The Residential Solutions Group from Fromm Electric Supply, Reading, Pa., won the Meritorious Award for residential lighting control at the Contractor of the Year Gala for the Bucks-Montgomery (Pa.) Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

The award recognized Fromm's lighting and control system design in collaboration with Gehman Custom Remodeling of Harleysville, Pa.

“It was a great experience to work with a contractor who shared a creative vision and was receptive to the innovation used in dimming technology”, says Ranae Borden, Fromm's senior lighting design specialist. Borden specified all lighting and developed the control system for the project.

Fromm has three design centers that cater to the building and remodeling industry, as well as electrical contractors. “As the new home building market declines, remodeling will increase”, says Jon H. Gerhart, vice president of Fromm's Residential Solutions Group. “Partnering on unique projects is extremely rewarding and this recognition from NARI is icing on the cake.”
