Cerno is a business based in Irvine, California, specializing in modern LED lighting fixtures that are designed and manufactured in the United States. The company was founded in Laguna Beach, CA in March 2009 by childhood friends Bret Englander, Nick Sheridan and Daniel Wacholder.
One of their first projects which led to the founding of the company was a proposal for a large-scale LED light installation for the 2010 Winter Olympics. The project did not come to fruition due to Olympic budget issues, but the founders decided to continue growing their start-up business.
Since Cerno first emerged in 2009 the company has grown from the 3 founders to a team of over 50 employees. Cerno has worked with many of the leading design and architecture firms in the United States and abroad. In 2011 Cerno's founders launched REVELITE.
The Revelite arm of Cerno specializes in making extremely high-quality art lighting. Cerno is a vertically integrated manufacturer, which means their entire process happens under one roof at their Southern California headquarters.
Cerno's founders attribute their success to their cohesive process of designing, engineering, and manufacturing at one location. Their vertical integration allows for their products to be more fully resolved.
