Our History 

Starting just before World War II, AFX has become one of the country’s most prominent players in energy-efficient lighting. It was founded by William Rusnak, a banker and furniture retailer with an entrepreneurial spirit. Having encountered fluorescent lighting at the 1933-34 Century of Progress International Exposition in Chicago, he opened his shop in 1938. His son-in-law, Jerry Solomon, entered the business in 1940, and his son Bill Solomon became President in 1983. Being an industry leader, the company embraces the best new ideas in lighting design and manufacturing, ushering in the era of cabinet lighting.
