Our range of products by style

We are excited to announce that from the 11th April, we will based in a new location. This latest expansion comes on the heels of continued year-on-year growth and is one of several exciting announcements we can’t wait to share with you.
Just ten minutes from our current location, the site is over 8,000 sq ft bigger and situated in the west of Basingstoke, which is easily accessible from the M3 motorway.
Our new facility comprises over 14000 sq ft of warehouse space, ground floor offices and purpose-built staff areas, providing much-needed additional space to help us to deliver on our promises and guarantees.
We have become known for some of the industry’s best lead times for standard products. We currently state a maximum eight-week delivery time; but the majority of our products are in fact delivered within 4 weeks. The extra capacity for stock storage at our new location will help us to ensure this commitment is met. Including our market-leading 24-hour quote turnaround.
“We’re very pleased to announce the opening of our new Grafton Way premises,” says Tim Baker, Managing Director of Acrospire. “This is not only an opportunity to implement greater automation within our factory, allowing us to expand our manufacturing capabilities further and meet the market’s growing needs, but also provides the vital space we need for our evpzee EV assembly and storage.”
Tim continues, “This new location will allow us to increase our stock holdings to better align our services with our customer’s demands in a rapidly changing landscape and help us to deliver on our commitments.”
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
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.
Working from a rented office by day and assembling lanterns in a garage at night, Tim and Hatty set to work.
11 Years later
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.
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
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.
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.
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 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

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
