2007 - A New Year Begins

And it promises to be a big year for us here at Barbizon. 2007 marks our 60th year in the entertainment lighting business, and boy have we seen a lot of changes in those six decades! We've grown from a small hardware store in New York City to an international company with over 150 employees worldwide. We'd just like to take a moment to thank you for coming on this journey with us, and to promise that we'll work very hard to make the next sixty years as brilliant as these past ones have been!

For the record, I'm speaking in the "corporate we" sense. Neither I nor anyone I know has been around Barbizon for the entire 60 years, although Victor's pretty old. Anyway, it's a landmark year for us and I'll be spending some time each month on this little lighting blog introducing you to some of the people that have made Barbizon great over the decades - our employees, management, customers and vendors that we've had long relationships with. So keep up with us, we're not just going to use this corner of the web for trade show reports anymore.

Oh, and one more thing - we're hiring. Check out our website for more info, but we're always looking for people who want to "stand behind the people that stand behind the lights." Remember that one?
