Our story

Nordic Lights Group

Forward through innovation

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

Today, we take pride in being a modern and innovative high-tech house, producing world-class lighting solutions for the bike and heavy-duty vehicle industries. Nordic Lights Ltd. is a designer and manufacturer of award-winning heavy-duty work lights, and Herrmans Bike Components Ltd. is a European leader in bicycle components.

Starting with the production of our very first bike component in 1959, we believed in the creative power of innovation. Our founder, Bernhard Herrmans, realized 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 Nordic Lights has now been thriving for 60 years and possesses a wide variety of cutting-edge products in its premium product range.

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.

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