AT THE HEART OF RIDI GROUP
Established in Germany in 1952 RIDI Lighting is one of the major brands in European lighting. The company prides itself on being family-oriented company with a personal touch – and a value on personal service. From the days of producing domestic diffuser luminaires, RIDI transitioned into technical luminaire design in the 70’s and has built heavily on this experience since.
Engineering values have always been an important aspect of the RIDI brand and they pride themselves on producing over 90% of their items in Germany at one of their three major plants. This is important for the company’s integrity.
RIDI products have a reputation for being exceptional value for money but without compromises. Engineering is at the heart of every RIDI product and producing the product at the right price point in the market is a huge challenge if you do not want to undermine your integrity. RIDI achieve this through efficient product design and a high level of investment in automation and machinery. The investment in plant gives them total production and design flexibility to produce at the optimum price.
FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
The RIDI product brand is all about outstanding functionality, innovative technology and maximum efficiency. RIDI’s careful and measured approach to product design and production means luminaires that are truly good value with low energy usage and a long service life. In the true spirt of Bauhaus, the design of a product must have a reason – hence form always follows function. The result is a product that is naturally simple and timeless.
The use of high-quality materials and superb workmanship, top to bottom production and strict quality controls all work together to ensure that every luminaire leaving our factory gives our customers the solid assurance of “Quality made by RIDI” and “made in Germany”.
ENGINEERED FOR PHOTOMETRIC PERFORMANCE
With all in-house testing facilities at our disposal, RIDI can produce all elements of the product which means we can fuse all the materials together to produce the most efficient LED designs. The materials and design of the product are essential for good thermal management – which means longer life. Good LED optical design means little wasted light and our new REY product shown here is the perfect example of that.
ENGINEERED TO LAST
RIDI has a range of heavy industry luminaires that have been designed and constructed to perform in all types of interior environments. Using high grade alloys and a state-of-the-art paint plant, the products can stand the test of time. Essential when looking at the cost of shut downs in production for repairs and maintenance.
BUILT FOR DEMANDING
RIDI produce a wide range of products for all environments and have produced one of the best performing sports hall luminaires on the market. Designed to DIN 18 032, our ball proof luminaires are not only thoroughly tested but are also designed to be comfortable for the competitor with important glare control.
When RIDI produce a new product, an essential ingredient is longevity and long availability in the marketplace. Products therefore must be thoughtfully designed in order to look fresh many years after launch. This is essential because at RIDI as they offer a 10 years commitment to parts availability, so the customer has the comfort of knowing we don’t design products that will soon be obsolete.

Most the recessed product lines can be adapted and produced for all major ceiling types and we can also produce special variations when required.
