The Will Group Story. 


 

Thirty-three years after our establishment, The Will Group (TWG) is the pioneer company of several different companies that are prominent within the lighting and electrical industry – Electrical Resource Management (ERM), Lyons View Manufacturing and Supply (LV), Lighting Solutions of Illinois (LSI), TWiG Technologies (TWiG) and Industrial Electric Supply (IES).

Our companies have superseded their respective roles to go beyond the traditional boundaries of lighting businesses – branding itself as a provider of complete industry solutions that make positive contributions to its clients’ bottom line. Operating under the philosophy and mission “Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way”, the corporate culture of The Will Group fosters ingenuity and creativity with every endeavor. Our competitive distinction is our ability to be an encompassing single source provider for our clients’ lighting, manufacturing, and sourcing needs. We represent some of the industry’s most prominent lighting fixture and pole manufacturers. Our in-house team is fully trained on our infrastructure assessment software and are experts in assembly.

William ‘Papa Will’ Edward Davis

"My father’s name was William Edward Davis. Friends and family called him “Will.” He lived to the age of 80 and at the time of his death he had worked for the same family in Knoxville, Tennessee, for nearly 65 years. William “Will” Davis was a hero to my six siblings and me. When I started The Will Group, I had a vision of a business that would honor my father and would promote the core values of integrity, pride and hard work he was well known for. This dynamic business environment could then inspire the development of additional businesses that could be managed by one or more family members, and or key stakeholders who aspire to the same values. Today, my vision has become reality as several companies are now owned and operated by descendants of Will Davis. Although each Will Group company is a separate, distinct and independent entity, all operate with the common philosophy “Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way.” I believe my father would be proud. My family and I thank you for your support."
