Founded in 1936, Thorlux Lighting is the largest company within the F W Thorpe Plc group, operating from a modern 16,882 square metre self-contained factory in Redditch, Worcestershire. The company designs and manufactures industrial and commercial lighting equipment, with a particular focus on energy saving and through life costs.
Thorlux is able to exploit recent advances in LED technology to help meet customer demand for energy-efficient solutions. The company’s considerable technical expertise and its ability to invest position it to maximise the opportunities offered by LED technology.
The company has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation for its wireless lighting management system, SmartScan, which combines energy efficient lighting control and self-test emergency lighting. The system allows users to monitor their lighting energy data and emergency lighting status from a PC, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Thorlux is committed to minimising the environmental impact of both its manufacturing processes and products and the company’s innovative carbon offsetting scheme has been accredited to the Woodland Carbon Code in Wales, an independent standard to certify woodland creation projects that are designed to measure and account for the capture and storage of carbon.
