About Us

Established in 1987, Maring DeVries Associates formed with an idea that the lighting manufacturer’s rep in Chicago could be a trusted source of expertise, reliable service, and fresh ideas.

Diverse offering of residential and decorative lighting solutions

We believe that good light makes for a good life.

Our Story

From this idea grew a business that has been serving the retail lighting showrooms and electrical distributors of Northern Illinois with quality lighting brands for over 30 years.

As the lighting industry has changed over time, so too has the manufacturers rep’s business evolved. Re-branded as MDA Lites in 2016, we’ve grown to expand our partnerships, distribution channels, and geographic territories while honoring our core values of superior lighting knowledge, personalized service, and reliability. As the lighting industry continues to rapidly transition into a new age of smart controls, human-centric lighting, & technologies yet to be discovered, we are dedicated to serving the lighting needs of our partners and their clients.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple; to serve our partners, clients, and their designs to assure that they receive the best lighting solution for their space.
