About Us

Why people enjoy doing business with us.
Of foremost importance to our customers, whether they are designers, engineers, architects or city planners, is our commitment to the overall success of their projects. The company has earned the tagline "From Specs to Spectacular" through a history of diligent work on landscaping projects of all scales. We commonly hear "you stick with it", "throughout the project, my rep overcame every obstacle, whether it was within his domain or not", "your knowledge and support materials were invaluable to me", "thank you for your copyright protection for our new design" and "the president picked up the phone to help me".

This level of commitment to quality permeates every aspect of our business. Although modern in our business practices and use of technology, we firmly believe that people want the level of personal service and value first established by Marvin Wittlin in the original New York City location, fifty years ago. We are loyal to longstanding employees, for whom this company has become an extended family.

Our network of representatives across the U.S. has been carefully selected for each person’s strong knowledge base as well as for a "Sentry attitude". We all appreciate the imagination of the talented clients who trust us to collaborate on their exciting and often creative projects. Finally, should problems arise, we feel that the expression "standing behind our product" and becoming your most reliable design, production and installation team are not just expressions; they are expressive of our belief system.

"Our knowledgeable service team is ready to work with you at the planning stage to create a unique lighting design. Call me directly at 516.379.4660 x101 to find out how Sentry can enhance your next high profile project, too" – Shepard Kay, President SENTRY ELECTRIC
