Tabor Group Inc. has been heavily invested in researching the most cost effective lighting products and lighting systems for agriculture for over 25 years. Our philosopy has always been to align oursleves with unbiased university associates that assist in field testing products and evaluations with an unbiased viewpoint but always analysing cost, payback potential and product life. Tabor Group Inc. feels that ongoing field testing allows our products to remain the absolute best offered to the industry. The dimming issues are far more complex and costly. We are now heavily invested in researching LED technology and are involved with designing LED systems and individual retrofit products for both poultry and swine. TGI’s objective has always been to supply high quality, cost effective, lighting solutions to the agricultural distributor. Today, we sell around the world.
Tabor Group was established in 1984 in Roanoke, VA. Our Sales office is located at 3144 Brambleton Avenue, Roanoke, VA 24018. Tabor Group (TGI) markets strictly to equipment distributors. Forrest Tabor, TGI President, began marketing Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL’s) in the mid 1980’s to the poultry industry. In the early 1990’s TGI expanded lighting sales into Swine. TGI represents vertically
integrated manufacturers that have proven field performance, as lighting applications must function in very harsh environments, yet still offer long life.
We have many close affiliations with many agricultural colleges, extension agents and field research specialists. We work with many companies to maintain ongoing field testing to insure that the products we represent perform at the highest levels. TGI has also developed specialized software to help with accurate lighting layouts for retrofitting and new construction farms.
