  • Professionalism

    Our vision is to make life easier for our clients’, which means we’re not afraid to go the extra mile. We want to be known for our responsiveness and results.

    Quality and accountability is key (across all of our processes), which means taking responsibility and doing the right thing. Always.

    We believe in working smarter not harder. Every individual is empowered and encouraged to think outside of the box - because the less time we’re solving problems the more time there is for fun.

  • Made in Britain

  • Togetherness

    We are problem solvers, passionate about what we deliver and what we stand for - but most of all we are proud of our small but mighty team who are committed to making a difference.

The story of Acrospire

When The Light Went On

We’ve come a long way; working from every nook and cranny we could find (including Hatty’s garage) to our new 14,000 sq ft Basingstoke factory, we’ve continued to grow while keeping an eye on all the details .

Who owns Acrospire?

Unusually for the lighting industry we’re not owned by an international multi-conglomerate. We’re 100% independent and still owned by our original founders, Tim and Hatty.

Our story

When The Light Went On

The idea for Acrospire was formed in 2012 when founder Tim envisioned a different kind of lighting manufacturer: one that would not only deliver outstanding customer experiences but also prioritise fair treatment for its employees.

We’ve come a long way

Working from any nook and cranny we could find

Motivated by the belief the industry wanted and needed better, Tim shared his plan to establish his own venture with Hatty, who simply couldn't let him do it alone.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Protecting local jobs and ensuring the best quality possible.

The products sold should, where possible be manufactured here in the UK

Working from a rented office by day and assembling lanterns in a garage at night, Tim and Hatty set to work.

11 Years later

and a lot has changed

Acrospire now inhabits a 14000² ft manufacturing facility in Basingstoke, Hampshire. We’re a proud partner of the Made in Britain scheme, ISO9001 certified and a member of all relevant lighting industry trade bodies.

We've built a reputation to be proud of

Along with great relationships with our customers and a great team! We've attracted some of the most experienced members of the lighting industry, all by following one golden rule.

A simple ethos

Creating work to be proud of

That runs through all that we do. Customers who have made the switch to Acrospire have found working with us to be a breath of fresh air.

Market leading warranty

If you’re a professional in the lighting industry, you’re probably familiar with warranties that range from 3 to 10 years, with extensions available on special request or at additional cost. At Acrospire, where we’re proud to be different, we offer a market-leading simple 12-year warranty, as standard.

Tight Control on Quality

We focus on our customers not our competition. We manufacture our products in the UK: with the exception of our solar products, our supply chain is within a 60-mile radius of our factory in Basingstoke: to maintain greater control over quality. We al

Speed is key

Speed of response is crucial when it comes to resolving warranty issues. If we’ve made a mistake, we own it, get to the root cause, and fix it as quickly as possible. We believe in timely communication with our customers and making the resolution pro

Test and Test Again

We believe in independent testing and certification. Our new product development is in line with ISO 9001. Many of our products hold ENEC Certification. To meet the requirements of ENEC we also send random product samples for third party safety testi

Quality by design

Our product design is another key factor in our ability to offer a 12-year warranty. We value engineer rather than cost cut, never compromising on quality. We stick to our processes and engage with our supply chain to ensure that every product meets
