Noral was founded in 1948 by Knut Eng in Orje, Norway. Since 1972, Askim has started to specialise especially in technical outdoor lighting products. The Eng family has started to carry out its competence in the field of lighting with the Noral brand since 1981. The Noral ownership of the 49-year-old Eng family has passed into the ownership of Lux Holding as of 1997. Between 1981-2003, Noral went on a strategic expansion by continuing its international incorporation, marketing and logistics operations in Sweden, England, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, Singapore, and the USA.

Ownership changed in 2010 and was acquired by ZOBRA. With this acquisition, the headquarters of the company, which has been in Norway since its establishment, was moved to another Scandinavian country, Sweden. Working with world-renowned and award-winning design offices such as Jean-Pierre Vitrac and Hallvard Jakobsen to reflect the Scandinavian design approach to the design processes, Noral continued to develop its activities to manufacture luminaires and decorative lighting poles tailored to the needs of cities. In 2014, Noral was purchased by Auralight, one of Sweden’s largest lighting companies, owned by the SEB (Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken) bank with a market value of $24 billion.

With the slogan Made in Sweden, it has tended to serve premium product segments by producing lighting fixtures suitable for places where usage conditions are difficult. Having a serious reference in Scandinavia and Europe, Noral has carried out city lighting projects in more than 15 different countries, especially Malmö, Stockholm (Sweden) and Tenerife (Spain), and continues its activities. Noral has trademark registration in 30 countries. In 2022, Noral was acquired by Noral GmbH and its management office is in Hamburg. It will continue its activities in the field of city lighting by producing led lighting fixtures and smart lighting poles in the premium segment where the usage conditions are difficult.

Noral is a well-known brand focused on design and quality in the field of decorative outdoor lighting. After being founded in Norway in 1948, the company has grown rapidly internationally. Since the day it was founded, it has made a strategic expansion by continuing its marketing and logistics activities. Working with world-renowned designers and award-winning design offices to reflect the Scandinavian design approach to its design processes, NORAL continues to develop its production activities for innovative, sustainable, highly efficient, and quality-oriented special lighting fixtures, as well as decorative lighting poles for the needs of cities.
