Indoff is proud to announce that they are officially expanding into the energy solutions market.

“The lighting and energy industry is undergoing a major transition that allows consumers to use energy much more efficiently. By opening the door to this industry, Indoff Sales Partners will have the opportunity to offer their customers many cost-saving solutions,” says Division Vice President, John Vasquez.

Indoff’s Energy Solutions division is focused on lighting initially, but its Partners will have access to a wide range of products from LED solutions to solar panels to spot coolers. This wide variety of offerings is consistent with Indoff’s tradition of providing total solutions to its customers.

“We have been in the lighting and energy solutions business for a while,” explains Indoff President, Jim Malkus. “But we think the time is right to make a concentrated effort to grow this portion of our business. Providing our customers with help in reducing their energy consumption, costs and carbon footprint is an exciting opportunity for us.”

Indoff is headquartered in St. Louis, Mo and has Sales Partners located throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada. Indoff has been serving the needs of both the industry and office for over 40 years.
