Location Ense

The municipality of Ense is located on the northern edge of the Sauerland, on the south-western edge of the Soester Börde and consists of a total of 14 districts. The municipality, which has a population of over 12,000 and an area of 51.08 km², is located in the west of the district of Soest, which in turn belongs to the administrative district of Arnsberg in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Our plant is located in the municipality's largest industrial area, the Ense-Höingen industrial park. Located directly in the neighbourhood of the Arnsberg luminaire region, the proximity to renowned manufacturing and supplying companies from the luminaire industry is an advantage for our company.

Germany-wide distribution

We like to maintain personal contact with our customers. To ensure that everyone benefits from our individual and comprehensive support, we had four distribution centres built in 2015. The centres are located in the north, east, south and west of Germany respectively:

  • Pinneberg (Distribution Centre North)
  • Potsdam (Distribution Centre East)
  • Nördlingen (Distribution Centre South)
  • Ense (Distribution Centre West)

More than 70 sales staff in the field and in the office are now available throughout Germany as expert contacts for our customers at any time.

We distribute our products not only in Germany, but also internationally. In order to do justice to the national conditions, we are supported by both agencies acting as INOTEC and trade partners.

Our Sales Managers and Technical Service Managers of the Export Department are available to assist the respective countries in all technical and commercial matters.

To our agencies


Our customer service – a strong team

The tasks in customer service are manifold: Our more than 30 customer service employees are available to our customers on site. Be it in the basic programming of our products, instructing people in the operation of our products or advising on regulations and technical implementation. But also prescribed inspections or any repairs are carried out by the locally based team members.

From our headquarters, our customer service centre supports both our customers directly and our employees on site.

Our customer service hotline assists our customers with technical queries and rounds off our customer service portfolio.


Quality and safety

Safety also means quality is required when products have to function perfectly – especially in an emergency. That's why, as a company that saves lives with its products in an emergency, we see high quality as indispensable and place the highest demands on our safety-relevant components.

With our cross-departmental approach and regular inspections, we strive not only for maximum safety, but also for lasting customer satisfaction. Our 60-month manufacturer's warranty emphasises our commitment to quality and service.
