Progressive Turnkey Solutions seeks nat'l distributor for sustainable lighting systems

Nick Tuza did a lot of work in the auto industry, then the industry took a big hit a few years ago. That downturn created an opportunity for Tuza to go another route, creating Progressive Turnkey Solutions.

The Wixom-based company sells energy-efficient lighting systems and the software to control them. Since starting with two employees, it has grown to 10 employees and five independent contractors.

The 2-year-old company offers a number of energy-efficient products, such as LED lights, the poster child of sustainability. It also offers software systems that can dim parking lot lights when no one is around or utilize motion detectors. "It's a way of mixing products and solutions together," Tuza says.

A number of Tuza's customers have come around to the idea of energy efficient products in the last 3-6 months as energy prices have climbed. He expects that increased perception of financial viability for sustainable products, along with plans to begin utilizing national distributors, should allow his company to keep expanding and hiring.

"We can get a return on investment within 12 months," Tuza says.
