A century: Great people | Great instruments

The “Anton Paar” success story began on January 4, 1922, when Anton Paar started his metalworking shop. Back then, it was hard to imagine that this one-man metalworking shop would one day become a global corporation that currently has more than 3,500 employees.

What’s behind this success story?

It’s not just the unique quality of our instruments, which we manufacture with exceptional craftsmanship and the highest precision. Above all, it’s the people at Anton Paar who approach their work with enthusiasm, curiosity, and engagement.

At Anton Paar, we think the unthinkable to create the extraordinary. Every day anew, since 1922.

We’re ready and excited for the next chapter – the next 100 years.

BEKA Schréder (Pty) Ltd is Africa’s leading manufacturer of Luminaires and Glass Fibre Reinforced polyester (GRP) Poles.

Our objective is to provide the right lighting solutions by optimising the optical and mechanical design of luminaires. Using contemporary technologies, our goal is to always offer intelligent and sustainable lighting solutions in order to reduce energy consumption, as well as the overall cost of ownership.

BEKA Schréder (Pty) Ltd started operations in 1978 in Namibia, a country that has one of the most corrosive climates in the world. The first products in manufacture were corrosion-resistant Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester Poles and Public Lighting luminaires that continue to provide long-term solutions for the hostile coastal and inland environments. Due to the success of our products becoming firmly established in neighbouring South Africa, the decision was made in 1981 to move the head office and factory to Olifantsfontein, a strategically positioned industrial town situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria.

In 1989, BEKA Schréder became South Africa’s first lighting company to be awarded ISO 9000 certification. This commitment to quality became the company’s hallmark and has enabled us to become Africa’s largest lighting manufacturer and market leader in exterior lighting.

Since 2002, we have had a partnership with the Belgian company, Schréder – a multinational lighting company that is present in about 35 countries.
In 2013, we became a wholly owned Schréder company, allowing us to continue to deliver the highest levels of service and the best global lighting innovations available on the market today.

We provide full scope solutions to enhance people’s lives on a daily basis in terms of safety and well-being in the most sustainable way. We offer lighting solutions in the following categories:
Ambiance | Road & Urban | Tunnel | Illumination | Sport | Transit | Industry | Campus

We offer an extensive range of high-quality LED luminaires, most of which are locally designed and manufactured, making them the best suited for African conditions.
Our focus is on designing sustainable LED solutions, by making our designs FutureProof. We understand the importance of renewable energy solutions, and provide various solar-powered indoor and outdoor lighting products.

Our success can be attributed to the research and development of the luminaire and pole ranges, ensuring the appropriate mechanical and thermal product integrity in the environmental conditions of the African continent. The success of this approach provides a sound product identity that generates growth and expansion into other markets and territories. Our products are used in many infrastructure developments, such as roads and highways, residential and commercial areas, and town centres as an integral part of urban renewal programmes. BEKA Schréder products are exported into almost all African countries, as well as the Middle East, South East Asia, Europe, South America and Australia.
