On the occasion of the company‘s anniversary, the central warehouse in Lindlar is extended by 2000 sqm to cope with the throughput of 2 million products per year.
The former administrative headquarters of B.E.G. was converted into a research and development centre with its own lighting laboratory. Networked products (such as DALI, LON and KNX) have already been a focus of B.E.G. for a long time and the new development centre allows market demands to be met promptly and effectively.
The new administration and training centre was built right next to the production and distribution centre. Of course, a modern KNX bus system with in-house B.E.G. products is used for the building, which enables operating costs to be reduced.
On an area of almost 4 hectares, the first section of the site was used to put into operation today‘s European sales and logistics centre with attached production and development department. Just four years later, the logistics centre was expanded by several thousand m² to meet the increasing demand.
Development of the first occupancy detectors with brightness sensors for daylight-dependent light control. With the rapid development of building automation and the associated increa¬sing demand for intelligent control products, the range of daylight and presence-dependent occupancy detection has been continuously extended.
The first B.E.G. branch was established in France. Since then, the number of branches has been steadily increased. Each branch and agency offers excellently trained staff to pro¬vide customers with the best possible support in all matters relating to building automation.
As one of the first companies in Germany, B.E.G. started with the production of motion detectors and automatic lights. The trademark LUXOMAT® was registered for this purpose. Since then, B.E.G. has produced several generations of motion detectors, which were primarily used outdoors at a building and were mainly used for security purposes.
A fire destroyed the entire company building overnight, the administration and production had to be rebuilt.
The cornerstone of the comprehensive product range was the development and production of emergency luminaires. A little later, the production of group supplies for emergency lighting systems followed. Even today, B.E.G. still carries emergency lights in its product range, of course at the cutting edge of technology with energy-saving LED technology.
