Producing solar lamps to light households without access to electricity
Lagazel produces and markets two types of solar lamps, which were originally developed by the enterprise itself. The lamps are characterised by a robust metal case and high-quality lighting. The holistic business model includes industrial production in proximity to customers, and after-sales, repair and product end-of-life recycling services.
To facilitate the manufacturing of solar lamps in other locations, Lagazel designed a production plant called “L-Box”, a complete turnkey solution that encompasses a production line, staff training and marketing instruments.
Lagazel, a private enterprise, develops, manufactures and markets a range of solar lamps and kits tailored towards the needs of developing countries.
CB Energie, a private enterprise, provided the first production facilities to start the production of solar lamps and still shares three sales locations with Lagazel.
Chabanne, a private enterprise, promotes Lagazel’s business development by means of technical, logistic and financial support.
