Global leader in solar public lighting, Fonroche sets sights on Asia

Building on its strong presence in Africa and on the American continent, Fonroche Lighting, the global leader in solar lighting solutions, is expanding its business development to Asia

Fonroche Lighting has confirmed its involvement at the Asian Utility Week exhibition and conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 3 and 4 September.

The event will be an opportunity for the French company to present its range of solar streetlights to Asian decisionmakers and identify new local distributors to extend company sales channels.

Smart, powerful and durable solar lighting

More than ever, solar energy is being recognised as an environmentally responsible and sustainable alternative. Fonroche Lighting offers a complete range of solar streetlights for all environments and all applications.

The France-based company manufactures its products in the southwest of the country and has established itself as the global leader in this sector. In 2017 and 2018, the company won two large-scale international contracts for a total of 75,000 off-grid solar streetlights in Africa. One of these projects will provide lighting for one-third of Senegal.

Looking for new Asian partners

Fonroche Lighting is working hard to expand its business globally. Already present in Africa with subsidiaries in Senegal and Kenya, the company is actively seeking new distributors to partner with in Asia.

Asian Utility Week will be a chance to meet professionals from across the infrastructure, urban development and lighting sectors. Representing the brand and its solar solutions, distributors play an important local role in identifying new projects and helping ensure their smooth and timely delivery.

Fonroche Lighting is based in southwest France and is part of the Fonroche Group, a major industry player in renewable energies. In addition to its lighting business, Fonroche has extensive expertise in biogas and high-temperature geothermal solutions. Fonroche exports its technologies around the globe. The company employs over 200 people and has invested more than €600 million in renewable energies in France and internationally in the last 10 years.
