r Million Lighting - History


The origins of Million Lighting extend back to 1967 with the founding of Million Electric Company (MEC), which operated from a shophouse along North Bridge Road, providing lighting installation, wiring and repair services. It was a very humble beginning but as the company’s reputation for quality and reliability grew, so did the business.

In 1974, Million Electric emerged as one of the pioneer lighting companies in Singapore, opening its first showroom in Plaza Singapura retailing lighting fixtures. Business flourished, boosted by the boom in HDB development. In 1979, the company moved to larger premises at Racecourse Road. The opening of its second showroom followed a few years later. By this time, the company had firmly established itself in the retail and distribution of decorative lighting, locally as well as to customers in Malaysia and Indonesia.

Keeping pace with international lighting design trends and innovations, the business continued to evolve over the years, from a traditional decorative lighting supplier to a full lighting specialist. This led to Million Lighting Company being established in 1983 to maximise the potential of the rapidly expanding lighting business. Today Million Lighting provides distribution, lighting customisation and technical support in the areas of decorative, architectural and technical lighting. Meanwhile, Million Electric is focused on the retail and distribution of lighting supplies, mainly to the building contractor industry. In 1985, Million moved to its present premises at Kallang Way.

Not only is Million one of Singapore’s oldest lighting companies, it has grown into one of Singapore’s leading lighting companies with a vision to become a global leader in providing holistic lighting solutions. Its portfolio of lighting projects spans landscaping and exteriors, residential, hotel, retail and corporate properties as well as mixed-use developments.
