30,000 lights and lamps, more than 370 highly-motivated and competent employees, 15,000 m² of office and warehouse space and over 10 years experience in selling lighting products - these figures illustrate the success story of Europe’s leading online specialist for lights and lamps.
In 1999, the founder and managing director, Thomas Rebmann, began to sell selected high-quality lights via eBay after having finished his training to become an electrical engineer. Resources were limited in those days. He had to improvise and exploit the available resources to the full – an approach which still makes Lampenwelt dynamic today.
What initially began as a source of extra income became a huge success. The company understood the customers' needs and offered a unique range of products. "At this time, at the end of the 1990s, online trading was still in its infancy.
However, with optimal service, a high level of motivation and a lot of endurance, we succeeded in winning over the trust of customers and suppliers", recollects Thomas Rebmann.
