Our Identity

Our Story

“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration,” there’s a reason Thomas Edison’s words are the opening line of this journey back in time. This great inventor believed in the power of light, just as we do.

Success is hard work, it’s faith, passion and above all, it’s people. Our story begins in 1989 in Zielona Góra. It was then that Czesław Wtorkowski and his son Ryszard founded the company, which today is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of luminaires. In 1991 the first company stores with lamps, household appliances and electrical appliances were established, planting the seeds of ideas about professional solutions and the use of expertise.

 The year 2005 turned out to be a breakthrough for LUG. It was then that we decided to focus on creating our own unique solutions and producing them ourselves. This decision paid off in 2007 with the company’s entry into the Warsaw Stock Exchange – the New Connect market, and the establishment of the LUG S.A. Group.

We allocated the acquired capital for development and investment which enabled us to move to a new office-production-warehouse complex in 2008. We gained momentum and began to implement increasingly large projects for partners located around the world. Our own production, staff of engineers, designers and experts allowed us to build a strong and recognizable brand in the lighting industry.

The following years were full of numerous awards, and we built the recognition of the LUG brand by marking our presence at the largest trade fairs and industry events. Investments in further development were also key! The expansion of the plant to include a production line for LED elements meant that on August 8, 2013, we had the first LED module fully produced at our plant in our hands.
A year later, we began construction of a new R&D and production center in Kisielin near Zielona Góra. The center was already up and running in 2015 and has become the hub of our technological thinking, filled with creative design and technology enthusiasts.

The interplay of light and shadow. A means to perfect harmony.

Our vision for the future and our drive to reach for greater and greater challenges led us, instead of standing still, to start building another factory in 2017, this time located in Argentina.

The global COVID-19 epidemic and the war in Ukraine left their mark on our sensibilities and united us around values such as aid, cooperation and trust. They also stimulated new layers of responsibility for the entire LUG community of more than 500 people, which was reflected in determination and hard work to overcome organizational challenges, logistical difficulties or supply chain disruptions. As a result, we entered the post-COVID era strengthened, as evidenced by the investment in the expansion of the Research and Development Center in Nowy Kisielin, completed in 2022.

Today, you can find our lighting solutions all over the world. We serve more than 75 markets on 5 continents. We are constantly making our environment not just safer, but also more pleasant to live in. Our product portfolio of more than 6,000 different versions of luminaires directly helps our Partners to take care of the climate by reducing electricity consumption, while meeting the needs of end users.

Our story and the DNA of the LUG brand consists of many small stories that make up our heritage. It’s the story of our founding family, but also the stories of our more than 500 employees, the stories of hundreds of luminaires, the stories of thousands of projects, the stories of dozens of awards. It’s the story of your world filled with our light.
