HEW Logo

H.E. Williams leads the way to better lighting. For over seventy years, the company has been making a visible difference by designing and manufacturing superior commercial lighting products.


Founded by inventor and entrepreneur Harold E. Williams in 1921, the company made gadgets and automotive accessories in the early years. Still family-owned and operated in Carthage, Missouri, Williams is proud to make its products in the U.S.A.


The company manufactures over 700 different fixture styles, with the ability to quickly meet industry demand by producing custom fixtures on request. This understanding of customers' needs sets Williams apart from the competition.

Do You Ski or Snowboard?
WIN Two Season Ski Passes from the MH Companies
and H.E. Williams!

 Ski Passes


The Colorado mountains are already getting snow, so that can only mean one thing. Ski season is just a few weeks away! The MH Companies and H.E. Williams want to make sure that you hit the slopes often this year, so we're giving away two season ski passes to Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. The Epic Pass gives you full access to both resorts with limited holiday restrictions. Maybe skiing isn't your thing? No problem! If you prefer, you can choose to receive a Visa gift card equal to the value of the ski passes. That's the possibility of almost $600 in your pocket just for watching a short product video and answering a few questions. What are you waiting for?

A: None. They are smart enough to use compact fluorescent bulbs that almost never need changing.
