A brief history

Caragh BarryNews UK



It all started in 1963 with an idea for a great product. An extra strong light fitting engineered to withstand the most severe environmental conditions, perfect for transport, social housing and custodial settings.

Over fifty years late, Designplan Lighting currently has more than 140 employees, and sales in more than twenty countries worldwide. Designplan products are consistently recommended by our loyal customer base of consultants and architects on large infrastructure projects around the world.

Since 2011 we’re proud to be part of the Fagerhult group, one of the fastest growing lighting groups in Europe. Our robust fittings complement their existing ranges, providing world class products for the toughest environments.

In August 2014 we moved to a new purpose-built BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accredited factory, allowing us to leverage further investment and position us for continued future growth.

Designplan Lighting’s vision is to be our customer’s first choice supplier of robust, highly efficient luminaires, specifically designed for applications in transport, social housing, custodial, secure healthcare and urban environments.
