KLI is known as the premiere lighting manufacturer’s representative in Hawaii since 1976.  In general, we promote our lighting manufacturers through Architects, Engineers and Designers and distribute through wholesale electrical houses.

KLI was originally incorporated in 1976 under the name KLOPFENSTEIN’S and operated out of a house in Hawaii Kai.  In December of 1987 we moved our operations into our present location on Nuuanu Ave in Downtown Honolulu.  In 1997 we reincorporated as KLOPFENSTEIN’S LIGHTING INC  (KLI). 

Our primary purpose is to provide the best product for your application with efficient service for all your needs.

· STERNBERG LIGHTING’s most recent Installation of the Month for the month of July.  Click here to read the study.

Belk, the nation’s largest privately owned department store company, recently opened a new store in Colonial Pinnacle at Turkey Creek, located in Knoxville, Tenn. The $7.6 million, 74,000 sq. ft store was designed to feature the latest retail designs and showcase name-brand apparel, shoes and accessories, as well as jewelry, cosmetics and home furnishings.

Research has shown that lighting installations that are carefully designed to attract customers and help them assess the merchandise will actually increase retail sales. Through the use of RT5 lighting, Belk was able to create a brighter, more natural lighting environment while reducing energy use compared to other lighting systems.



We were amazed at how well RT5 lit up each of the different merchandising areas and created an overall unique and welcoming environment for our customers. The lighting produces a very natural feel that shows colors and textures extremely well without glare or shadows. This contributes to an extraordinary experience for our customers and enables our employees to complete each transaction in a time-efficient and accurate manner.”
