Contrac Lighting and High Technology Lighting, have announced their plans to merge businesses; creating one larger, more secure, lighting manufacturer, with over 100 years’ experience collectively, providing lighting solutions across almost every sector.
Both businesses have always believed firmly in the importance of UK manufacturing; therefore, both will now operate out of Contrac’s recently-improved facility in Goole, East Yorkshire. This will allow High Technology to benefit from a dedicated in-house manufacturing process, meaning not only a more efficiently delivered and competitive range of standard luminaires, but also the capability to easily produce bespoke solutions.
Contrac Lighting’s Anne Shone will continue in her role as managing director, working closely with High Technology Lighting directors, Graham Kemp and Thomas Holgeth. All three have been involved in the lighting industry for over 30 years and, in that time, have built solid reputations for themselves; individually, and for their respective companies.
While the two companies have operated in different sectors, and aimed to fill different needs within the industry, both have addressed the need for high-quality, sustainable solutions and, in recent years, have placed a particular focus on developing highly-efficient luminaires.
