Product Philosophy

Hess invests a great deal in the development of energy-efficient lighting products, which has helped produce one of, if not, the most diverse ranges of efficient street lighting available on the market. This is a major reason why Hess is one of the first choices of cities and municipal governments planning the complete replacement or upgrading of existing lighting systems. The energy-efficient products employ precision-engineered optical systems with computer-designed reflectors, state-of-the-art light sources, such as LEDs, etc., providing the operator with superior economy and unparalleled lighting quality.
Besides lighting, Hess manufactures street and site furnishings, making it one of the few manufacturers capable of providing architects and designers with the products for a consistent overall design. The unique design, the distinct high quality as well as the optics that are precision designed to each respective application, the maintenance-friendly construction, the high-grade materials and the sound workmanship have helped forge Hess' reputation as well-known and leading brand on the international market. Hess products are being exported far beyond the European borders.
Another great benefit Hess offers is the extensive personal support on projects. Experienced Hess experts assist architects, lighting professionals, town and city planning boards, building constructors and owners in every stage of the project, including planning, installation, design and development of custom solutions.
The company is DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 and DIN EN ISO 14001:2009 certified.
