Sunbright Lamp Distributors has been operating in New Zealand since 1992 and is the master distributor for Sunbright® Fluorescent Lamps and Sunbright ‘Green Range’ L.E.D. lamps. Our products are marketed exclusively through a franchise network, direct to the end user and are never available for resale through electricians, lighting shops or electrical wholesalers.

Franchise holders do not need to be electrically qualified or to have lighting experience. More important is the desire to own your own business and the drive to find opportunities and generate sales, from which you will receive a good income. You need good practical skills to manage installation work and a reasonable level of fitness and dexterity as ladder work will be necessary. You will also need a ‘Station Wagon’ type vehicle to carry stock and ladders and a selection of basic tools.

Franchises are available based roughly on ‘Provincial Areas’ in the North and South Islands. In Auckland, the city has been separated into four ‘Franchise Areas’. Product and sales training will be provided, as will on-going support. Management will also spend at least 2 Days in a Franchisee’s area to help establish the new business and will provide ‘Business Advice’ if required.

Exclusive Franchise Areas are available for $20,000+gst, which includes $5000 worth of ‘Start-up Stock’, vehicle sign-writing, invoice books and business cards.

Peter Blackwood – Sunbright Franchise Holder, Dunedin

My involvement with SUNBRIGHT spans almost 18 years. This business has, from Day 1, been successful and continues to be so, all these years later. I now have two Franchise areas covering Otago and Southland.

Originally we were just replacing fluorescent lamps, now we are still installing a lot fluorescents but we are also providing a ‘Lighting Solution Service’ to help our customers improve other aspects of their lighting.

Reasons for my success:

  • The exclusive access to the SUNBRIGHT Fluorescent and LED range of lamps.
  • The well proven method of selling.
  • The support from the Franchisor.
  • The unique way that we provide a service which our customers really appreciate!!
  • The fact that we are providing a good experience for our clients.
  • Problems with inadequate lighting are immediately rectified!!
  • New products being introduced on a regular basis keeps both our client and SUNBRIGHT
  • Franchisees/salespeople interested and excited.
A SUNBRIGHT Franchise would suit someone who has some sale skills but more importantly the ability and enthusiasm to own their own business. No lighting experience is necessary, as SUNBRIGHT can teach you about the wide variety of lamps and the best applications for each model and light colour. The Franchisor is also willing to help you setup and run your business.

A good level of fitness is required because installing lamps and ladder work can be demanding. I am happy to discuss my success with SUNBRIGHT and can be contacted on 027 274 2366.
