MEET THE TEAM
“It all began in 1989 when Chuck Link (Founder/Owner) started a Christmas lighting installation business. Realizing there was a greater need for a
source of quality, commercial grade lighting products, he took every opportunity to train and work with the founders of landscape lighting as well as
the top designers and installers in the country. This brought about Chuck’s new start-up company called Florida Outdoor Lighting Distributors.
Originally working out of a 20 x 20 mini storage unit, Chuck grew Florida Outdoor Lighting Distributors into a multi million dollar business within
several years. After the sale of the lighting distribution business, he continued to provide installation and sales support.” He started Link Outdoor
lighting in 2015 and never looked back!”

customers with affordable prices and reliable products, but to also educate our customers with product knowledge. I am excited to team up with
