A collaborative effort.
Established in Chesterfield in 1987 as a small family business, Northern Lights has grown into the UK's leading manufacturer of bespoke decorative light fittings within the contract lighting industry. The business has been carefully developed from the craftsmanship of a small team of skilled artisans who started by designing and hand-making various products from stained glass. Within a few short years, the company transformed to become one of the key hospitality lighting manufacturers, creating bespoke lighting for luxury hotels, restaurants and retail.
Fast forward to the early 2000s, and as demand for bespoke hospitality lighting fixtures increased, new skills and crafts were added to the business. The decision was made to purchase larger premises and invest in new state-of-the-art machinery, specialist tooling and paint facilities. With this increased capacity and capability, Northern Lights developed into the the leading supplier of truly bespoke light fittings for many of the largest global hospitality brands and providers. In addition to hospitality lighting fixtures, we also develop bespoke lighting solutions across luxury residential properties, superyachts, commercial and transport sectors.
We continue to invest in our in-house manufacturing capabilities, and in the hands of our talented design team and master artisans we create exquisite bespoke lighting installations and truly unique collections. Northern Lights has particular expertise in glass techniques, metal fabrication and an extensive range of finishes, all produced in our own facilities. As a bespoke lighting supplier, we work in close collaboration with our clients and have an impressive portfolio of brands. Through decades of expertise in product design, engineering and manufacturing techniques, we are able to offer expert advice from conception to delivery, so you know you're in good hands.
As of 2020, Northern Lights became part of the NLC Group of Companies Ltd. As a long-term owner, they have a proven history in developing decorative lighting companies across the UK, Europe, Middle East and the Far East. The expert team at Northern Lights is led by Donna Bruce, who joined the business in the late 1990s. Together with Donna's intrinsic understanding of every aspect of the business and the support from The National Lighting Company Ltd, the vision for the future of Northern Lights is to utilise our creative capabilities further and to push the boundaries of manufacturing to create some of the most iconic luxury bespoke lighting on a global scale.
