Meeting Lighting First!

Our showroom dealers are vital to the success of the Fanimation brand. Many, like Lighting First, are also family-owned businesses, giving us a special kinship and appreciation for one another.

Meet Lighting First—part of Fanimation’s “extended” family.

  • Owners: Brothers Greg and Steve Adams
  • Location: Florida (Naples, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers)
  • Number of Locations: 3
  • How Lighting First Got Started: Greg and Steve’s grandfather manufactured portable lamps, so it was only natural that their parents, Vince and Barb, would open a lighting business. The initial Lighting First store opened in 1984 as Factory Firsts. Both Steve and Greg worked in the warehouse as teenagers, eventually joining the business on a larger scale in 2005. Today, their parents have retired and the brothers operate Lighting First’s three stores together.
  • Top-selling Fanimation Fans: Spitfire (Its interchangeable motors and blades make it a top-seller!), Levon and Odyn
  • Favorite Fanimation Fan: Torto (In Greg’s home!)
  • What You Like About Fanimation: “We’ve partnered with Fanimation for about 15 years and it’s been a great fit for both of us,” shares Greg. “Fanimation delivers great products that are backed by equally great service. It’s the same thing we try to do here.”

What We Should Know about Lighting First: “We are your one-stop shop for lighting and fans,” Greg says. “We have a wide range of choices and, from start to finish—selection to service—we’ve got everything you need.“
