Our story

Herrmans Group

Forward through innovation

Herrmans is a success story from Finland’s friendly and entrepreneurially minded West Coast. With our two leading brands, HERRMANS® and NORDIC LIGHTS® we have the global market as our work-field.

Today, Herrmans takes pride in being a modern and innovative high-tech house, producing world-class lighting solutions for the bike and heavy-duty vehicle industries. HERRMANS® is a European leader in bicycle components and a designer and manufacturer of award-winning heavy-duty work lights under the global brand, NORDIC LIGHTS®.

Starting with the production of our very first bike component in 1959, we believed in the creative power of innovation. Our founder, Bernhard Herrmans, realised the potential from the very first product, the rim tape, and he had the courage to automatize production early on. That entrepreneurial mindset remains strong in the company to this day. Herrmans has now been thriving for nearly 60 years, and possesses a wide variety of cutting-edge products in its premium product range.

At Herrmans we continuously invest in our own in-house R&D department, modern light and testing labs, and the latest in simulation software. This enables us to stay ahead of the game, keep creative and develop products according to highly set standards. We have the best product developers and engineers, who are constantly designing new and innovative world-class solutions.

Herrmans employs more than 250 people at its headquarters in Jakobstad, Finland, and in its subsidiaries in Germany, the United States, Taiwan, China and Brazil.
