Q&A

with

howard baldinger
president, hb lighting

How would you describe your business
in one sentence?

What differentiates your company from
its competitors in the marketplace?

We are a custom decorative lighting
manufacturer focused on producing high quality
fixtures using a wide variety of materials and
finishes for public space, guestroom, and highend residential lighting.

Decorative lighting helps evoke emotions and is
an integral part of any designed space. Custom
lighting is an opportunity for a designer to
express their creative concepts on behalf of the
owner. Our extensive experience and broad
range of manufacturing techniques give us
the opportunity to work with many talented
designers to offer solutions that turn their ideas
into a manufactural product.

What sets us apart is our knowledge of the
industry and our capabilities to produce a wide
range of high-quality fixtures. Our work, from
large-scale ornate pendants for hotel lobbies
to small-scale portable lights for guestrooms,
is a representation of our expertise. We have
engineers, craftsman and quality control onsite
at our fully integrated 30,000 square foot factory
in Bronx, New York. Here we bend, weld, polish,
and finish fixtures and decorative metalwork
using our state-of-the-art, automated and hand
operated machinery. In addition to domestic
manufacturing, for value engineering and budget
conscious solutions, we have an import division
with worldwide sourcing overseen directly by HB
Lighting Quality Control personnel.

What are some best practices you
employ in your business?

How does your company look today
compared to five years ago?

Open communication and everyone
working together. Working in an open office
environment alongside our factory makes
everyone more approachable. We can easily
follow the process from start to finish and it
helps to get things done much faster. Email
is quick and convenient, but I am a believer
in having face-to-face time or picking up the
phone to talk. We encourage the same open
communication with our clients.

A lot has changed in five years! After the sale of
my family's 117 year old manufacturing company
in 2010, I hired the best of the best from my former
company. With our collective experience we
continued producing the highest of quality light
fixtures. Since then, we have successfully been able
to maintain our position as a leading source for
custom decorative lighting. HB Lighting has grown
exponentially and as we continue to grow, we have
expanded our team to welcome new business
opportunities.

What is your philosophy on custom?
