Our origins

1969 marks the starting signal for the EGLO success story: Ludwig Obwieser launches the enterprise “EGLO Leuchten”. In 1976 the inauguration of the first own manufacturing plant in Pill in the Tyrol / Austria is a further milestone.

In the mid 1980s EGLO has established itself as one of the leading European luminaire manufacturers. The company pushes the expansion into new markets, and in 1986 the first sales company is founded in Germany, as the first stepping stone on the path to the internationalization of EGLO. Due to the persistent development of new markets there are now more than 50 sales companies worldwide, all of which are mostly autonomous in their market operations.

Today, EGLO is one of the most successful providers worldwide of decorative lighting solution for residential purposes. This success is the best proof for the customer satisfaction, and we have every reason to be very proud of that.
