We have been producing swiss luminaires since 1948.
That is when Albin Huber-Landolt, together with his wife Louise Huber-Landolt, started producing fluorescent lamps. The idea to enter the new luminaire market came from Paul Pfister-Pierini, a first-class expert in the electronics sector. Thanks to his excellent contacts, TULUX AG was able to win major electronics wholesalers as its clients.
In 1949, Albin Huber-Pfister joined his father’s company and took on the area of new customer acquisition. From 1955, the second son, Louis Huber-Hüppin, having completed his studies in elec-trical engineering, also worked in the family business as technical manager. Together, the two brothers Albin and Louis Huber transformed the small business in Tuggen into a company operating on an international level, which is still managed by the third generation of the Huber family today. Then as now, these family ties laid the foundation for one of the most important luminaire manu-facturers in Switzerland, and ultimately for SWISS LIGHT CREATIONS.
What started as a one-man operation in 1948 is now a family enterprise with 200 members of staff, producing over 8,000 different luminaires.
