    New Construction

    WESCO Lighting’s many years of industry experience include a special focus on new construction projects. They also include a special understanding and insight into the unique needs and pressures of our new construction customers.

    A Partner You Can Rely On

    WESCO employs a multi-layer approach towards construction projects which begins with local sales reps, lighting quotes teams, and project managers who engage local agency relationships. Our sales and district leaders provide guidance and enlist support from our national construction lighting team. This group is also supported behind the scenes by a lighting category team engaged in facilitating manufacturer relationships. Ultimately our solutions are delivered by a branch network and logistics process that strategically manages the release of product for the project.
