Who we are Schréder Group is the leading independent outdoor lighting manufacturer in the world with more than 2 million light points sold per year. The company is present in more than 70 countries on 5 continents. The holding company of Schréder Group is Schréder SA, a privately-owned company, with registered offices at Rue de Lusambo 67, in Brussels, Belgium. The company’s ambition is to bring meaningful moments to people in public spaces by enhancing safety, well-being and sustainability. As such, Schréder’s Experts in Lightability TM work with customers to co-create smart lighting solutions for spaces that benefit people, the community and the planet.

Our history Schréder was founded in 1907 in Liège, Belgium, as a family-owned company. At the turn of the 20th century, electricity was the new promising technology. During the company’s first few decades, it explored the possibilities of this technology, innovating and manufacturing a variety of electrical equipment until it started to design and manufacture outdoor lighting products. From the very beginning, driven by a sense of purpose and adventure, Schréder expanded internationally through joint ventures across Europe and beyond. Over time, Schréder established a direct sales model worldwide, building with local experts and partners, and in close collaboration with cities. This proximity inspires innovation and enables Schréder to adapt its product portfolio to meet local needs better than others. To adapt to an increasingly globalised world, Schréder Group reorganised its supply chain and industrial footprint to maintain production centres close to its customers.

The Group’s manufacturing plants supply the regional or continental markets where they are located to better serve their customers and contribute positively to the local social fabric and environmental preservation. In addition to our extensive portfolio of luminaires, we develop cutting-edge connected lighting systems. These new systems enable the optimal use of light to further reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint, and also provide a platform to add innovative new features such as traffic and pollution sensors to improve the quality of life for citizens. More than ever, Schréder’s DNA of innovation provides significant added value to cities for managing smarter, connected, more efficient and more sustainable public spaces. At Schréder, this is called Lightability TM . Schréder is without a doubt a key partner for the city and the mobility of tomorrow.
