Paramont EO and Crest Lighting have grown significantly in scope and in reach, but our corporate mission remains unchanged since 1964.

We are committed to continuous improvement, guided by the fundamental values of teamwork and mutual respect for the employee, customer, and vendor.

With over 50 years of experience as a full line electrical distributor, the team at Paramont EO knows how to deliver solutions, not just material.

Our success in the industry is due to our extremely knowledgeable and dedicated staff, our company philosophy based on TRUST, and the relationships we have nurtured with customers and vendors.

We proactively implement value added services and custom solutions to support our clients’ changing needs and enable them to economically and efficiently complete their jobs on schedule.

We believe that communication is a key component of every order we process so we encourage ongoing engagement from start to finish.

We pride ourselves on our ability to anticipate potential issues and mitigate risk factors before they become problems. In the event a problem does arise, we leverage our strategic vendor partnerships to reduce the impact and secure a remedy.

At Paramont EO we think of ourselves as much more than just a supplier—we are solution providers, problem solvers…a true partner.
