Ushio Germany looks back on a long history. Founded in 1968 as BLV Licht- und Vakuumtechnik GmbH, the company introduced a variety of innovative products to the market and became one of the leading manufacturers for specialized lighting solutions worldwide.
In 1990, the company was acquired by Ushio Inc., Japan, a world leader in highly specialized industrial lighting applications.
With the change of name from BLV to Ushio Germany GmbH in 2021, the company further underlines its global reach and its intent to use worldwide resources even more intensively in the future and to further advanced research and development of innovative lighting solutions.
BLV remains as an independent brand for sports facility lighting within Ushio Germany GmbH. Our well-known and trusted horticultural label HORTURION® will now be marketed under the brand name Ushio.
