Merger for Contrac Lighting and High Technology Lighting

Lighting providers, Contrac Lighting and High Technology Lighting, are to merge, creating a larger lighting manufacturer, offering lighting solutions across almost every sector.

Both businesses believe in the importance of UK manufacturing and will now operate from Contrac’s recently-improved facility in Goole, East Yorkshire. This will allow High Technology to benefit from in-house manufacturing, meaning not only a more efficiently delivered and competitive range of standard luminaires, but also a bespoke solutions capability.

“Contrac Lighting has always had a close working relationship with High Technology Lighting so bringing the two companies together under one banner was always an aspiration we held,” said Anne Shone, Managing Director of Contrac Lighting.

Shone will continue in her role as MD, working closely with High Technology Lighting Directors, Graham Kemp and Thomas Holgeth.

While the two companies have operated in different sectors, and aimed to fill different needs within the industry, both have addressed the need for high-quality, sustainable solutions.

“The synergy offered by our two companies coming together is truly exciting and stands us in an excellent position to continue to deliver to our wide customer base, not only an expanded product and service, but also the usual eye on innovation and design, in response to client needs, trends and new technology,” said Thomas Holgeth, Director of High Technology Lighting.
