Tom Cullerton tours Roselle lighting manufacturing facility

Tom Cullerton Sternberg LightingState Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park), visited Sternberg Lighting’s Roselle production facility and headquarters Monday.  Sternberg Lighting manufactures and sells architectural and exterior lighting installations.

“It is important that we appreciate the vital role that manufacturing plays maintaining economic stability and employment security in our communities,” Cullerton said.

Sternberg Lighting has been an important source of manufacturing and engineering jobs in Chicagoland since it was established in 1923. The 150,000 square foot facility is specially designed to reduce heating and cooling costs and optimize natural light.

“We were excited to have Senator Tom Cullerton visit us this afternoon.  His interest in meeting our people and touring our manufacturing facility was appreciated,” Joe Waldau, president and CEO of Sternberg Lighting, said. “He shared information on legislative work in Springfield that would help Illinois manufacturers and also listened intently to our concerns and suggestions.”

“This company started with men banging out metal by hand and now it is pioneering energy efficient lighting. It is always impressive to see businesses that merge technology, tradition and craftsmanship together so well,” Cullerton said.
