SAME DAY SHIPPING AND VAST INVENTORIES
At STANDARD, we are committed to our same day shipping policy. All orders placed before noon will ship that same day. While we always strive for same day service, orders placed after the cut-off time will be shipped the next day, only after we have made every effort to provide same day service for you.
Delivering the goods means much more to us than providing quick and reliable transportation. It means meeting your particular warehousing and fulfillment requirements for each shipment so you can stay focused on growing your business while we help manage your inventory.

We continue to seek out advanced lighting technologies that address the market concerns of our clientele with a large focus on energy efficient products. With 17 product categories – Ballasts, Compact Fluorescent, Fluorescent, HID, Halogen, Incandescent, LED, Miniature, Safety Max coated lamps, Optics, Stage and Studio, Halogen Projection, lamps for Multimedia applications, Medical, Sealed Beam, Sockets and Accessories, and Fixtures - we can service all lighting requirements. In addition, we offer energy saving retrofit kits, CFL fixtures and many other specialty items. Since lighting needs are not the same for everyone, STANDARD offers a broad range of green choices to adapt to the needs and requirements of all lighting systems. We invite you to peruse through our e-catalog and if you cannot find the product you are looking for please call our customer service staff and it will be their pleasure to find it for you.
