NORBURN LIGHTING AND BATH
Norburn Lighting and Bath Centre was once known as Norburn Electric, established in late 1948 in the 4500 block of East Hastings Street in Burnaby. Norburn Electric was originally an electrical shop offering parts, repairs, wiring and maintenance. Norburn Electric also had a few street lighting contracts in Burnaby, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, and other nearby municipalities.
As the company began to grow, Norburn Electric ventured into different subsidiaries such as repairing motors and appliances, electrically thawing frozen pipes, underwater electrical and communications work, and later on began showcasing lighting.
By 1991, Bruce and Ross Robinson acquired Norburn Electric, integrating new technologies, updating the look of the showroom, and diversifying the company by adding bath and plumbing accessories. Bruce and Ross Robinson are among the fourth generation Robinson’s to venture into lighting. The family had a well established showroom in Winnipeg that was founded in 1936.
Today, Norburn Electric is now known as Norburn Lighting and Bath Centre, and is owned by Brett and Leigh Robinson, who are the successors of the late Bruce Robinson. The Robinson family acquired a Kelowna showroom in 1997, and later expanded to the US Market after acquiring a Plymouth, Minnesota showroom in 2015.
In 2010, Norburn Lighting and Bath Centre was named Small Business of the Year from the Board of Trade.
The Showroom was also an ARTs Award Finalist for International Retailer in 2013, and won in 2014.
Norburn Lighting and Bath Centre was also announced as the winner of the Lighting Showroom of the Year in 2012 and 2013.
In 2018, Norburn Lighting and Bath Centre received the Consumer Choice Award in Vancouver.
