After Mel retired in 1980, Don McLellan continued to run the company with three of his sons, Dave, Tom, and Steve. He changed the name to Van O Lite and the company continued steady, healthy growth. They maintained a reputation with the public of being a great place with friendly people that would help find any lighting product that was needed.
In the 2000s, the company grew so much that it moved from Fridley, MN to a new, larger headquarters in Maple Grove, MN and changed the name to a more modern moniker: Service Lighting. In 2016, Dave retired and his son Paul (who had been working there since 1995) purchased the business.
Service Lighting has always been a service centered company. Customer service was, is, and will forever be #1.
