Phoenix Lighting Adds St. Louis And Paducah To Distribution Network
Phoenix Lighting, a Milwaukee, Wis.-based manufacturer of LED lighting products for the marine market, announced two additions to its distribution network last week.
“The inland market moves upwards of 630 million tons of cargo annually and is investing heavily in vessel upgrades and new construction of energy efficient and alternate fuel vessels,” the company said in its May 10 announcement. “In order to ensure operators have local inventory and next-day availability of proven, marine-rated LED lighting, Phoenix is pleased to announce new distribution partnerships with Hannan Supply Company and Humco Marine Products Inc.”
Hannan Supply was established in 1968 and is located in Paducah, KY. Humco Marine Products has operated in St. Louis since 1966 and is a leader in maritime products. Both Hannan Supply and Humco Marine now maintain local inventory of Phoenix floodlights and navigation lights for the inland towboat and pushboat markets.
“Hannan Supply prides itself on offering superior products backed with local inventory in order to support inland operators,” said Todd Swinford, purchasing director of Hannan Supply. “We embraced the opportunity to partner with Phoenix and already can see the value we are able to provide to vessels operating throughout the region.”
Humco Marine Products has delivered quality workboat equipment since 1966, and its centralized location in St. Louis means fast delivery and support throughout the inland waterways and western rivers. “As more operators specify new construction to be equipped with complete Phoenix Lighting packages, Humco Marine will be positioned to provide the necessary spares and replacements as those boats transit the inland waterways,” said Glenn LaMarche, sales manager of Humco Marine.
In addition to these companies, Phoenix maintains a broad network of stocking distributors throughout the inland waterways. Phoenix Lighting is a member of The American Waterways Operators and has been serving the maritime industry since the 1970s.
