Purchase of our brand-new office at Nijverheidsweg 2 in Appingedam. We believe that we will be able to expand at the industrial site “De Woldweg”. The office and warehouses are now at the same location. We work on projects throughout the whole of the Netherlands, mainly in the western cities and in the south.
The crisis looms… Companies close down or announce an investment stop. By pulling out all the stops and taking a different direction we set out to reverse the decline. We sell our first LED light fitting! The innovative LED technology presents opportunities for our clients in the areas of lighting technology and energy savings. We gradually change the name Scandinavia Trading into Double Lux Lighting. The slogan remains ‘more light, lower costs’.
Double Lux Lighting now also supplies lighting calculations! Marije Bouwhuis, lighting advisor, uses the DiaLUX software to produce professional lighting calculations for projects, which yield information about the lighting level, how the lighting is experienced and the energy consumption. We receive our first major order from Ryanair Ltd.
We win the DamSTER! This is an award presented by the Municipality of Appingedam. The award consisting of a work of art made by Kés Aerts and a certificate is presented in the ‘Business’ category because Double Lux Lighting has become a major player on the European market!
In November 2015 we receive the FD Gazellen Award. This award is conferred and presented by the newspaper Financieel Dagblad. During financial years 2012, 2013 and 2014 Double Lux Lighting BV is among the fastest growing Dutch companies. Its turnover and profits show structurally healthy development! We enter for the FD Gazelle Award again in 2016.
