Schanta. “We are very particular who we represent, we want to make sure that we are a great fit and we can truly grow our businesses’ together.”
