40 Years Expertise in light (Kompetenz in Licht) 

In May 1983, Rudolf Thurner founded "LICHT Zentrale" on 300 square metres as a wholesale and retail business for lighting fixtures, which was later expanded to include electrical installation materials. In 2004, "LICHT Zentrale Thurner GmbH" was taken over by the Würth Group and has since been part of the Electrical Wholesale business unit within the Group.

In 2005, the strategic decision was made to concentrate exclusively on the sale of lights and illuminants in order to focus the profile and market presence of "LICHT Zentrale" as a lighting specialist. The company is therefore renamed LICHTZENTRALE Lichtgroßhandel GmbH in 2006. The company's headquarters were moved from Nuremberg to Ansbach. Since then, we have enjoyed steady growth.
