10 BEKA SCHRÉDER Product Catalogue
BEKA Schréder (Pty) Ltd started operations in 1978 in Namibia, a country that has one of the most corrosive
climates in the world. The first products in manufacture were corrosion-resistant Glass Fibre Reinforced
Polyester Poles and Public Lighting luminaires that continue to provide long-term solutions for the
hostile coastal and inland environments. Due to the success of our products becoming firmly established
in neighbouring South Africa, the decision was made in 1981 to move the head office and factory to
Olifantsfontein, a strategically positioned industrial town situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria.
In 1989, BEKA Schréder became South Africa s first lighting company to be awarded ISO 9000 certification. This
commitment to quality became the company s hallmark and has enabled us to become Africa s largest lighting
manufacturer and market leader in exterior lighting. Since 2002, we have had a partnership with the Belgian
company, Schréder - a multinational lighting company with 48 operational sites across five continents. In 2013,
we became a wholly owned Schréder company, allowing us to continue to deliver the highest levels of service
and the best global lighting innovations available on the market today.
We provide full scope solutions to enhance people s lives on a daily basis in terms of safety and well-being in
the most sustainable way. We offer lighting solutions in the following categories:
Ambiance | Road & Urban | Tunnel | Illumination | Sport | Transit | Industry | Campus
