Since 2000 we’ve been creating lighting in harmony with modern life for the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom industry. We pride ourselves on providing premium products matched with flawless execution and service.
Find out how we got to be the market leading experts we are today, going from strength to strength, year on year.
Where it all began
It all started with father-and-son, Ray and Michael Linsky, founding the company in 2000 and working out of the family garage.
Before we become Sensio, we launched under the name M.R. Lighting based in Drighlington, West Yorkshire with a 9,000 sq ft premises.
2007 - 2008
We adopted the name Sensio and secured larger premises in Featherstone, West Yorkshire, covering 9000 sq ft.
Our aim to create a global brand was recognised in 2010 when Sensio America began trading. With offices in Illinois and New York, the team at Sensio America are highly experienced and committed to growing the Sensio brand.
We received awards at Excel London and the Kitchen Retailer, Ireland, for our innovative lighting designs. This continued throughout the up and coming years.
2012 - 2013
The company expanded with the launch of Sensio Slovenia and at the same time head office was moved to a new 29,000 sq ft premises in Castleford, West Yorkshire.
The teams grew and the Product Design & Development department was created with a great product development internship programme.
To further cement our focus on offering the highest quality goods, we upped our product guarantee on all LED kitchen and bedroom lighting products from 2 years to 5 years, as standard.
Bolstering Our Team
The Hong Kong office opens to provide an integral link between our UK operations and our manufacturing partners. This enabled us to reinforce our supply chain efficiencies.
Implementation of new systems to improve customer service responses and streamline the order processing and warehouse operations, saw us recognised in the Top 10 companies in the Digital Enterprise Awards.
Exceptional Customer Support
The pandemic saw us, like many, having to reduce our team, but we stayed open throughout to help support our valued partners and customers trade through lockdowns.
In late September 2020 we launched our training van MiCK (Mobile Illumination Centre for KBB).
As our product offering grew with the launch of Illuminated Bathroom Mirrors, so did our team, so we expanded in to a second 29,000 sq ft premises in Castleford, West Yorkshire.
Innovative Smart Techology
Our innovative product team launched the first LED bathroom mirror, in the UK, to have and Amazon Alexa built in.
Throughout 2022 our training department visited over 1400 designers nationwide in our mobile training van, MiCK.
Market Leaders & Expansion in to Europe
In 2023 we became the market leading experts in the KBB industry with our products available in 75% of retailers across manufacturers, DIY and distribution.
Going green: We removed 90% of plastic packaging on Bathroom products and we installed solar panels on both our warehouse and office sites in Castleford.
Our commitment to growth and excellence led us to establish Sensio France in the city of Cholet which marks a monumental milestone in our global expansion.
