About us

Aluminium Lighting Company (ALC) was incorporated in 1994. Having grown to a team of some 30 staff, we are an established supplier of the European rail and highways sectors.

Being the first company to introduce extruded aluminium columns to UK roads and rail we have always been at the coal face of the industry, placing major emphasis on innovation, technology and crucially, quality.

Situated high above Port Talbot, South Wales, on the juncture of the Afan and Llynfi Valleys, the former coal mining village of Croeserw is our base. From our 45,000 sq. ft factory we supply extruded aluminium lighting columns, traffic signal poles and cast brackets, among various other products, to our domestic and international clients.

Our facility is accredited by BSI against Quality Management System ISO 9001 and Environmental Management System ISO 14001.

We are a company built on honesty and integrity; standing by our clients before, during and after installation – we will never walk away from a problem. Whilst many companies talk of customer service, we certainly believe that ALC delivers it.

Rail Products

At ALC we consistently look to develop our rail portfolio, branching out from lighting to encompass CCTV, level crossing enforcement and signalling to name but a few examples.

With standard and bespoke offerings, alongside our industry leading Echalon® Raise & Lower solution, ALC is best placed to address your lighting projects and much more besides.

With 25 years in business we understand the challenges presented by working on the railways. With an in-house design team ALC does the legwork for you, ensuring that the products you order arrive on time, on budget and to specification – mitigating against delays and further possession charges.

Our Design Team are involved in both standard and bespoke projects from the outset. The team is at your disposal both before and after your products are in the ground, providing that extra piece of reassurance.
