Lighting factory founded by Egon Hillebrand in 1881 who was actually a plumber. The factory was located in Neheim, Germany on Mohnestrasse.
In the early days, the company was mainly engaged in making covers for German stone beer mugs, household utensils made of metal, kerosene lamps and storm and wagon lanterns.
Around 1900, his son Franz joined the company and the factory was converted so that repair work can also be carried out on electrical light fixtures.
In 1936 Franz's eldest son, also named Egon, joins the factory and focuses on developing office and desk lighting. The factory was closed in WWII and reopened in June 1945.
In 1954 Hillebrand puts the 'Leuchtspiegel' on the market. A mirror surrounded by lighting in an acrylic ring. There is collaboration with Ernest Igl (1920-2001), an industrial designer from Prague, and new materials are used, such as perforated metal, for example for hoods for fluorescent lighting. The manufacture focuses mainly on the development of lighting for restaurants, decorative lighting and object lighting. The factory was closed in 1995.
