In 1993 Georgiy Boos became focused on his own business activities. A youth production team he had created before began implementing all kinds of innovative lighting projects. Thus Research and Manufacturing Lighting Enterprise Svetoserviсe Joint Stock Company was set up.
At first the company performed its activities within the North-East Administrative District of Moscow, taking up any functional lighting related tasks. And in their spare time the members of the Boos young team were blowing out the ideas, developing ingenious innovative projects, still only on paper. Few believed in their success, and Georgiy Boos was seen as a romantic, an utopist, a dreamer. In 1994 the architectural illumination of a high-rise building of the Ukraine hotel and the Kazan Cathedral on Red Square was implemented in the shortest term, and the mayor of the capital mentioned the highest quality of works performed and responsibility of Georgiy Boos for his “words and deeds” in public. The Svetoservice Company became one of the leading contractors for the lighting of Moscow municipal facilities.

The Company was also entrusted to perform more delicate tasks, such as illumination of museum halls and exhibits, with the Moscow Kremlin Armory being the first project.
In 1995 Georgiy Valentinovich defended his candidate’s thesis on “Improving the efficiency of outdoor lighting installations in city streets and squares” in the Research Institute for Building Physics of the Russian Academy of Architecture and Construction Sciences.
