Blog: Future’s Bright for Blachere Illumination UK

For over 50 years Blachere have designed and manufactured industry leading illuminations, lighting up some of the most iconic buildings and landmarks across the world. 

As Managing Director UK and Ireland region, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing the evolution of the lighting industry first hand for over four decades. 

From street lighting to underground utilities, my journey has been diverse, but it’s the development of festive lighting that truly ignites my passion. 

Festive lighting isn’t just about illumination; it’s about creating unforgettable experiences and fostering a sense of wonder in communities worldwide.

At Blachere, we pride ourselves on innovation and sustainability coupled with guiding values of Ethics, Experience and Emotion. Our ability to manufacture most of our products in-house gives us a competitive edge, allowing us to set procurement timelines and maintain unmatched manufacturing efficiency. 

Our latest innovations, the Bioprint and Recyprint eco-friendly product lines, represent a significant leap forward in sustainability, replacing 80% of our aluminium usage and setting new marketing leading standards in the lighting industry.

What sets us apart is not just our products but our approach. From conceptualisation to installation, we work alongside our clients to help make their visions come to life. 

Whether it’s transforming a shopping centre into a winter wonderland or dressing a city centre with summer installations, our in-house designers and international design teams collaborate to create authentic experiences that resonate with audiences across more than 30 countries worldwide.

Looking ahead, I see a bright future for the lighting market. I believe festive, summer and other seasonal and occasion-based installations not only enhance the identity of towns and cities, but also drive economic and social benefits, including increased footfall and revenue. 

As families return year after year to enjoy these experiences, I believe the demand for themed experiences and displays designed to enliven our streets will continue to evolve and Blachere will be at the forefront of innovation and creativity as an industry leader. 

Innovation, sustainability, and collaboration are the cornerstones of our approach at Blachere, and as we look to the future, we remain committed to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of festive lighting.
