WHO WE ARE…
In 1954 John Ellemor founded El-Electric, manufacturing and supplying low voltage fluorescent lighting for shop window displays in the inner city suburbs of Melbourne.
From humble beginnings in a back yard in Pascoe Vale, Victoria, John expanded the business as demand for Australian made energy efficient fluorescent lighting grew. The first El-Electric factory was built in Ferntree Gully in 1965 and in 1991 Rob Ellemor (son of John) took over the business and expanded again until the business outgrew the Ferntree Gully premises. In 1999, El-Electric moved to the Beenleigh factory in Queensland, where operations are still run from today.
El-Electric remains an Australian-owned, family-run business, and now managed by Glenn Ellemor (grandson) of founder, John Ellemor.
El-Electric products are carefully designed and selected to withstand Australian evironments and are manufactured to meet Australian standards.
The El-Electric lighting portfolio has expanded to reflect the advancements in technology and includes built-in smart sensors, wireless control, LED light sources for our circular ceiling luminaire range, LED panels, strip lighting, down lights and bespoke custom designs.
