Bidvest Electrical merges its professional lighting businesses.

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.
The new Eagle Lighting (Pty) Ltd Retail and Professional Lighting consolidated company will be formed from the merger of Eagle Lighting Pty Ltd, Bellco Lighting, LASCON Project Lighting and Technilamp.

Eagle Lighting Pty Ltd, Bellco Lighting, LASCON Project Lighting and Technilamp have announced that they will enter into a merger 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, they believe they will be able to provide even higher level of service than they were 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. They 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 encouraged to continue to contact the same personnel in the divisions with whom they currently work. Their goal is to minimize service interruptions. The companies believe that by consolidating slowly and thoughtfully, they will be able to provide a high level of service throughout the transition.

They are all 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 their customers’ business in the future. They thank their clients and customers for their previous support, and look forward to an even better future!
