Experts in Lighting
Established in 1996, Scotlight results from over 30 years of experience in the commercial and Ecommerce lighting industry. We are Experts in Lighting, having started as a lighting design company and later expanding into the supply of domestic and commercial lighting products through our trusted brand network. In August 2006, we launched the Scotlight Direct website. In addition, we moved the business to focus solely on online, an e-commerce lighting-focused platform that focuses solely on bringing the best lighting designs to our online customers.
We are proud to be part of SM Electrical Supplies LTD, established in 1988 by Steven MacDonald and operates electrical wholesalers throughout Scotland, and remains a family company with over 30 current employees.

Our Green Policy
At Scotlight Direct, we are committed to being a greener company. Our green policy has two main parts: energy consumption and packaging. We use energy-saving light bulbs where possible throughout our showroom, offices, and dispatch area. These simple steps mean we consume far less energy, change light bulbs less often, and recycle any energy-saving light bulbs which eventually fail. Because we ship large volumes of items through our internet site, we use a lot of packaging per month. To reduce waste and operate more efficiently, we recycle all the packaging and boxes that items from our suppliers arrive in. In addition to this, we have also approached other businesses to recycle packaging that would otherwise be thrown out.
