Holophane Celebrates 125 Years

Holophane Europe will be celebrating 125 years of trading this month; an amazing achievement and a testament to the Holophane brand, and all the dedicated employees over the decades.

Founded in 1896 in London, headed by Alexander Pelham Trotter, it marked the start of an incredible history that has now seen Holophane become a global business revered throughout the world for its expertise, quality, innovation and excellence in lighting.

Holophane’s first product was the famous patented globe in ‘white’ or ‘rose crystal’ that sold for around 2 shilling (10p). Today, Holophane continues this proud tradition with our values deeply rooted in the dedication to creating luminaires, with exceptional lighting performance, innovative patented technologies, and delivering added customer value beyond illumination.

Holophane is believed to be one of the oldest lighting companies still trading today with the same name.

For more on Holophane’s 125-year history be sure to check on Holophane’s social media channels where Holophane will be releasing month-by-month a comprehensive timeline of their history.

Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic has required Holophane to adapt original celebration plans this year. Instead, Holophane are celebrating virtually with a charity event, raising money for the British Heart Foundation in memory of Mark Field, a valued member of staff who sadly recently passed away from a heart attack.

To raise money, Holophane staff and family members are individually aiming to run, cycle, walk or swim our way to 125 miles of Covid-friendly exercise during the lockdown. Holophane have started a Just Giving page to allow anyone of their friends, staff, and businesses partners or customers to kindly donate.

Holophane would love your help and support, so if you would like to contribute, please click the following link:


Look out for Holophane’s charity event video at the end of March on social media channels and  the Holophane website, to see team Holophane virtually coming together, at a time where we psychically can’t, to raise money for meaningful cause.

All staff at Holophane are proud of the long history and heritage and are thrilled to be celebrating such an amazing achievement.

Holophane would like to extend their thanks to all past and present employees, partners, and customers, who have all been part of this incredible 125-year history.
