Holophane Europe celebrated 125 years of trading recently; an amazing achievement and a testament to the Holophane brand, and all the dedicated employees over the decades.

Holophane’s original factory in Elverton Street, Westminster, London

Founded in 1896 in London, headed by Alexander Pelham Trotter, it marked the start of an incredible history that has now seen Holophane become a global business revered throughout the world for its expertise, quality, innovation and excellence in lighting.

Holophane’s first product was the famous patented globe in ‘white’ or ‘rose crystal’ that sold for around 2 shilling (10p). Today, Holophane continues this proud tradition with our values deeply rooted in the dedication to creating luminaires, with exceptional lighting performance, innovative patented technologies, and delivering added customer value beyond illumination.

Holophane is believed to be one of the oldest lighting companies still trading today with the same name.

For more on Holophane’s 125-year history be sure to check on Holophane’s social media channels where Holophane will be releasing month-by-month a comprehensive timeline of their history.

Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic has required Holophane to adapt original celebration plans this year. Instead, Holophane are celebrating virtually with a charity event, raising money for the British Heart Foundation in memory of Mark Field, a valued member of staff who sadly recently passed away from a heart attack.

To raise money, Holophane staff and family members are individually aiming to run, cycle, walk or swim our way to 125 miles of Covid-friendly exercise during lockdown. Holophane have started a Just Giving page to allow anyone of their friends, staff, and businesses partners or customers to kindly donate.
