Hess is a manufacturer of architectural outdoor luminaires and site amenities of distinction. Quality materials, unparalleled design, and innovation are hallmarks of the company's products. Established in North America in 1997, the company is located in Gaffney, South Carolina.
Many Hess design collections are the result of collaborations with architects, lighting consultants, and industrial designers, renowned for trend-setting styling or performance optical systems. Hess luminaires have established international standards with their innovative form "language", often copied but never duplicated. With an extensive range of exterior product families, the line provides design unity rarely available.
Sister company Hess GmbH Light + Form is headquartered in the Black Forest area of Germany, long recognized for its strong heritage of artisans and craftsmen. Those roots are evident in our extensive line of luminaires, poles, and site amenities, enabling architects and lighting designers to make a definitive design statement within the platform of a functional product.
Professional independent sales representatives are located in local markets to serve the design community with project design and application.
Hess is a proud member of EXPERIENCE Brands, a small global conglomerate of exclusive specialty luminaire manufacturers.
