E.B. Horsman Albrite Victoria Location

Albrite Lighting is a major supplier of commercial, institutional and industrial lighting products located in the heart of Victoria, BC. After being acquired by E.B Horsman & Son in 2013, Albrite Lighting has been slowly expanding its product portfolio. Today, we are excited to announce that Albrite’s Victoria location will become an E.B Horsman Albrite joint location offering Victoria customers access to a broader range of products and services.


“For over four decades, Albrite has serviced the customers of Vancouver Island and now, as an E.B. Horsman & Son location, have a complete line of complementary products to service the Victoria marketplace,” said Tyson Carvell, Vice President Marketing E.B. Horsman & Son. “Albrite’s great location and technical expertise in lighting, combined with our full line of electrical supplies, inventory strategies, and supplier partners, establish our fifth location on Vancouver Island as a destination for the best products, best people and best service.”


Before joining E.B. Horsman & Son, Albrite Lighting focused on providing lighting and energy management products to customers throughout the province. Today, Albrite is a BC Hydro Powersmart expert and stocks a wide range of lighting products from trusted manufacturers, such as Philips Lighting, Cooper Lighting, Hazlux, Emergilite, Edwards and Federal Signal ensuring its customers receive great value and reliability.


The evolution of the Victoria branch into a full line E.B. Horsman operation will provide both Albrite and E.B. Horsman customers with easy access to a wider range of top quality electrical products, including those produced by industry leaders such as Siemens, Thomas & Betts, Leviton, Stelpro, IPEX, Southwire and Rittal. The goal is to deliver a seamless experience that ensures customers always leave satisfied and with the complete scope of products they need.


“Our Victoria team is excited to be taking part in the transition and we look forward to a prosperous future serving E.B. Horsman and Albrite customers,” Carvell explained. “Our renovation is complete and the branch is now open with the full complement of electrical products. We are already getting fantastic feedback from our electrical contractor base, excitement is brewing!” The expansion of the product lines to be carried in the Victoria location will provide the local marketplace with access to some of the best electrical products available anywhere.


The Albrite team will continue to serve their existing customer base with an emphasis on customer service and providing innovative products. Additional E.B. Horsman’s resources will be put into place to support the sale of traditional electrical products for residential, commercial and industrial markets.
