Landscape Forms Announces New Sales Representatives in Southern California for Lighting and Site Furnishings
Kalamazoo, MI – April 6, 2016 - Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-design site furniture and advanced LED lighting, has announced agreements with David Silverman & Associates, Inc. (DSA) of Glendale and Grant &Associates, Inc. of San Diego to represent Landscape Forms furniture and lighting in the Southern California region. “Lighting is core to Landscape Forms’ strategy for growth,” declares Richard Heriford, President of Landscape Forms. “Since we first introduced lighting products in 2010 we have rapidly gained design and performance recognition among both customers and industry leaders. Our new distribution approach in Southern California supports our message of offering coordinated lighting and furniture collections, expands our sales team, and partners Landscape Forms with representatives who are experts in the lighting field.”
Firm principals Bill Gonzales of DSA and Gordon Grant of Grant & Associates have decades of combined experience as lighting specialists with keen understanding of the relationship between furniture and lighting. “For 45 years our products were represented by Chaparral, led by Larry Casey, who helped grow our business in Southern California,” explains Landscape Forms Vice President of Sales Jamie May. “Now as they plan to retire we have formidable shoes to fill and are partnering with two highly successful independent groups that can help us continue our growth in a product market that is important to our company going forward.”
In just six years Landscape Forms has leveraged innovations in LED technology, engineering expertise and intelligence about the environmental impacts of outdoor lighting to develop an award-winning group of LED lighting solutions for a range of applications. Landscape Forms product offerings include collections with lighting designs by Designworks (A BMW Group Company), Robert A. M. Stern Associates, Yves Behar and Francisco Gomez Paz, as well as universal lights compatible with the wide array of distinguished site furniture for which the company is known. The company welcomes DSA and Grant & Associates who will begin representing Landscape Forms furniture and lighting products in Southern California on April 4, 2016.
