FSG is a privately held company and was founded as American Light in 1982 by CEO Bill Graham and COO Steve Byrne. Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Bob Graham joined American Light in 1985. An electrical services company, Design Electric, was established in 1986; a national accounts division in 1995; and a smart building division in 1998. Graham was quoted in the June 2006 issue of American Executive magazine, saying that his goal was to “offer not only products, but also services—to build a structure that would enable us to offer a total solution to the end users of our products.”
In 2000, American Light and Design Electric combined to form Facility Solutions Group. As of August 2018, FSG has six divisions, 42 branches, four regional distribution centers and 2,300 employees serving customers in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. The six FSG divisions are Construction, Lighting, Electrical, Smart Buildings, Technology and Signs.
