    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:
