How is R&D engrained in Lumec’s history?
We continue to evolve our design process, to deliver solutions that are not only visually appealing but also ensure they maximize performance. Thirty years ago, team members were drawing with pencils, a compass and paper. Models were created from cardboard and Styrofoam. Now, we use 3D software and modeling to simulate our fixtures. Our engineers, designers, technicians and specialists innovate to adapt to the needs of our customers. These employees live all over the world, from Europe to the Americas, and our global interactions help us develop our high-quality lighting products. From visual comfort to connected solutions, we make luminaires that are easy to maintain and offer longer lifespans to enhance the liveability of your outdoor spaces for years to come.

When I joined Lumec, I designed a custom, decorative luminaire for the small town of Ste-Adele in the Laurentians. Today, I live in that small town, and I see that luminaire all the time. It’s still standing tall and lighting the area after more than 30 years! It’s a full circle moment. Whenever I see them, it reminds me of the start of my career.
