Dear Sir / Madam,
Thank you for your continued support

As you may or may not already be aware, following the enactment of the Minamata Convention on Mercury on August 16th 2017, the production, import, and export of all mercury lamps is to be prohibited from 2021. We regret to announce that consequently, as of June 2020 we are no longer accepting any new production orders of our mercury lamp range.

Where possible, any orders received from July 2020 onwards will be fulfilled from existing stock items, but please be aware that as this is limited, we may on occasion be unable to fulfil all orders. We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding in regarding this matter.

To our valued customers who have supported this product line over the years, we would like to offer our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

  • Effective December 31st 2020, all high pressure mercury vapour lamps for general lighting applications will prohibited.
  • Production of our ceramic metal halide, metal halide, and high pressure sodium lamp ranges will continue for the time being.
