Our Story



Mr. E. R. Grote, founder, established an incandescent lamp factory in Wimbledon, London. The factory specialised in manufacturing unique incandescent decorative light sources.


During World War 2, the lamp making machinery was converted to produce components for the military, to aid in the war effort. 
1960 1980


Due to increasing business, the manufacturing plant was expanded to increase the size and capacity,  achieving production of over 10 million units per annum.


A national distribution centre was established in West Yorkshire to facilitate national next day delivery across the UK and Southern Ireland.
“We will endeavour to do everything in our power to serve the customer to the best of our ability.”

BELL House

As a business, in spite of the issues faced as a result of COVID-19, we continued to enjoy rapid growth moving into 2023. This growth culminated in our move to a new National Distribution Centre. The move to BELL House provided us with a warehouse which can accommodate 6,588 pallet locations, with over 2,100 saleable product lines and the capability to achieve 300 despatched daily orders.

Circular Economy and Carbon Neutral Status

We achieved Carbon Neutral status in 2023! In addition to this accomplishment, we also released the circular economy focussed Firestay Geo® Sustainable Modular Downlight into our range. The product won a Build Back Better Green Award alongside the Lighting Product of the Year and the Smart Buildings/Sustainability Product of the Year at the Electrical Contracting News Awards.
