Focal Point Introduces 2-Day Lead Time Option with New Quickship Red Program

Feb. 15, 2021
Quickship program expansion gives customers access to the most popular options for ID+ 3.5" and 4.5" Downlights and Wall Washers in just two business days.

Chicago, IL – February 11, 2020 With the introduction of Quickship Red, Focal Point is expanding its current Quickship program by offering a short, two-day lead time on up to 200 pieces for downlights and 100 pieces for wall washers. Unlike a stock program, Quickship Red answers the customers’ needs for speed and selection by offering a range of options to configure luminaires that ship in two business days. This new capability establishes Focal Point as the fastest manufacturer of commercial architectural grade, made-to-order downlights in today’s market.  

Quickship is a broad, made–to–order offering of architectural luminaires that support all main areas of a project. Recognizing the need to satisfy tight project schedules without sacrificing quality or selection, Quickship and Quickship Red leverage Focal Point’s vertical integration and on-site manufacturing capabilities to ship a wide variety of made-to-order luminaires in 2, 5 and 10 days. 

“At Focal Point, we’ve always prided ourselves on providing our customers with the innovative, high-quality lighting solutions they need when they need them. But today’s fast-paced and cost-conscious market has created a demand for even shorter lead times on many orders. That’s why we challenged ourselves to significantly reduce our current turnaround for our most popular products – but without impacting the world-class quality and service our customers expect,” states John Dellorto, Vice President of Sales. “Quickship Red exemplifies our commitment to bringing it all to light for our customers - seamlessly combining quality, service and speed to meet the evolving needs of today’s market.”  

The new Quickship Red program includes the most popular options of the company’s ID+ 3.5” and 4.5” Downlights and Wall Washers. 

As part of its Quickship program, Focal Point offers 5-day lead times for all other ID+ 3.5" and 4.5" Downlights and Wall Washers configurations, as well as a selection of architectural troffers. It also offers 10-day lead times for linear, perimeter and cove luminaires – individual units, runs, patterns; ID+ 3.5" Adjustable Downlights; ID+ 3.5" and 4.5" Cylinders; and other architectural troffers.

Concurrent with the Quickship Red launch, Focal Point published new Quickship and Quickship Red guides on its website. These resources provide a comprehensive list of all product options that qualify for the Quickship and Quickship Red programs. Customers can simply complete a catalog number by selecting the options they require and marking the order as Quickship or Quickship Red for fast processing. And, when the job calls for unique designs, Focal Point’s engineering team and US-based manufacturing facility are also available to support with custom luminaires.
