Falkenbergs Belysning

No information can be found about the Falkenbergs Belysning AB company. The company was at least active since the 1950s. At some point it was sold to Fagerhults Belysning. The name Falkenbergs Belysning is no longer in use.


The Fagerhults Belysning (lighting) company was founded by Bertil Svenssons in 1945 after he designed a floor lamp for his mother in 1943.

From a small shed in the backyard the business grew until it was the large company that it is today. In 2018 Fagerhults has about 2600 employees in approximately 20 countries around the world. The factory remained at the same location, but has now been extended about 40 times. Production facilities are also located in Great Britain, Australia and China.

In 2007 Fagerhults was awarded the Red dot design award.

The Fagerhult Group is the owner of the brands: Fagerhult, Ateljé Lyktan, Designplan Lighting, Eagle Lighting, I-Valo Lighting, LTS Licht & Leuchten, Waco, Whitecroft Lighting, Arlight Lighting Innovations, LED Linear and WE-EFAB Fagerhult‘s share is traded on the Nasdaq Stockholm (Mid Cap).
