START, a commercial and industrial lighting manufacturer is known for designing and producing quality lighting fixtures while having the flexibility to modify fixtures to address customer needs and designing new fixtures to fit unique applications specific to customers, is selectively expanding its rep network.
Said Jason Barbour, CEO of START, “I’ve been in the Denver market for over 25 years, first starting in the electrical distribution industry and for the past 10 leading lighting manufacturers. I’ve known Tim Cuneo for over 20 years and he leads the most talented rep agency in the market. I’ve since met his team and they are extremely knowledgeable about the marketplace from distributors to end-users and contractors and the lighting specification market. I’m excited about the opportunity of working with them to grow the market.”
Tim Cuneo, the president of CET, stated “We’ve been wanting to startegically expand our lighting offering and, after learning more about START and speaking with some of our key distributors, felt that this was a very good fit. My team felt START has a quality, comprehensive product offering, was very customer-oriented and could rapidly respond to our needs. Having known Jason for many years I know he is a man of his word, believes in the rep model and understands distributor needs. He is also one of the most creative lighting management and salesperson I’ve ever met. We look forward to growing the business with him and his team.”
