Highlite International is based in Kerkrade (South Limburg) and was founded in the 1990s by Huub and Conny de la Haije. What started as a first container of show equipment has since grown into a company that supplies its products to over 70 countries and employs a workforce of over 150. Highlite has every reason to take pride in being one of Europe's leading suppliers of show equipment and a worldwide distributor of products in the field of light and sound equipment.
Highlite’s range of products can be divided into five main brands: Showtec (lighting equipment), Infinity (high-end lighting equipment), DAP Audio (audio, control and sound-mixing equipment), DMT (video technology) and Artecta (architectonic lighting products).
The Showtec range of products is continually refined and adapted by our engineers, always in response to current innovations and the latest developments in the field of lighting technology.
Infinity provides the market with high class intelligent light products. Clever features and sturdy built fixtures are the main characteristics.
The DAP Audio segment recently saw the introduction of the new CORE series. This series, which was developed specially by and for DJs, comprises a collection of mixing consoles, CD players, media players and midi controllers.
DMT features the newest pixel screens that incorporate the latest technology for improved performance at more affordable price levels.
Artecta, the art of lighting, is one of Highlite’s success stories. The demand for high-quality, innovative and artfully designed lighting options is continually increasing. With Artecta, Highlite has embraced the cross-over principle and has joined forces with such companies as Bridgelux (VS), Cree (VS) and EldoLED (NL) to bring even better and more attractive LED lighting options to the architectonic market.
Highlite has over twenty years of experience in supplying the professional market with show equipment. Thanks to this and its professional attitude, Highlite always ensures that its customers have latest technology at their disposal. All products that bear the Highlite stamp must satisfy stringent quality controls. The price-quality ratio of Highlite products is always better than outstanding. Highlite counts itself among the leading show partners, catering to large-scale concerts and shows to small-scale events held at private homes.
The headquarters of Highlite International are located on the Dentgenbach industrial estate. In addition to the company’s offices, the premises also feature a 15,000m2 warehouse. The storage and transhipment of goods was fully automated in 2010, when the warehouse was built. It is here that the goods are sorted, stored, automatically set aside and packed for shipment. With the investment in this fully automated high-rise warehouse the concept of service and fast delivery acquired a completely new dimension.
Commitment & motivation
Highlite employees derive their commitment and motivation from searching for - and, even more important, finding - products that can be offered at the lowest possible prices while still being of the highest possible quality. The challenge to offer our customers the best possible products and services within the Highlite market segment takes the company to new heights.
Highlite’s European market share has been growing over the past few years. The company is present in many European countries through its representatives, a personal approach that has yielded excellent results. Highlite is therefore very grateful to its customers for their confidence in its products and services. There is also a clearly notable increase in Highlite’s market share in the countries bordering on the European Union, with more and more orders coming from the relatively new markets around the Mediterranean Sea. Highlite has also been approaching the larger global markets, such as Australia, Asia and North and South America.
The importance of continuing to offer a high level of service is self-evident. As for the future, Highlite remains dedicated to raising the level of service it offers its current and prospective customers to a continually higher level. The completion of a new service centre in the near future is one of the first steps in this direction. Speed and a high standard of quality with regard to the provision of services and customer contacts are of paramount importance to Highlite.
