What we believe in for you

Life at Nordic Lights means being respected and included in a diverse community. We believe in possessing a curious and open mindset. This attitude fosters a culture where people are encouraged to boldly exchange ideas and work together on ground-breaking innovations, as well as on continuous improvement and change for the better. We empower our people and make sure you develop both personally and professionally.

Leading towards the lead

We want to create the best hub for innovation and high-tech lighting solutions for our industry. We really see no reason why this should not happen exactly here, in this region way up north. Seemingly distant from metropolises, but surprisingly close in heart and attitude.

We are growing and we are here to stay, both as a local manufacturer and as a global player. To succeed, we invest in both the development and well-being of our staff, as well as in technology. At Nordic Lights, automation and robotization go hand in hand with increased employment. We have automated our warehouse and invested in robot lines for work light assembly. Thanks to this, we are a strong competitor for business on hundreds of thousands of work and driving lights for heavy-duty machinery. For designing, testing, sourcing, and selling, and for the assembly of customized and more advanced products we need people, so we are always on the lookout for talented people to join our team. Find your career opportunity!

I am so proud of our skilled staff who work hard for the success we experience. We are a reliable and sustainable company, constantly creating high-end, quality products for the global market. So, if you want to live locally and act globally, go ahead and apply.

Forward through innovation

Nordic Lights is a success story from Finland’s friendly and entrepreneurially minded West Coast with the global market as its work field. Today, we are a modern and innovative high-tech powerhouse producing world-class lighting solutions for heavy-duty vehicles. We are the preferred LED light manufacturer for many of the world’s largest manufacturers of heavy-duty vehicles, including industry leaders such as Caterpillar, Liebherr, Sandvik, and Komatsu.

Starting with the production of our very first work light in 1988, we believed in the creative power of innovation. Our management saw the potential in the evolving HID and LED technologies early on, and they had the courage to pioneer in the field of work lights for heavy-duty machinery. That entrepreneurial mindset remains strong in the company to this day.

At Nordic Lights we take pride in our in-house R&D department with modern light and testing labs, and the latest in simulation software. This enables us to stay ahead of the game, be creative and develop products according to very high standards. We have the best product developers and engineers, who are constantly designing world-class lighting solutions. And we have the best production team vouching for the uniquely low failure rate of our production.

Nordic Lights employs about 300 people at its headquarters in Jakobstad, Finland, and in its units in Germany, USA, China, Brazil, and Vietnam.

Marco moved from Italy to work at Nordic Lights, and this is his message to you. “When I think about the magic I see living here, the snowy forests and the cold, frozen sea are what comes to my mind first. For a winter lover it is an authentic paradise.”

Boschi innevati, freddo, mare coperto di ghiaccio. Per un amante dell’Inverno, un autentico paradiso.
