Gordon J. Bullard

Founder and Director of the company

If there’s someone who can explain anything, Gordon is the one. His fancy fantasy matches perfectly with his business and communicative skills.

Gordon began his career as a five year old child, shovelling snow for neighbours and soon realised he could hire other kids to assist him and built a lawn and house care business that he sold at 15 for a profit. The Bullard family operated KSM Corporation for close to 100 years, a custom metal fabrication and industrial contracting company with over 100 employees. Upon the death of his father Gordon ran the company and successfully invented, designed and manufactured numerous metal products. As a result, passion for building and selling quality products came alive within him. During a vacation in Italy many years ago he met a couple at a wedding who invited him to tour their murano glass factory and love for lighting began. Gordon sold all of his companies in 2004 and became a full time father, then one day his daughter went to the first grade and he found himself with a lot of free time. Debating the next chapter of life and trying to decide on what would be next, Gordon randomly read an article on the LED and the reinvention of the light bulb, and the rest is history.
