Kicking off our Digital Wall of Fame, we’re thrilled to introduce you to one of our remarkable team members, Davide Demicheli. Davide is a Project Engineer at Acrospire with an impressive customer service record, decades of lighting knowledge, project management experience, and a commitment to continuous learning and improvement.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Davide and ask him questions about himself, his work at Acrospire, and what inspires him.
Tell us about yourself.
Hi, I’m Davide, in my role as Project Engineer at Acrospire I love to solve problems and turn challenges into solutions. In my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, spending time with my family, socialising and watching Chelsea Football Club.
What do you think is the best thing about Acrospire? What do you enjoy most about your role?
Acrospire is a great company to work for that genuinely values its employees and creates a dynamic, friendly and welcoming environment – which is important for fostering growth.
I love the fact every day is different: which means it’s never boring and I am always given the opportunity to get involved in new developments.
I was never a dog person, more of a cat man to be honest, but since working at Acrospire I have grown to love them. There can be anything up to four dogs running around the office. Chaos sometimes. But lovely all the same.
The company is inclusive and most importantly the staff are treated with respect.
I also like the fact that everyone mucks in no matter what job title they have.
We spend a lot of time at work and, so far, Acrospire has managed to give people opportunity, variation in their roles and have made it a fun place to be.
Who or what inspires you the most these days? Why?
Paul Canoville who set up the The Paul Canoville Foundation in 2015.
Paul was Chelsea’s first black footballer. Racially abused by his own Chelsea supporters on his footballing debut at Crystal Palace, he is widely regarded by the football community as a pioneer.
After his career was cut short through injury, and encountering many obstacles and hardships such as racism, homelessness, drug addiction, cancer and mental health issues, Paul wanted to give something back to the community and youth in particular.
The Foundation works with schools and youth organisations to promote confidence, well-being, diversity and resilience through workshops and sporting activities.
Racism, homelessness, drug addiction, cancer and mental health issues is a big list for a single human being to deal with and yet he has still come out the other side. Truly inspirational.
If there is one thing you could eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Anything my wife cooks (she is amazing!).
At Acrospire, we’re proud to have team members like Davide, who bring their expertise, passion, and commitment to delivering exceptional service to our clients.
To learn more about our fantastic team, tune into the next editions of our Digital Wall of Fame.
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
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
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
