Description of economic activities

Manufacture of electric lighting equipment (NACE2 2740)

The Norwegian company is engaged in developing, manufacturing and distributing professional, commercial and industrial lighting equipment worldwide. It was founded in 1947, when Birger Hatlebakk founded his first company L/L Maskin-EL in Trondheim. His first production was products for electrical installations. It is based in Molde, Norway.The company supplies lighting worldwide, to large office buildings, health institutions, educational and commercial areas, multinational industrial companies, offshore installations and to the world's most luxurious cruise liners. In 1948/49 Birger Hatlebakk developed a special surface treatment process for aluminum, which later was to be known as 'Glamoxised'. The first light luminaries were produced and the glamoxised process gave the aluminum reflectors the unique surface. The company then took the name Glamox in 1951 - as a result of the unique process - GLAtt - Matt - OXidised.The company is one of the ten biggest lighting manufacturers in Europe, consisting of a group of companies operating in most European countries, as well as Asia, the United States of America, and Canada. The group is divided in two: European Professional Lighting (EPL), which makes lighting solutions for professional purposes in Europe, and Global Marine Offshore (GMO), which is one of the world's leading suppliers of light fittings to the global marine and offshore market. Global Marine Offshore's sales units are situated in Norway, Germany, Canada, China, and the United Kingdom. GMO's production units are situated in Germany, Norway, Canada, and the United States. EPL, on the other hand, has sales companies in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, England, Ireland, and Germany. In other parts of Europe, EPL is represented through distributors.The company's renowned products are watertight and explosion proof luminaries for marine and offshore - which rapidly expanded in the North Sea. The C20-P2 luminar is the first product in the C20 family. It is exceptionally small for a lamp with top energy- and light-efficiency. It is designed for a wide mass-market and developed for efficient production with a design that can play a suitable role in contemporary architecture. The company's portfolio of brands include Glamox, Hoevikolys, Norselight, Aqua Signal.
