Looking back, moving forward

Bee Lighting (formerly Bee Design) was brought to life in 2006 by directors Colin Fulford and Paul Crees – born out of an opportunity to develop a lighting project for a newly formed US company. The main aim: to offer the same high quality of design and manufacturing as the global players, while offering a far more personal and responsive service. The rest, as they say, is history.

Starting out as an independent design office specialising in automotive design and development services, we quickly gained a reputation for excellence in low-volume automotive lighting design – assembling a pioneering, world-class team of lighting experts.

 

Trusted by many of the world’s finest vehicle brands, we continue to grow our expertise with each new project, designing, engineering and manufacturing robust, beautifully styled products, all under one roof.

Now reborn as Bee Lighting to reflect our primary focus on striking lighting for all types of vehicles, we are driven by our collective passion, ambition and a desire to deliver a service level that goes way beyond satisfaction. We look forward to continued expansion in the coming years as we consolidate our position at the forefront of the vehicle lighting industry.
