O’Blaney Rinker Announces New Partnership with Satco and Axolight

New York, NY, January 5, 2022 – O’Blaney Rinker Associates, a Manhattan-based representative of premium lighting products to the design and construction communities, is adding two new manufacturer-partners to its line card. The additions are Satco|Nuvo, a leading manufacturer of replacement bulbs, decorative lighting, functional and task lighting, as well as lighting components; and Axolight, an Italy- and US-based company specializing in high-end light fixtures with made-in-Italy design. O’Blaney Rinker will represent Satco in the Long Island and NYC territory and beginning February 1, 2022, they will represent Axolight throughout the Metropolitan New York and Northern New Jersey markets.

Satco is a highly reputable, national supplier of lighting products, with solutions for nearly every market sector. Products range from light bulbs and LED technologies to decorative fixtures, smart lighting, and even lighting components. Regularly debuting the latest innovations in multiple product categories, Satco is often a single source for complete projects. Their commitment to education includes online webinars on several different product categories and custom, in-person training for distributor-partners at the Brentwood, NY, headquarters.

“O’Blaney Rinker is focused on customer service as a top priority. Satco’s commitment to our demanding client base means that we can provide an expansive catalog of highly functional and decorative lighting solutions, components, and controls. And count on quality, service, delivery, and transparent pricing,” said Caroline Rinker, Co-Founder and Principal of O’Blaney Rinker Associates. “Satco also brings with them multiple, close connections with their local sales and product development personnel.”

Founded 25 years ago near Venice, Axolight combines cutting-edge lighting techniques with design and artisanal manufacturing typical of the best made in Italy. Axolight’s modern light fixtures and contemporary decorative luminaires are multi-functional and multi-dimensional. These qualities are evident in Hoop designed by Giovanno Barbato, a pendant that practically dances and twirls, and a line of acoustic solutions designed by Timo Ripatti and Manuel e Vanessa Vivian, among others. All Axolight products are designed, developed, tested, and manually assembled in the company workshop in Venice, with the US headquarters based in Danbury, CT.

“Over its long history, Axolight has incorporated the best of European design. We are delighted to bring their top sellers to our local specification community and can’t wait to see the stunning, high-design solutions forthcoming,” said Co-Founder and Principal James O’Blaney.
