After spending most of my life working in the pest control business, it’s tough to turn off the switch. That’s why I founded XtraBrite Lighting in January 2012 with a specific and focused vision: Purchase and resell black light lamps to pest control professionals.
XtraBrite Lighting has three goals:
1.) Purchase black light lamps directly from the manufacturer to ensure the best possible price
2.) Sell the lamps to Pest Management Professional at an exceptional value
3.) Align with a safety coating company to make this possible
I have spent 32 years working in pest control and have been associated with three different pest control companies. As a group we have purchased more than 100,000 black lights. Whether our intent was to resell the lamps to our customers for a profit or use them as part of our service, I was always uncomfortable paying what I considered to be an unfair price for the lamps, regardless if they were resold or not.
In the late 1970s and through the early- to mid-80s, our pest control companies only resold the lights to our clients who had previously purchased Insect Light Traps. By the end of the 80s we began incorporating the use of ILT’s as part of the pest control service work. This, of course, continues today. However, we found that the cost of replacement lamps were an expense that directly affected the company’s bottom line.
Today, XtraBrite is fulfilling our vision. We buy right, sell value and represent EncapSulite, one of the leading safety coating companies in the United States. To the best of my knowledge there are no ILT manufactures making fluorescent black lights. They purchase lights that are manufactured by GE, Osram-Sylvania, Phillips and Havells, among others.
We are committed to offering to you these same brand name products at an exceptional value and will keep you informed of new lighting technologies that affect your business and our environment. We want to be your primary resource for lamp replacements.
XtraBrite Lighting has established excellent buyer power and PMP’s can share in this advantage by making XtraBrite your No. 1 black light supplier.
