Commercial Lighting Systems Ltd was formed in Hampshire back in 1991 by two of its present directors, Phil Cutting and Don Falstein. Their shared passion for improving the quality and energy consumption of lighting in the Commercial industry forged a company strongly committed to supplying only the highest quality energy efficient products to the market. Staying at the forefront of technological advancements since 1991, as well as establishing significant relationships with international manufacturers with similar values, has enabled Commercial Lighting to deliver on that commitment for over 25 years.

Starting as a small team of young and enthusiastic lighting specialists, Commercial Lighting has developed into a family of just under 30 loyal employees, many exceeding 20 years service with the company. Our current size allows Commercial Lighting to facilitate any scale of project while keeping a streamlined staff turnover, as well as maintaining our much valued personal approach to business. With the appointment in 2003 of Sales Director Howard Lawrence, Commercial Lighting has further developed its long-term relationships with many well known blue-chip clients and has grown steadily to become recognised as a leading manufacturer and supplier in the UK and beyond.


Commercial Lighting is based in a 13,000 sq ft premises in Swanwick, Hampshire. Located between the South Coast port towns of Southampton and Portsmouth, and immediately adjacent to the M27 motorway, we are ideally situated for both distribution and for clients wishing to visit our Head Office showroom. Having occupied the same, albiet expanded, premises since the company's formation, we have been able to develop strong long-term relationships with other local businesses, meaning that much of our metalwork is locally produced by trusted manufacturers.
