A history of Astro Lighting

Astro Lighting was founded in 1997 by James Bassant and John Fearon, a duo with a shared passion for quality and precision in British lighting design. The company has built a great reputation for unique, creative designs which demand the brand's signature simplicity.

The company began in the basement of a house in Sevenoaks, where John and James began their journey into lighting design. Astro Lighting quickly became highly-regarded in the design world due to the iconic Arc Spotlight, which perfectly captures the designers’ fresh thinking and simplistic style. The Arc light was a first for the world of lighting design, providing the perfect fusion between the latest technology and modern architectural design. This ground-breaking design paved the way for the company, which quickly became known across the UK as the leading designer for bathroom lighting.

By 2001, the rapidly growing design team was ready to enter the international market. Astro Lighting began to explore possible export routes and the company began to grow in areas around the world. Ten years later, Astro Lighting set up headquarters in New Jersey within the USA, under the brand name Astro USA. The company has now established trading links with some of the largest lighting providers across the country.

The latest expansion plans for the company involve opening a new subsidiary in Singapore, to cover the Asia-Pacific region. This has brought the company to a total of 34 distributors around the world, proving that UK design is highly-regarded across the globe

Today, the wealth of experience brings the brand's design ethos to life. The strong design team paired with the customer support team are always looking to provide customers with the best experience possible. The whole Astro team here in the UK benefit from shared facilities, which guarantees the design values and customer ethos lie at the heart of the work environment.
