We've summarized 4 decades of our accomplishments
Established in 1983, by Terrance Kilbourne, Tec had a decade of growth joining forces with Anton Eichmuller and moving into our current headquarters in Eastlake, Ohio. We grew to a staff of 5 and completed significant commercial, education and library projects.
In the first decade of the new millennium, Tec added higher education clients and celebrated several award winning designs. The Cuyahoga County Courthouse Relighting was a particularly significant landmark project we completed.
As we entered into our fourth decade of business, we celebrate the bright future for Tec Inc. Our capabilities and leadership have grown and changed and we look forward to the next 40 years.
The firm continued our trend of rapid growth with significant additions to our professional leadership, capabilities and added lighting design services. Milestones included adding several higher education clients, healthcare systems and library systems to our resume.
An exciting decade of growth for our firm, our team grew with the addition of 10 staff in Columbus through acquisition and the opening of an office in Pittsburgh.
