Lighting designer and manufacturer Ansell Lighting celebrates its 30th birthday in 2022 and has a year of events, launches and fundraising planned to mark the occasion.
Established in Belfast in 1992 before expanding into mainland UK in 2001, Ansell Lighting is a recognised market leader in the design and manufacture of high quality luminaires for the commercial, domestic, industrial and architectural markets. Headquartered in Warrington, where it has a state-of-the-art showroom, Ansell operates across Europe, with showrooms in Belfast, Dublin and the recently-opened Madrid.
As part of the 30th birthday celebrations Ansell will be launching 30 innovative new products across 2022 to underline its commitment to developing and producing high quality products. The first of these products, an addition to the popular Z LED high bay collection, will be launched this month.
Throughout 2022 Ansell will be supporting Our Blue Light – a charity that provides mental health and wellbeing support to emergency services and essential services workers. Ansell staff will be supporting some of Our Blue Light’s own fundraising events, as well as creating and holding their own activities with a view to helping the charity reach its fundraising target of £30k for the year.
In addition Ansell will be sponsoring a number of high profile music events – providing the lighting at six Classic Ibiza concerts at stately homes across the country in July and August to showcase its product range.
There will be a community campaign launching in April which will enable wholesalers and installers to nominate deserving causes to win a lighting support package so they can enhance and continue their community work. And, in order to recognise the great work done by its partners, the #AwesomeAnsell campaign, which celebrates great projects completed by installers using Ansell products, will be extended.
Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Ansell Lighting, said: “Like all new businesses, Ansell Lighting began modestly with a first trading month of just £70 in August 1992. Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength, enjoying huge growth to become the multi-million pound business it is today.
“It is a real achievement to reach our 30th birthday and a great opportunity for us to reinforce our strong growth ambitions for the coming years. We are looking forward to sharing the celebrations – and the new products – with our wholesale customers, installers, colleagues and friends throughout the year.”
