Atlanta Light Bulbs

Celebrating 40 Years

Since 1981, Atlanta Light Bulbs has supplied light bulbs, ballasts and light fixtures to commercial, industrial, and residential customers in the Atlanta metro and worldwide. The company was started by our founder, Gary Root. In the early 80's Gary paid close attention to customers' needs and was able to capture market share by putting the customer first.

By the early 1990s, the company relocated to a larger facility, featuring a lighting showroom and warehouse space. This new warehouse space stocked the ever-expanding and diversifying lighting inventory demanded by our growing customer base: Specialty lamps, projector lamps, medical lamps, European bulbs, miniature lamps, light fixtures, and lighting installations.

Atlanta Light Bulbs became a leader in lighting the Atlanta skyline through its competitive prices and ability to source globally. In 1998, the launch of enabled the company to provide its vast product knowledge, inventory, and value to a national and international market. One of the first companies in Atlanta to offer its inventory and services online, alongside the launch of the BulbMatrix, Atlanta Light Bulbs grew into a premier online lighting supplier.

In 2015, ALB Energy Solutions was formed as a response to shifting market dynamics toward energy-efficient lighting and a request from our commercial and industrial customers for more “consultative solutions.” With solutions backed by over 35 years of solid experience in commercial lighting distribution, along with a full line of strategically sourced, energy efficient innovative technologies, we are well positioned to offer these services.

While our main objective is to help customers conserve energy used by lighting, we also have an extensive knowledge base and portfolio to offer our customers both new and innovative technologies as well as traditional and alternative lighting sources to make the most of their lighting budgets. Comprehensive services include:

The ALB Lighting & Energy Solutions facility houses corporate offices, wholesale counter and sales division, national and international sales divisions, regional solutions sales divisions, distribution center, and a state of the art energy efficiency showroom that allows customers to test and view emerging products and technologies.
