Thomas Robinson started the family venture into the lighting industry as a chandler (candle maker) in Montreal around 1850. His son, William Wadby Robinson, moved to Winnipeg, and in 1919 established a successful lighting agency business which was recognized as the first to supply pre-wired lighting fixtures in Western Canada. B. A. Robinson Co. Ltd. was founded in 1936 by Burt A. Robinson, the third Robinson generation to supply lighting products to the residential and commercial construction market, and the company continued to grow through the late 30's and 40's. For 37 years, Burt continued to grow the business and its revenue. He would be joined by his two sons, the fourth generation of Robinsons, in the early 1970's.
