A larger more focused lighting company is envisaged by Bidvest Electrical with the merging of its professional lighting businesses under the control of Eagle Lighting Pty Ltd.

Bidvest Electrical merges its professional lighting businesses

As such, the company is pleased to announce the consolidation of Eagle Lighting Pty Ltd, Bellco Lighting, LASCON Project Lighting, and Technilamp. The merger took place on July 1, 2022. The combination of these companies and their lighting knowledge, heritage, strong brands, and application expertise is formidable. In addition, with an enhanced distribution footprint to serve customer needs, strong product pipelines and shared technological expertise, the company will be able to provide even higher level of service than it was able to achieve in the past.

Initially, all of the aforementioned companies will continue to operate as before, but will coordinate their interactions with market customers. The companies will gradually combine their operations and the sales team to be able to operate as one unit by the end of the year. Customers are asked to continue to contact the same personnel in the divisions with whom they currently work with. Their  goal is to minimise service interruptions, and believe that by consolidating slowly and thoughtfully, they will be able to provide a high level of service throughout the transition.

The staff are appreciative for the years of support that Eagle Lighting, Bellco Lighting, LASCON Project Lighting, and Technilamp have received, and will continue to work hard to win your business in the future.
