Lakro is a family business founded in 1964 by mister Libert. The name Lakro is derived from LAmpen en KROnen: lamps and crowns. Kronen is a Dutch word for flush mounts and ceiling lights.

In the 1990s his daughter opened a second business in Putten, also in The Netherlands.

Lakro was a wholesaler of lights until 2002. His daughter and son-in-law transformed the company into a car styling and car audio business that same year.
