As anyone familiar with the project knows, it was a complex and demanding design on a difficult and unusual site. The design process involved a great deal of detailed preparation and the input of numerous participants. Your assistance on the overall lighting design, both interior and exterior, was consistently valuable, as were your many fixture recommendations.
The construction of the home, which has taken upwards of two years to complete, required the full commitment of the builder and his team, as well as dozens of sub-trades and suppliers. Needless to say, coordinating all of this was at times both difficult and frustrating. However, I can say without hesitation that working with you and your team at Norburn was a pleasure. You quickly earned our confidence with your professional approach and maintained that trust with timely support and follow-up.
As corny as it might sound, if every key supplier had a Norm Brown, my life would be a lot easier.
Thanks again for the help and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
I have had the pleasure of working with Carol Smith at Norburn Lighting in Langley on both residential and commercial applications. She has been a great source of knowledge and takes pride in her work. A proffesional that you know your clients are in good hands with.Thanks for making my job easier.

My wife and I designed our “dream home” in South Langley. For our lighting and plumbing needs, our Builder suggested we visit Norburn Lighting. We were so impressed with their selection that we ended up choosing lighting and plumbing fixtures for our entire house through their Surrey store. In addition to offering a wide range of choice, we were also very impressed with the product knowledge and customer service provided by Norburn’s Manager Carol Smith and her staff.

I have known Norm Brown for almost 20 years, and have always trusted his opinions for the location and types of lighting required to enhance the details of the custom homes that we build for our clients. With his outgoing personality, extensive knowledge of lighting products and lighting design, he is the only person that we recommend to our clients to work with for their lighting packages.

Dear Mr. Brown,
We have now completed our new house and would like to thank you and your group at Norburn.
From the your first review of our plans where you eliminated 25% of our lights but rearranged what we had and provided much better lighting solution than we would have had without that review.
Additionally, the competitive pricing you provided and very timely delivery of our orders, made your organization stand out among the many suppliers we utilized.

I want to thank Laurie Harley for the great help in assisting me in the lighting and plumbing needs for my store. I tried all the big box stores and wholesalers but was only able to get what I needed at Norburn. Stock and service! What a concept.

Over the years I have used many lighting suppliers through different organizations in my architecture, design and project management career. What I believe in and expect for a lighting supplier is customer service, knowledge, and leadership. This I got from Norburn Lighting in the past fourteen years. The best part of it is that many of the people that I deal other than the manager at Norburn Lighting have been working there for many years. This tells you something about how the business operates. The size of the lighting store is not a mega lighting store but do provide a great selection of interior and exterior lighting. It helps if you are dealing with knowledgeable people and a great leader. This leader I am referring to is Norm Brown who manages a few of the Norburn locations. What I like about this guys is his knowledge on lighting. He is a Certified Lighting Consultant and is part of the American Lighting Association. He provides lighting designs and has taught my staff about lighting designs. I have been fortunate enough to know Norm for over twenty years since the Guillevin International Co formally Gough Electric. He provided me the service and the straight goods time and time again and have saved a lot of money on lighting that I followed him. Not that I listen to him all the time…..certainly we have difference of opinions on lighting but that is half the fun in debates.

We found the outstanding customer service provided by Norburn to be above and beyond all of our expectations. From start to finish – Jim Wong went out of his way to provide us with exceptional assistance and follow up to ensure we were completely satisfied. The competence, experience, product and design knowledge of Norburn Lighting staff enabled us to install a superior lighting system that has more than met our needs in every aspect. By working with Norburn Lighting we achieved superlative results and we would highly recommend their company to everyone.

For several years now I have been working with Norburn Lighting and Bath in their Burnaby location. I always think of them first when designing a client’s kitchen or bathroom. Without a doubt they supply me with the best service in the lowermainland and for that reason I go out of my way to work with Alan Ladha at this location. Allan is responsible, knowledgeable and pleasant through out all of our business dealing and never do I feel that any request is too small. Along with Allan, the entire staff is helpful welcoming and very service oriented. Kudos to all of you for making every trip a happy experience.

Dear Sirs, We have been dealing with Norburn Lighting for as long as I have been in business as it is the one trusted lighting store I can fully rely on to assist my clients with their needs, whether it be new construction, renovations, purchase of new lighting or just information on current lighting trends. In particular over the past 2 years we refer clients and associates to Elizabeth Zunti. Her customer service skills, combined with excellent knowledge of all areas in lighting more than exceeds customer expectations and assists in taking the anxiety out of the process. We have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth and the staff at Norburn to our existing and future clients.
