Create a new relationship
between “people” and “light”

Light is the precious entity that gives energy to everything in the natural world. People seek for brightness in light, and light works on people in physiological and psychological way.

Through ergonomics approach, ENDO Lightning seeks to create human-friendly lights for one’ s body and mind. Beyond the light’ s functional brightness, we create further values in comfort and calmness, as well as security and safety.

To create a new relationship between “people” and “light” ,
ENDO Lighting will continue its challenge.

Not just light equipment.
Deliver “light environment”

What ENDO Lighting delivers is not just light equipment. We deliver “light environment” .

Supermarkets, for example, require an environment that “promotes customers to visit corners in a lively store” . Offices, on the other hand, require an environment that “is comfortable and lets you focus” .

With our lighting technology cultivated for more than 50 years, ENDO Lighting proposes the best lighting environment to solve the customers’ various problems.

Accurate simulation tool for unspecific “brightness” realizes the appropriate lighting plan.


Human-centric lighting
for our precious lives

Light is the precious entity that gives energy to everything in the natural world. People seek for brightness in light, and light works on people in physiological and psychological way.

Through ergonomics approach, ENDO Lightning seeks to create human-friendly lights for one’s body and mind. Beyond the light’s functional brightness, we create further values in comfort and calmness, as well as security and safety.


Uniform and beautiful,
yet long-lasting and secure

technical centre

ENDO Lighting fully controls the light emitted from light devices, through its original reflector and lens design.
We seek for the uniform and beautiful lights, with the minimum energy loss.

Furthermore, we thoroughly validate the durability, quake resistance, and waterproof property.
We not only comply to international standards, but also conduct internal standard tests in more rigorous perspectives.

ENDO Lighting products are long-lasting and secure.



Contribute to sustain and
improve global environments


Lighting is essential to our cultural life.
However, lighting requires huge resources and has many issues relating to the global environment.

Creating better environments with less resources and energy.

ENDO Lighting pursues eco-friendly products through various activities. It contributes to sustain and improve global environments.

Compliance to RoHS

We comply to the usage restrictions specified in “JIS the marking for presence of the specific hazardous substances (JIS C 0950 :2008)” and “the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances* in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS Directive).”
* Certain hazardous substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium compound, polybrominated biphenyl, polybrominated diphenyl ether

Sorting waste/ Recycling production process water


By introducing a non-drainage system, wastewater from the manufacturing process such as painting is regenerated and recycled. In addition, all waste in each process is sorted and recycled.


Global society has continued to undergo significant change in recent years and faces a variety of challenges, including climate change, poverty, and inequality. To address these challenges, the United Nations adopted "Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" in September 2015, setting forth the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Companies are playing an increasingly important role in achieving these goals.

Light is essentially an important element that gives vitality to people's minds and bodies. On the other hand, lighting requires a lot of energy and consumes a large amount of precious resources. Since our founding, we have taken on the challenge of achieving both an "enriched life" and " energy conservation."

In 2009, we were the first in the industry to convert all products to LED. In the nine years through FY2017, when the replacement of LED fixtures in the facility lighting market had almost run its course, we achieved a reduction of 1,512,000 tons of C02*.

We will continue to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs for a sustainable society by creating human- and earth-friendly light values such as comfort, relaxation, health, security, and safety, as well as improving energy efficiency through high-efficiency LED lighting and control.

* CO2 emissions reductions from LED light source fixtures sold during the period were calculated based on the difference between the CO2 emissions reductions from the same number of conventional fixtures sold and the amount of CO2 emissions reductions from the same number of LED light source fixtures sold.

Development of high efficiency lighting

By improving the efficiency of power supplies and optimizing LED packages, we are developing even more high-efficiency lighting fixtures to curb CO2 emissions.

Light Management as the norm

Dimming is the simplest way to save energy. We aim to create an era in which "lighting management as the norm."

Fixture design for maximum light utilization

Reduce energy loss by reducing excess light leakage from the fixtures and using it up effectively.

Light that matches human rhythms

Color control and dimming of the light creates the flow of the day and supports a healthy rhythm of life.

Glare control

Suppressing unpleasant light, we offer eye-friendly and enriching environments.

Indexing of sensation

Simulation tools are used to predict impressions such as "brightness" to achieve optimal lighting planning.

Evidence-based proposals

Studying the effects of light on psychology and physiology in collaboration with universities.


From basic knowledge of lighting to large experiments to explore the possibilities of light, we provide various topics related to light and lighting.

Lighting seminars

Seminars on basic lighting are offered where you can actually "feel" light and learn about it.

Talk events

Talk events featuring prominent architects, lighting designers, and professionals from different industries are held to unravel the future of light.

Environmentally conscious design

We are working to develop products that do not contain environmentally regulated substances. We also provide products that comply with the Green Purchasing Law.

Promoting resource recycling

Efficient use of resources, such as the adoption of a no-drainage system, along with recycling to reduce waste, is being promoted.

Better working environment

Improve productivity with a lighting environment that suits the purpose of the meeting

Better working environment

Make people's expressions more cheerful with high color-rendering lighting.
