Quality and design innovation are in Astro’s DNA. When Managing Director John Fearon and Design Director James Bassant founded the company in 1997, they shared their considerable experience in the lighting industry and a specific vision of service and quality. This they combined with a passion for contemporary design.
Creativity and integrity are the core values behind this British but thoroughly international success story.
Today Astro is an established, dynamic and growing supplier to the top-end residential and hospitality markets. Astro’s lights sell in 34 countries, and its achievements earned a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in July this year.
True to its roots, the company continues to design and prototype all products in house, keeping the Astro signature unmistakable throughout the portfolio. Particularly pioneering is Astro’s development of IP 44-compliant bathroom lighting, a sector in which it can boast one of the most comprehensive ranges in the world.
Consistent and substantial year-on-year growth is testament to Astro’s close attention to detail in design and service, and to the dedicated staff at its 35,000 sq ft (3,200 sq. m) headquarters near London. With a committed distribution network and continuous product development, Astro remains as ambitious as ever.
