As the lighting technology continues to evolve, there’s one company that’s been influencing the industry for over 150 years. That company is BJB. We have been making technology for light since 1867, since petroleum gas was the single source of light, via oil lamps.
It Began with Petroleum Lighting
And it was BJB that produced the necessary accessories, notably the “Kosmos” and “round wick burner”. In our initial phase, BJB focused on manufacturing complete petroleum lamps. But eventually, we chose to focus on accessory components, which put us on our historic path to becoming the current world market leader.
Light Goes Electric and so goes BJB
As electricity rapidly spread, a new age was upon us. Major changes impacted the industry. With the evolution to electric, BJB gradually developed the electrical “Bridge to Light”, a parallel to our accessory components business within petroleum lights. BJB first produced lamp bases and then, as a result of standardization, the matching lampholders.
First came incandescent lamps, which were later followed by fluorescent, halogen and the various forms of discharge lamps. As the market rapidly evolved, BJB was at the forefront of quality and innovation. BJB earned the title of ‘world market leader’.
LED is Here to Stay
Another technical revolution is upon us, and it’s called LED. New concepts and flexible innovative designs are possible due to their structural forms and low thermal output. And again, the market had to rethink their position…and the same was true for BJB. New technological solutions were developed for the electrical connection, installation, and fixing of LED boards and COB modules. We are on the cutting edge of LED innovation and automation, as our modular accessory systems enable OEMs to produce individual solutions from electrical, mechanical, and optical components.
Trust from a Historic Brand
No other brand in the lighting industry has established the trust between our partners and clients the way BJB has. No other lighting industry brand has over 150 years of established experience, leading the way with innovative lighting solutions not just through decades, but over a century of historic innovation. Trust is earned by developing quality products that have a high return on investment for our partners. And BJB is proud to continue to lead the way after all these years. And that’s why we continue to be ‘Technology for Light’.
