Aqualuma LED Lighting is a Gold Coast-based manufacturer of commercial LED lighting. Owned by brothers Carl and Grant Amor, the company has been manufacturing energy-efficient commercial LED lighting for seven years now from its purpose-built facility at Helensvale. The range uses majority sourced Australian components and aluminium castings, and is assembled using local labour from the Gold Coast.
“Typically, companies make large energy savings by switching to energy-efficient LED lighting,” Aqualuma general manager Stephen Hobbs said. “Often, factories and warehouses will have outdated metal halide lights, which generally consume 400W per unit.
“Replacing these old lights with energy-efficient LED lights from 90 to 125W (depending on application) can reduce energy costs by over 75%. Across QLD, NSW, Vic and SA there are energy rebates available making the changeover even more affordable and in some cases, making it cash flow positive from day one through our range of financing options.”
The market for LED commercial lighting has been flooded over the past few years with imported product, inevitably driving quality down, Mr Hobs said.
“Aqualuma has responded to this challenge by launching a new product, the ‘Lite-bay’, which is complimentary to the existing LED Highbay lights.”
The new Lite-bay is still an Aqualuma high efficiency product, with 130w output, IP66 water ingress rating, marine grade epoxy powder-coated aluminium housing and heat sink, and is Australian made.
The Lite-bay was designed to provide a simple and cost-effective solution for clients requiring a straightforward luminaire with a high output where specialised optics, sophisticated controls and complex installations are not required.
The company has won many awards over the past few years. It exports itsrange to UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand. The Aqualuma range is available across all states having a team of national distributors and direct sales, typically working with some of the country’s leading logistics, wholesale and big-box retail stores.
