About LiteSync ™
We are one of the few companies in southern Arizona that maintains both the state contractor licenses and lighting design credentials to fully meet the project requirements. We do not use subcontractors or “industry partners” to execute your projects. In effect, when there are no communication gaps between designers and contractors, there are no mistakes.
From the moment you walk in our door...you will experience LiteSync ™’s team of professionals dedicated to you and your investment. Under our roof we can take your project from a concept to CAD blueprint, then right on through to all aspects of installation.
It is easy to see how lighting, power, automation, sound and security can streamline your living environment to be filled with simplicity and comfort.
We are a firm dedicated to meeting your needs with excellence. We have recognized the complexities of the current industry related to design and installation of lighting, power, automation, audio/video, communications, security and have brought them all together under one roof to offer a more seamless, intelligent masterpiece. Our company name "LiteSync ™" derived from the orchestration and synchronization of all of these elements.
LiteSync ™ was a concept that began in the early 1990's.
David Rishor now President of the firm, was a foreman for a large commercial and residential electrical contractor when he realized that there was a hole in the industry related to the design and installation of lighting, high and low voltage systems.
Based primarily on lighting design and installation LiteSync ™ opened in 2001. Ultimately, with the demand for David’s electrical credentials and state licenses the company evolved. In 2004 when Kelly Rishor joined the company it became incorporated.
LiteSync ™ is now a full service design/build firm offering lighting, power, automation, home theater and security. This is the ideal and logical approach to structural systems and now our customer base stretches from local to international clientele.
Knowing how involved some systems can get, we have added a select group of consultants to the LiteSyncâ„¢ team who support our Pro Audio design services. With their help LiteSync is able to offer a complete package of acoustical design, measurement, simulation, audio, lighting, and rigging services from initial concept to complete drawing sets. Acoustical and architectural design are integrated to give better performing solutions while reducing construction costs. We are committed to finding innovative, thorough, efficient, cost effective and practical solutions to the acoustical challenges faced by our clients.
