who we create value for

SHAREHOLDERS

Our goal is to deliver long-term value for shareholders. We do this by developing products that are sustainable and stimulating demand in a market with very low penetration. We use our capital allocation discipline to balance between investment, balance sheet management and  shareholder returns.

EMPLOYEES

We offer opportunities for personal development and competitive rewards linked to performance. We believe in
a creative working environment with scope for individual responsibility and personal achievement.

CUSTOMERS

We add value to our customers’ businesses. Our staff work closely with our customers   in order to understand their requirements and help them achieve their objectives.

COMMUNITIES

Our operations create jobs for local communities in 15 countries around the world. By supporting local supplier development, where possible, we drive sustainable value for shareholders
and further economic benefits for local communities

GOVERNMENTS

We support local economies by creating employment and paying local taxes. We stimulate local economic prosperity which contributes to the maintenance of public infrastructure and services.

Competitive strengths

The Group addresses the needs of customers in heavy industrial locations where lighting is seen as mission critical. Dialight focuses on niche markets where its products are designed to meet the certifications and specific requirements of our customers. These are markets with significant barriers to entry as their environments demand continuous, reliable and efficient lighting solutions. Dialight is engaging in a focused plan of geographical growth in established and developing markets to ensure its long-term business sustainability.

How our business model and strategy work together

Our business model is based on value creation and value capture. Our strategy creates our unique and valuable position with our target markets.
