I am pleased to announce the launch of Australia’s newest commercial, industrial and architectural lighting company

“FOS Lighting”

Given the various industry movements of late along with the significant leaps in technology I feel the time is right to re-enter this innovative space.

The FOS Lighting story is interesting in itself, FOS is the Greek word for light but FOS Lighting is also the first lighting company I worked for over 35 years ago.

Team FOS is currently working on its first acquisition and we look forward in making a major impact to this dynamic industry.
