Guzhen primary hub for lighting products

More than 6,000 suppliers offer environment-friendly luminaires, bulbs and tubes.

With roughly 60 percent output share of China’s lighting products, Guzhen town in Zhongshan city, Guangdong province remains the country’s main hub for the category. It was named China’s lighting capital in 2002 and three years after that became part of Guangdong’s demonstration area for the industry.

Last year, suppliers in the line rolled out $2.6 billion worth of lighting devices. This represents 74 percent of Guzhen’s aggregate yield for all its products for the same period.

Thirty years of developing the segment in Guzhen have resulted in the establishment of businesses that churn out commercial indoor and outdoor decorative luminaires, and energy-saving bulbs, tubes and fixtures.

Of the 6,200 registered companies, more than 3,600 are manufacturing designs in-house. Over 70,000 people are employed by 3,700 supporting industries that provide hardware, plastics, packaging and printing services.

Op, Honor, OKES and Shengqiu are among the local brands that originated in Guzhen.

Zhongshan, historically known as Xiangshan, is a prefecture-level city in the south of the Pearl River Delta region. The city was renamed in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, who went by the name Zungsaan and was from Cuiheng village of Nanlang Town, just outside of downtown Zhongshan.

Zhongshan is located along the west side of the mouth of the Pearl River Delta, directly opposite Shenzhen and Hong Kong. It is directly south of Guangzhou and Foshan’s north-south alluvial plains, and just north of Zhuhai and Macau’s hilly coastlines.

The area, Dongguan, Nanhai and Shunde are called the Four Little Tigers of Guangdong. The proximity of Zhongshan to Hong Kong and Macau is an advantage to its economic development, especially in the manufacturing industries.
