Atlanta Light Bulbs, Inc., a lighting distributor based in Tucker, Georgia (a suburb Northeast of Atlanta) faces Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding following a series of filings by three companies, including at least one lighting manufacturer to receive past debt from the distributor.
Atlanta Light Bulbs lists a number of NAED manufacturer companies in its product line, including Halco, Keystone Technologies, Lithonia Lighting, GE Lighting, Lutron, Maxlite, Philips, SATCO, EiKO, RAB Lighting, and Osram. The Atlanta Light Bulbs website says it has been a family business since 1981, supplies light bulbs, ballasts, and fixtures for commercial, residential, and industrial customers, and expanded into a large warehouse to meet customer needs back in the 1990’s. Atlanta Light Bulbs also posted this on their website for their customers:
“We’ve been in business since 1981 and have made it this far by being a brand and company that people can trust and are happy to shop with. Trust is earned and we don’t take that lightly. We pride ourselves in working with trusted suppliers and always back the product we sell. We are committed to quality. We are people first and operate our business with morals and virtue. We pride ourselves in honesty. We value and respect our customers and employees, the only way to build a lasting relationship.”
Halco filed its suit in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of Northern Georgia immediately on Friday, April 15. Halco claims Atlanta Light Bulb, Inc, owes them more than $300,000. As of Monday morning, April 18, there are no other filings from other lighting manufacturers related to this bankruptcy case.
