Lighting has played a critical role in assisting humanity in pursuing its dreams. Since Thomas Edison invented the first incandescent light bulb in 1879, lighting solutions advancements have remained augmenting. Lighting has become an essential component of modern personal and professional lives.

The expansion of the commercial, industrial, and residential sectors has increased demand for various types and specifications of lighting. This resulted in the growth of the lighting industry, which includes manufacturers of illuminants, fixtures, and accessories, as well as the related trading and service sectors. The influx of several local and imported products, a diverse range of solutions, and concerns about durability, power consumption, efficiency, and safety have made it difficult for modern businesses to choose the best lighting solutions.

There is a need for dependable, safe, and energy-efficient solution providers who not only support power requirements but also add value to the property’s aesthetics. Abby Lighting & Switchgear Ltd, based in Mumbai, provides complete lighting solutions through its high-quality products, impeccable services, and complete project-based turnkey solutions tailored to business organizations’ specific needs. Furthermore, Abby Lighting offers full maintenance, upgrade, and other specialized solutions, making it a one-of-a-kind lighting specialist organization. The organization is led by its visionary Managing DirectorsSanjay Bajaj and Suresh Bajaj, the Co-founders, who have guided the organization through difficult times to the pinnacle of success it is today.

The Beginning of a Radiant Journey

Abby Lighting has been designing and manufacturing lighting systems using LED technology since 2000 and is a leading manufacturer of LED lighting fixtures in India.

The company was founded on the principles of tradition and high-quality craftsmanship. With over 30 years of experience in the lighting industry, it understands the dedication required to earn the business and loyalty of its clients. The three pillars upon which its business has been built and satisfies its customers’ needs are research, development, and innovation.

Abby’s expertise is in providing tailored lighting solutions for industries across sectors from its 85,000-square-foot design and manufacturing facility. Everything is managed systematically under one roof, from design to engineering and prototyping to production, packaging, and stocking.

It’s purpose-built factory (SMT lines, pressure die casting, spinning, profile cutting, powder coating, and various other CNC operations like bending, cutting, and turning) is perfectly synchronized with a motivated and trained workforce.

The organization is proud to be an authentic example of ‘Made in India,’ and this is its unique selling point. Abby Lighting has developed complete control over the entire production process through 100% in-house manufacturing, resulting in ON-TIME deliveries with near-zero defects.

Electrifying Leadership

Suresh and Sanjay have been at the helm of Abby Lighting for over three decades, steering the company to become a trendsetter in lighting designs for residential, commercial, and professional environments.

Both brothers are engineers who have established a reputation as architectural lighting manufacturers. The diverse experiences each has brought to the company are reflected in cutting-edge technical design, raw material analysis and selection, a fully in-house mechanical and electronic production cycle, and thorough product testing.

A family-run business means attention to detail, exceptional service levels, and strong personal contact, which has helped Abby Lighting become a national leader.

With the next generation Ms Rachna Bajaj Joshi, joining the company, the company’s future is assured, bringing additional dynamism and ambition to the team.

The Tech-Know-Logical Connection

Lighting consumes nearly 20% of all electricity consumed worldwide. Approximately 80% of that lighting is consumed in offices, industries, and streets, with the remainder consumed in residences. Abby’s products and solutions are designed to meet the needs of organizations, assist them in saving energy costs, and protect them from electrical maintenance headaches.

AI has emerged as a disruptive force in the lighting industry, demonstrating its ability to alter existing processes drastically. A lighting system powered by AI can optimize and tune light parameters based on the impact on user experience and well-being. Artificial intelligence can combine lighting control with automation to save money, reduce energy consumption and waste, and improve service quality and customer satisfaction. Minimizing a light’s energy output also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, allowing for a more sustainable environment.

Abby Lighting’s research teams are constantly working to incorporate the latest lighting technologies into its products because the company believes this is the future of lighting experiences. The company has formed alliances with global and local players across the smart and connected lighting spectrum.

Lighting Up the Developments

Despite the fact that the LED market is expanding rapidly, some factors influence the industry. High manufacturing costs, lack of awareness, and low-quality products produced illegally by fly-by-night operators are among the key challenges.

Abby Lighting has a strong manufacturing background and constantly implements new technologies and designs to reduce production costs. At the Abby Lighting studio, which also serves as an experience center, smart luminaires with various scene settings, daylight harvesting, lights that adapt to circadian rhythms, and so on, are demonstrated thus educating its clients on LED adoption which results in significant energy savings and a healthier way of life.

Mindful Reflections

Sanjay advises young entrepreneurs and professionals entering the lighting industry to develop a patient approach by learning more about the client, their property, and the area to be illuminated. He says, “The more information you gather from the client about their requirements, the clearer would be the idea that can enable you and your team to offer the right solutions.” While Suresh adds, “Always consider the customer’s needs and offer solutions that will meet their needs while adding value to their business.”

Rachna, the Director of Sales, adds, “Our clients’ happiness means everything to us.” She furthers that customers today are very demanding and know exactly what they want. “So, it’s imperative that we are always on top of our game, be it the products, the technology, and the services we provide!” 

Reflecting on an Enlightened Future

Abby Lighting’s core strength is its product design and 100% in-house manufacturing, distinguishing the brand and its products. Its focus in the near future will be on the smart lighting segment via advanced wireless solutions that are showing great promise.

We have all seen how the latest trends in automation are affecting the lighting industry,” Sanjay said. “Automation, previously only used in commercial/industrial settings, is now becoming popular in smart homes. Alexa and Google Home add a fun element and elevate the smart home concept,” added Suresh.

Crediting the significant benefits of smart lighting, he expects it to become the norm in residential and commercial lighting due to the important benefits it provides.
