Unlimited Lighting

Northern Lights has been creating inspiring lighting solutions for the hospitality and retail sectors since 1987. Always prepared to push the limits of lighting design, our role is to listen to your ideas and then do our utmost to turn your vision into reality. Not only do we have a wide range of standard products, we are also happy to take on bespoke challenges - any size, shape, colour or finish - the choice is yours.

"My vision of Northern Lights is based on this: a place filled with creativity and passion, a place where everyone says 'I can do that' and goes the extra mile to achieve it."

- John Fleming, Director

Starting as a stained glass manufacturer in 1987, Northern Lights has grown into one of the UK's leading decorative lighting manufacturers. From six metre chandeliers to bedside lamps, every day we despatch hundreds of fittings to restaurants, hotels, pubs, cafés and retail spaces all over the country and abroad. Companies such as Premier Inn, Holiday Inn, Hilton, Costa Coffee, Jamie’s Italian and PizzaExpress all work with Northern Lights to develop inspiring and practical lighting solutions to reinforce their brands. They trust Northern Lights to manage roll-out schemes at regional, national and international levels.

We continue to invest in our design and manufacturing facilities ensuring that we not only meet the demands of today's market but also set the trends for the future.

Our design team is tuned into the latest trends. They experiment with new technology and innovative materials to produce collections which resonate with our customers. These collections are popular, well priced and can be produced quickly. When it comes to bespoke projects, their input can be as straightforward as running an eye over fully formulated designs in order to provide simple implementation advice. Equally even the broadest brief can be turned into something special, appropriate and beautiful. The proof is in the projects.

Most of our fittings are manufactured in our 38,000sq ft factory in Chesterfield. In-house manufacturing means a flawless transition from design to production. You will be assured of quality products made from quality materials, on-time deliveries and an immediate response to any changes that are required. 

We care

Customers are always at the very heart of Northern Lights. We operate strict project control to ensure every project is delivered on time and is of the highest quality. Our key stage assessments with clients during the project ensure an accurate interpretation of what the customer is trying to achieve. 

We recommend

The choice of lamps is crucial to any design decision. Our design team can assist in proposing appropriate lamps taking into consideration all aspects of a project - ambience, special effects, the right level of light and energy costs.

Given our close relationship with LED manufacturers - we are Philips' largest European OEM - you will also be able to take advantage of the latest LED technology to achieve stunning lighting effects as well as minimising energy and maintenance costs.

We export

We have exported to more than 30 countries across five continents. Our design team has a clear understanding of the different aesthetics, standards and regulations demanded for lighting in different countries. Most of the production is based in our UK factory but large volumes come from our Chinese suppliers - providing our customers with best value is our goal. Our project team co-ordinates production and delivery ensuring the most efficient and cost-effective service. Whatever your location, with the dedication and experience of the award winning Northern Lights export team, you will be assured of high quality products and on-time deliveries.
