All of the raw materials in the lighting industry are bought at the same places. The only difference is which company is the greediest, which I can guarantee is not us. My name is Michael Hanna and I am the owner and founder of SO CAL Lighting. I myself have been in this industry since 1994 and I am never hard to reach if you have any questions or problems with your purchase, or have any questions in general. My brothers David, Joseph and Joshua are also here to satisfy all of our customers by any means necessary. Since we were young, through our strong family values and ethics regarding hard work, we have been providing top notch service that combined makes for over 20 years of quality customer service. May God bless all of us.
