Originally founded as “Neon Richter” in 1993 by Bernd and Marion Richter in Heubach. Richter lighting technologies GmbH, was first a manufacturer of custom neon high-voltage tubes and lighting systems for use in trade fair construction.
In the early 2000s, Richter made a strategic shift to focus on more sustainable concepts in general lighting, leveraging energy-saving technology like LEDs lights, DALI controllers, and sensors. This shift fueled our sustained growth and led to the development of products like our LED luminaires combined with our suspended ceiling systems, now featured in major retail outlets worldwide.
This transformation also inspired our “90-10 philosophy,” developed to efficiently meet clients constantly evolving needs and address major challenges faced in the construction industry such as, labor-intensive tasks, environmental impact, long construction cost and completion times, and materials’ life-cycle considerations.
The philosophy ensures we fulfill our commitments to deliver clear cost, clear lead-time, and clear quality for every project. We have used this philosophy to successfully deliver over 250 projects globally, on-time and with 100% client satisfaction.
Our vision is to create “perfect” human spaces. Perfect to us means: A space that is aesthetically pleasing, with appropriate lighting that maintains and supports health. A space that is acoustically optimized, with a low background sound level that is gentle on the ears, facilitating enjoyable and focused conversations and a room that is pleasantly tempered without drafts by radiant heat alone. In summary a space where one feels good and is a pleasure to spend time in.
