Architectural Outdoor Lighting Solutions featuring Gardco and Emco Luminaires and Poles

Outdoor Lighting Products and Information for the Professional Lighting Designer

About Us is the website of Gardco Lighting and Emco Lighting, two premiere commercial outdoor lighting manufacturers.

Gardco Lighting was founded in San Francisco, California by Reed Gardner in 1961. Originally started as a custom lighting manufacturer, Gardco pioneered many of the outdoor lighting concepts, components and products that have become standards in the industry, including the "shoebox" luminaire, faceted optics, cutoff luminaires, glowtop products and the "template" method of designing outdoor lighting layouts. Today, Gardco continues to develop innovative, high-quality outdoor luminaires for the professional lighting designer and specifier market.

Emco Lighting was founded in Milan, Illinois as an alternative to higher priced luminares.

Sales for Gardco and Emco outdoor lighting products is done through independent lighting sales agents. Although independent, we consider them our partners and work closely with them to deliver a satisfying experience for our customer - from specifier to end-user.

Today, we maintain a 260,000 square foot manufacturing facility in San Marcos, Texas. We are proud to be a part of the Genlyte Group and its parent corporation, Philips.

With worldwide sales of over $80 million, we continue to provide quality outdoor lighting instruments to a discerning professional lighting specifiers.
