Background

Much has changed in lighting over the 40 years since Australume launched in 1974.
Lighting technologies have become smarter. Systems have grown smaller. Energy efficiency has soared. Throughout the decades we’ve kept pace with these changes, bringing our customers high-performance luminaires, fully customised to any setting and any budget.
We’ve also kept the future in our sights. We’re at the forefront of LED lighting manufacture in Australia, and our ultramodern plant and equipment has us ready to take on any future of lighting.
Some things haven’t changed. Our vision, drive and knowledgeable staff ensure we consistently deliver the best possible solutions to our clients.
We maintain a solid skill-set, nurturing a qualified team of engineers, sales consultants and assembly staff who follow stringent systems to roll out orders for customers across Australia.
Australume – limitless in vision.

Approach

From the beginning, Australume recognised the need for an Australian manufacturing and sales facility to produce project-specific lighting in any volume.
We understand the intricacies involved in creating custom lighting. From our client’s brief comes an inventive and robust solution.
Our thoroughness sees customers stay with us for years – even decades.
We’re as proudly committed to our suppliers as we are to our customers. Australume uses only premium grade components, sourced from the world’s leading brands, ensuring failure rates are kept to a minimum. Australume stands to protect its longstanding reputation for quality and service.
Because we believe that lighting truly is a system, not a bulk shipment of parts.
