We are one of the nation's largest Philips Lamp distributors

As one of the Nation's largest Philips Lamp distributors, we offer their entire line of products and stock the area's widest selection of lamps. Not only do we stock traditional items such as fluorescent tubes, incandescent lamps, or HID lamps, but we also stock an incredible amount of Energy Saving products including LEDs, CFL lamps, Super T8s, and color improved lamps for retail settings.

For the Medical and Dental industry, we stock a variety of miniature lamps from Osram-Sylvania, Eiko, Ushio, and offer a complete line of exam fixtures.

School boards, Audio Visual departments, and theatrical communities aren't left in the dark either. We offer a vast variety of A/V lamps, LCD projectors, and we are able to supply you with your stage and studio lighting needs.

In addition to Philips Lamps, we offer the most sustainable products for your retrofit projects; this includes: dimming switches, daylight harvesting, and occupancy sensor systems from Lutron and Sensor Switch; High Performance Ballasts from Universal + Advance; LED bulbs, fixtures, and retrofit kits from Hubbell Lighting.

For new construction and remodeling industries, we offer the area's premier Commercial Lighting departments. Staffed with lighting specialists, including two NCQLP Lighting Certified specialists (LC), and a LEED AP, we offer one of the Nation's most complete lines of products available! There is no project we can't assist you with, and there definitely isn't a task where we can't save you money. Our in-house expertise and technology affords us the ability to design your lighting plan and provide detailed, photometric data, including "point-by-point" printouts. We are further able to assist your architect or lighting designer by incorporating the lighting layout and other job details within their dxf file. Having been the sole lighting supplier for projects such as the National Institute of Health at Johns Hopkins Bayview, Annapolis Town Center, Oakdale High School, and the C4ISR Center for Excellence, we have completed some of the largest lighting projects ever built in the area. We are fully equipped to handle the lighting needs for your custom home to the 1st Mariner Arena.

Just as there is almost no lighting fixture or lamp we can't supply, there is almost no request we can't service or price we can't beat! As the world responds to the current global, economic climate, and awakens to the need for greater energy independence, CNR stands ready!
