About Us

For over 45 years, Crest Lighting has turned thousands of unique lighting needs into thousands of satisfied customers. Many of our clients credit our unmatched product selection, our commitment to energy efficiency and our affordable pricing. We credit our people. They are the most knowledgeable in the Midwest for all things electrical. Whether you’re a contractor, designer, or a homeowner, our friendly professionals are eager to help you make smart lighting and electrical decisions.

Since joining forces with Paramont EO Inc. in 2013, Crest Lighting is large enough to furnish multi- million dollar projects, yet small enough to be nimble and flexible to meet your daily needs. What hasn’t changed is that we are still a family owned and operated business with a commitment to service, knowledge of product, and in-stock selection as our top priorities.

It’s been a wonderful journey since our humble beginnings. Here are some of our milestones over the years:


1964

Evergreen Oak Electric Supply and Sales Company was established, with ambitions to become the premier electrical distribution partner for electrical contractors throughout Chicagoland.

1969

A new division, Crest Lighting, was formed to serve the decorative lighting needs of builders, developers, and retail customers.

1982

Paramont Electric Supply opened for business and quickly became a dominant supplier in the commercial industrial market.

1987

Our Chicago branch was opened in the Wrigleyville area to serve the bustling downtown and burgeoning neighborhoods throughout city.

1996

To meet the needs of the expanding southwest suburbs, we opened our New Lenox location where we enjoy working with builders and homeowners to enlighten their projects!

2013

Evergreen Oak Electric & Crest Lighting merged with Paramont ES to form Paramont EO & Crest Lighting--Chicago's leading lighting supplier!

Paramont EO and Crest Lighting have grown significantly in scope and in reach, but our corporate mission remains unchanged since 1964. We are committed to continuous improvement, guided by the fundamental values of teamwork and mutual respect for the employee, customer, and vendor.

We invite you to visit us in person, and through our web site, and welcome your feedback and questions. We look forward to showing you that Paramont EO and Crest Lighting are “Your Source for Everything Electrical."
