Your local lco supplier would be a great start, then check your trade magazines, and then you could just do a little research. I would hope that no one would respond to your question in a public forum. I am sure some guys will find you if your profile is filled out.

Just know that if you can get a manufacturer's fixtures at wholesale cost, then that manufacturer is not committed to supporting a solid distribution network. Good distributors play an important role in the work of a landscape lighting professional. They do some or all of the following:

- Expeditite same-day supply of products
- Provide immediate hands-on support
- Expedite returns and service issues
- Provide credit
- Provide local referrals
- Provide a show room staffed with experts on the equipment they sell
- Sponsor local learning events
- Provide coop money for advertising
- Provide access to quality brands that are only available through distributors

If none of those things are important to you . . .

Providing Credit is the only service my local supplier for Cast Lighting does. Long live Century :hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead::hammerhead:
