Nordland (Pty) Ltd was established in 1967 in South Africa as an importer of luminaires from Europe. Over the years it became apparent that our future lay in local manufacture and a process of import substitution began. Nordland (Pty) Ltd manufacturers in South Africa a large range of explosion proof for Zone 1 and Zone 2 locations, stainless steel and glass series, a version in glass fibre reinforced polyester body with polycarbonate lens luminaires.
|Care has been taken with the design of the various light fitting ranges to ensure that they are sufficiently robust to meet the requirements of the mining and other industries in Africa, and yet be internationally acceptable. In keeping with international requirements a continuous gasket pouring machine was imported from Europe, to ensure Nordland remains at the forefront of local manufacture.|
