About Vision Quest Lighting

Vision Quest Lighting was founded over ten years ago by Larry Lieberman and has grown to become one of the largest custom lighting manufacturers in the United States.  With a client base that includes hotel and hospitality, national retail account brands, corporate offices and high-end residential projects, VQL has proven itself to be a reliable and creative producer among the design community.

 

Starting as an engineering company specializing in theatrical lighting in 1996, VQL created unique lighting effects that are still used today all over the world.  In 2005 VQL expanded its services into architectural lighting and has since expanded from a small engineering office to a twenty thousand square foot manufacturing facility on Long Island in New York.
