16500 has been representing the world’s leading lighting companies since 1998. Our team now includes more than 70 professionals who bring a wide range of experience and technical knowledge to every project. We’ve built a reputation for innovation, consistency and an extraordinary level of customer service.
We believe our Northern California location near tech-savvy Silicon Valley is a key advantage. California leads the country in meeting strict energy codes, and we have teamed with our manufacturers to develop products that meet stringent requirements.
To all our clients and partners,
Please know that our first priority is the health and well-being of our employees, clients, partners, families and community during this crisis. Our second priority is keeping the economy in motion and doing everything we can to make sure our customers are able to keep their virtual doors open, their employees engaged and operations running as much as possible.
All 16500 employees are currently working regular business hours and working from home adhering to local mandates for social distancing, sheltering in place and CDC recommendations. In person sales visits are suspended through 4/7 while local restrictions are in place for essential travel only.
All our manufacturing partners as of today (3/17) are operational and shipping products. They have assured us that they are taking all necessary precautions to sanitize and sterilize work stations and to keep employees safe distances apart in order to keep production flowing. As the situation is fluid, please check our website often for updates. All existing open orders will be shipping during this time unless directed otherwise in writing by distribution.
In an effort to promote continuing education and provide value to our clients, we are offering as many product “how to” videos and live product demonstrations as possible. Our goal is to keep you informed on important product updates. Be sure to check our website daily for new video links and uploads. There will also be videos, links and articles to help stay connected, active and healthy as possible during this time. This will coincide with the launch of our new improved website at the same address, www.16500.com scheduled to be up and running by weeks end.
We are incredibly grateful to all of you in our community and will continue to do all we can to support you though this crisis.
