Founded in the 1980s; FILIX Lighting was originally an electrical engineering company.
After years of catering key stakeholders we became the first importer of LED technology to Croatia, working directly with Osram. With the development of LED technology and changes in the industry Filix harnessed their engineering knowledge and began the development of their first outdoor and underwater LED lighting solutions.
