PEMBA, INC WAS STARTED BY PATRICIA AND P. MICHAEL SMITH

SINCE JULY 1997

OUR STORY

OUR HISTORY

Our journey started reviewing and stamping electrical plans and because of our automation and engineering education, we were asked to help to plan and design the lighting and a lighting control system. We quickly learned that the contractors needed help with selecting lighting.
 
Our business grew when others began requesting our services and work expanded to include audio-video and complete automation solutions.  
    
We sought others to join our team, and after Katrina we took over a lighting showroom and electrical distribution business.
 
At PEMBA, we regularly evaluate new electrical, lighting, sound & automation products. We provide lighting design and engineering services, and go to market twice a year to bring new lighting & automation products to our customers.
 
PEMBA is a member of various organizations including CEDIA where we are a Registered Outreach instructor to provide training on various automation solutions to the trades.

Our team has a mix of skills and talents to help you with your project.

At PEMBA we specialize in lighting, sound and automation and provide attention to architectural and design details to enhance and add value to your surroundings.​

 

We specialize in design, but, since PEMBA is a distributor for many lighting and automation lines, we provide very competitive materials prices to electrical and general contractors. Take advantage of our knowledge and good prices.

 

At PEMBA we think it is rare to find good service, good prices, and competent, experienced personnel, but these things are very important to us. You do not need to compromise.

\  Lighting Design

PEMBA provides design services in engineering, lighting, and automation and regularly works with design and construction professionals to incorporate lighting and technology.

 

Lighting design is both technical and art. It is the application of quantity and type of light to a space. Lighting design should be used to illuminate and enhance. Light itself is important but the effects of light are of greater importance in our daily lives.

 

Patricia develops and presents human-centric lighting training courses for design and construction professionals.

ROBERT & MARY L.

"It is a pleasure to work with the Staff of PEMBA. They were the lead audio /video design and installation team for our 'rest of our life' / dream home construction. Their staff walked us thru the possibilities available in this technical age. And they were able to make the products and functions 'user friendly' for a couple in their late 60s. And, most importantly, they were available to work thru the inevitable 'bugs' as we became using all of the system's potentials. Their follow-up when we called is and was superior. We can recommend the PEMBA team without reservation."
