Why LightCorp

LightCorp is a company born of necessity. Under the Shape family of companies, we were founded in 1986 when a customer needed a lighting solution they couldn't find anywhere else. Since then, we've been a consistent supplier of entrepreneurial thinking, quality manufacturing, and unmatched follow-through.

The perfect lighting stimulates the senses and inspires the imagination. It’s not only beautiful to admire, but also creatively useful. When it’s perfect, you’ll know the moment it’s on.

Passion in full supply

Our lighting solutions are powered by the people who design, engineer, build, and ship them. If you're looking for attributes, we've got them in full supply: passion, entrepreneurial thinking, resourcefulness, and creativity. More importantly, our associates are just good folks to be around. Without them, we wouldn't be here.

Our core values:

  • Transparent - Generous, honest and open communication with our partners and each other.
  • Reliable - Consistently doing what we say we will.
  • Unforgettable - Extraordinary exchanges with our partners and each other. 
  • Selfless - Adopting a servant spirit of humility.
  • Thinkers - Curious, resourceful learners who think like owners.


LightCorp is rooted in the heart of West Michigan at the epicenter of workplace design. It’s where advanced research, design leadership, manufacturing excellence, friendly service, and old-fashioned ingenuity began and was established as the foundation of our approach. Because of this, the highest quality products are crafted here, in our local facilities with a mentality that support is only a phone call away. 


To live out our core value of Selflessness and honor the legacy of our founder, Gary Verplank — we believe in giving back to our community. LightCorp encourages its associates to make a difference by giving up to eight paid hours per year to volunteer for charitable organizations within our surrounding community. It's about more than leaving our neighborhood better than how we found it — it's who we are as a company.
