History – from Luma to Aura Light

During the years of 1924-1939 the Phoebus cartel existed among lighting companies in the industry, with a purpose to raise the prices of light bulbs, while controlling the life expectancy of the lamps. As a reaction to the cartel the company of Lumalampan was started, and this was the start of what is known as Aura Light today.

Luma was established in Stockholm in 1930 and the first incandescent lamp was manufactured. The export flourished and during the following decades sales companies were founded around the world.

In 1980 Aura Light produced the first Long Life fluorescent lamp based on patented technology. In 1994 the name of the company changed from Luma to Aura Light.

Today Aura Light continues to grow with our mission to enable customers to reduce cost and become sustainable. There has been a strong expansion during the later years and now Aura Light’s sustainable lighting solutions are sold all over the world.
