About Us

In 2006, no organisation could genuinely claim to offer an end-to-end lighting design, manufacture and installation service. That gap in the market was what 79 Lighting set out to fill.

In making the concept a reality, the 79 directors, Nick, Alex and Owen Claridge, drew on a wealth of collective experience in lighting design, manufacturing and construction going back over 40 years. Coming together with such depth of experience to form the 79 Group and take a holistic approach to serving the lighting industry was a logical step.

But the mission for those behind 79 has always been more than just to provide a one-stop solution based on outstanding service. As individuals with a passion for sports that bring them closer to nature, from surfing to mountain biking, putting environmental awareness at the heart of their business through the pursuit of green technologies and sustainable design, was an inevitable part of the equation.

Today, with an enviable list of prestigious names among its clients, the 79 Group still occupies a unique position – its fully integrated approach continuing to provide tangible benefits, from cost-savings and speed, to efficient change management and design continuity.
