Maxim Lighting is multi-generational brand built on ingenuity, passion, and dedication. After immigrating to the United States in 1965, Jacob Sperling used his student visa to bring his vision of superior lighting to life. Studying aeronautics by day, nights were spent in his makeshift garage factory. Here, he used skills and techniques learned from his day job with a lighting retailer to forge innovative new lighting products. Thus, Maxim Lighting was born. Today Maxim has been refining and redefining cutting-edge lighting trends for more than 45 years, with over 4,000 distinct and noteworthy designs in their collection, from traditional to contemporary.
