A nice story

Created in 1950, the ALUMINOR company specializes in the creation, manufacturing and marketing of interior lighting, whether for decoration or the office.


ALUMINOR is one of the oldest French manufacturers of interior lighting and…one of the last still in operation, with manufacturing lines in France!

In the 1970s, ALUMINOR had up to 80 employees and produced more than 100,000 luminaires per year.

Then the heirs of ALUMINOR decided to favor imports of lights, in particular desk lamps, to the detriment of lights manufactured in its workshops.

The adventure continues

This family business was bought in 2018 by Richard BARBETT and Vincent OVERNEY. In 2021, by mutual agreement, Richard bought Vincent's shares.

Since the acquisition of ALUMINOR, the strategy is once again to favor French manufacturing and to limit imports of lighting fixtures as much as possible.

Responsible manufacturing

This development in the manufacturing of lighting fixtures in the ALUMINOR workshops near Nice is combined with the implementation of an ambitious CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy , in particular to limit impacts on the environment as much as possible.

A committed team

The current ALUMINOR team is doing everything possible to write exciting new pages in the history of this "industrial nugget of our region"!
