About Us

Our Mission, Our Culture, Our Values


Founded in 1973, award winning Franklite is one of the leading innovators in high-quality decorative lighting. Working with clients, architects, lighting consultants, interior designers, M & E consultants and distributors for the residential, hospitality and commercial markets throughout the UK, Europe, Middle and Far East.

Franklite has a story to tell. We are far more than just a lighting manufacturer; we are creators, visionaries and craftspeople who continue to pride ourselves on our manufacturing methods and excellent service. This includes offering products that balance optimal performance with beautiful aesthetics and have successfully supplied our exceptional luminaires to palaces, embassies, hotels, private residences and multi-residential projects.

Franklite remains at the forefront of the lighting industry with incredible in-house technology which includes the Rigo Near-Field Goniophotometer and highly-skilled design and technic­al teams who continue to develop signature products. Our LED plates and most recently award winning tuneable light engines are manufactured in-house and compatible with many of our luminaires. 

We have an outlet shop on our premises selling samples, slight seconds, and discontinued items at reduced prices. See our 'Contact' page for full details.

Our Culture and Values

Trust / Pride / Care / Innovation
Our culture is based on a set of four value pillars - Trust, Pride, Care, and innovation - that shape our individual behaviour and the way Franklite behaves. They ensure we are all working from a commonly understood base that can be consistently applied across Franklite.

Our values help us work through challenges we may face and help us recognise and celebrate our achievements, and learn from our experiences. They guide us in our dealings with colleagues, clients, suppliers, partners and the communities we serve.

We work hard to earn trust and respect. We deliver on our promises; are open, straightforward and honest; do the right thing; and take personal responsibility for getting things done.

We want to be proud of what we do. We know that the work we do is important, and we take pride in doing it well. We value energy and enthusiasm, skill and experience, and an ability to make challenging work fun. We contribute both as individuals and as part of a team.

We care deeply about the services we provide, and those we serve, and we look after each other. We work together to deliver high-quality service, to those we serve. We take care of each other, and those we serve, and we aim to make a positive difference.

We aspire to be better than anyone else at what we do. We continuously improve our ways of working, and try new ideas, big and small. We share our knowledge and experience and embrace change, knowing that if we don’t provide innovation and value for money to our audience, our competitors will.
