C.C.E.A. was founded in 1985 with the goal of providing proper lighting for the workplace. In fact, C.C.E.A. was the brainchild of its founder, Bruno Celsan. In the early 1980s, he saw that workplace lighting was just limited to general lighting and felt that it was not suitable to provide efficient working conditions. Indeed, operators’ eyes would be subject to prolonged stress throughout the day, causing burning sensations, watering or headaches and would consequently impair their ability to perform their jobs. This brainwave led him to design the first lamp which illuminates the exact spot where the work is being performed. This revolutionary idea became our guiding star, our benchmark for creating effective lighting for every piece of machinery and workplace, in order to optimise the work process and protect personal health, while continuously operating with respect for the environment and using the highest quality materials.
With 3000 m2 of laboratory and production facilities, C.C.E.A. boasts a wide selection of excellent quality items thanks to our highly qualified team in the field of lighting. All our products undergo green light quality control to check their degree of protection and resistance to agents specifically for that product’s application. Our quality standards also come from the raw materials that are checked as they enter the warehouse, where they are tested and verified to ensure perfect conformity and functionality. Our range of products does not only cover lamps, but also services such as lighting consultancy, customised design and training.
Thanks to our machines, 3D printers and measuring instruments we can offer a complete service for the production of customized lamps. Our instrumentation includes a photogoniometer with high precision sensors that allows extremely accurate photometric measurements.
We see the possibility in light of optimising every professional situation, from major industrial factories to machinery for the smallest production.
In the early 80s the lighting for the workplace was limited to general lighting. Bruno Celsan, expert leather craftsman, felt that this type of lighting was not enough to work in good conditions since it did not guarantee comfort and wellbeing: you need the light where the work is performed. Hence, he began to design a lighting system for its field, the textile industry.
C.C.E.A. is born. The first lamps for sewing machines were produced. The slogan of the first adv is "Lighting the stitch on". It is an instant success.
C.C.E.A. increases its product lines and becomes leader of the first laser-diode pointer.
LED technology is born. C.C.E.A. creates the first led lighting systems for sewing machines with LED Ø5mm. We design the first LED pointer in the world.
We design the first LED lamp for industrial machines
C.C.E.A. designed and patents the first magnetic LED lighting system. From a simple intuition ... a great idea.
C.C.E.A. starts to design lighting systems for machine tools. The first lamps with a high degree of protection IP65 have been produced.
C.C.E.A. is leader of the lighting market for machine tools. The range of lamps includes general lighting systems. 60% of our production line includes custom-made lamps.
The workplace is not just a place where work is performed; it is also the place where we spend a large part of our day and a social gathering place. Working under optimum lighting conditions will increase workers’ quality of life.
C.C.E.A. lamps are made in full compliance with standard EN 12464-1 on lighting in the workplace, featuring an ergonomic design and a resistant structure suitable for industrial use. In line with this concept, C.C.E.A. was one of the first companies in the world to use LED technology ever since it was introduced to the market, which has helped enhance the quality of our products. In fact, monochrome, flicker-free LED lighting allows the operator to work under natural, constant light for many years, thereby avoiding visual impairments and reducing energy consumption by 50%.
We believe that light is a business tool, a means of improving the performance of every worker with innovative, environmentally friendly systems.
