Nordland Lighting continues to be a leader in hazardous, mining and industrial lighting solutions. The company was founded in 1967 and, after being ISO 9000:2008 certified for many years, it achieved ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 18 000 certification early in 2017.
Nordland lighting provides project specific engineering design services to all its customers and its extensive luminaire range are robust enough to meet the requirements of the mining and other industries in Africa and internationally.
Nordland Lighting was originally established as an importer of luminaires from Europe. From the early days, it became apparent that the future lay in local manufacture and the company embarked on a process of import substitution. This ultimately resulted in a large range of explosion proof luminaires for Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 locations; stainless steel and aluminium luminaire ranges, as well as luminaires in glass fibre-reinforced polyester with polycarbonate diffusers.
The company manufactures in line with the South African National Standards to ensure that all luminaires comply with the relevant specifications. Nordland Lighting has been a permit mark holder for its entire range of lighting for use in potentially explosive areas continuously since 1977. Its non-hazardous product types comply with SANS/IEC 60598 and carry the safety mark.
Nordland Lighting provides customers with a free application engineering design service aimed at reducing the risk of implementing inappropriate lighting designs. Its IESSA accredited professional lighting team combines decades of expertise across all lighting disciplines with the latest lighting software.
Years of experience in engineering allows Nordland Lighting to design, manufacture and supply the best possible solution for each specific application through HID or LED technology.
The company has acquired a 49% share in Ramika Projects in 2016 as an enterprise development project. Ramika Projects is a black woman-owned company and a leading role player in infrastructure development for previously disadvantaged communities.
Masakane Close Corporation is a 100% black woman-owned company supported by Nordland Lighting as a supplier development project. Three female employees from Nordland Lighting were given the opportunity to start their own company under Nordland Lighting’s guidance, ten years ago. Masakana has a staff compliment of 17 employees and specialises in the assembly of electrical and electronic panels.
Based in Muldersdrift, Gauteng, Nordland Lighting has as regional agents Matelec in Cape Town, Afrilite in Durban, Farad Agencies in East London and Lighting 2000 in the Free State.
