Everything starts small.
So did we…
It was a little store in Peristeri which marked our own start, back in 1991. In that small store, we started our exciting journey in lighting, originally by trading lamps and electrical equipment.
Every start is difficult. But we could never imagine a more promising start…
1991 Our journey starts by trading lamps and electrical equipment in a small shop in Peristeri (Attica)
1992 Setup of BEL Lighting in Belgium
1993 Creation of our own production facilities in Kallithea
That was only the start…
BEL Lighting started developing its exports in Europe and became the growth lever of our lighting business; not surprisingly, a few years later (1996), it launched its first product series wholly manufactured by our own factory in Greece.
A thrilling journey in the lighting business had just started followed by a long period of continuous investments.
1994 Development of exports in European markets
1996 Launch of our first product series under the brand 'BEL Lighting'
The relocation of our production to a larger space
in Renti and the purchase of our first CNC machine tool, were necessary in order to meet the growing demand for our products and acquire the capacity to process and machine materials for exterior lighting.
In Belgium, we constructed our own buildings of 1,200m2 in Tubize, which were designed and allowed for the highest efficiency of our logistics, sales and management operations.
And in 2008, we built our own factory in Megara in a total space of 3,000m2 which, until today, has been covering our growing needs of production, assembling and warehousing.
1999 Relocation of our production facilities in larger spaces of 950m2 in Renti
2000 Purchase of our first high-tech CNC machine tool for the manufacturing of exterior lighting
2004 Construction of our own facilities in Belgium to accommodate our logistics, sales and management operations for the European markets
2008 Construction of our own factory of 3,000m2 in Megara to accommodate our growing CNC machine shop, assembling and warehousing needs
In 2009, we set up TEFEL company
in Megara to be close and provide top services to our partners, clients and end users in Greece and Cyprus.
Continuous investments upgrade the quality of our products and services and the international markets show us the way to growing further…
Today, 80% of our total sales come from exports.
But we never forget where we started from.
Close to our first clients and partners in Greece, TEFEL is here to strengthen our local presence and provide unparalleled services and support to all valuable clients and partners in Greece and Cyprus.
