Acuity Brands provides lighting and building management solutions for commercial, institutional, industrial, infrastructure, and residential applications, employing over 13,000 associates across North America, Europe, and Asia. They’re the largest manufacturer of lighting and lighting control systems in North America. With 5,000+ product offerings across 8 different categories, 32 brands, and 14 independent brand websites, it’s safe to say that their catalog is complex.

“Our site is set up like a B2C site although we’re B2B. Our customers are consumers. They’re on the internet all day long, so we want to make sure that we give that same experience, even though they’re searching our site for their jobs.”
