About Holders Technology UK
Holders Technology was founded in 1972 by Rudi Weinreich, as a company selling high speed motors and control equipment to the UK Printed Circuit Board (“PCB”) industry. Over the next 50 years the company extended its business internationally, with subsidiaries in Europe, India and China fabricating and distributing specialist PCB products.
In 2010, the company diversified into the Lighting industry, through the purchase of a UK distributor specialising in LEDs and related components. Holders Technology started selling Casambi wireless lighting controls in 2016 and has now become a key strategic partner of Casambi.
Lighting control divisions were set up in Germany (2010), and Austria (also serving Switzerland, Czech Republic and Slovakia), and France (2020). Holders Technology Data Analytics, which provides dashboard visualisations of both lighting and non-lighting applications, was started in 2020.
In 2021, a Joint Venture was set up to support New Zealand and Australian markets.
Holders Technology benefits from global supplier partnerships across the Casambi ecosystem, a full range of project services and data analytics capability, and an exceptional technical and support team. Holders Technology is committed to the vision of a wireless future.
Holders Technology maintains the values of a family business: long-term relationships with all stakeholders, honesty, and integrity. These values are shared in New Zealand and support our collaborative working partnership.

WORK LIFE BALANCE
Achieving the right work life balance is a challenge for many. At Holders we put a large emphasis on ensuring our staff achieve the right balance.
Spending so much time at work, highlights the importance of working within a team, where the culture is supportive, collaborative and fun.
Starting my career 25 years ago within the lighting industry in New Zealand and England, then venturing into the electrical distribution sector over the past 12 years. My strengthens include sales management, international strategic procurement, category management and of course supporting the growth within people.
My ongoing inspiration is building capability, challenging the status quo and delivering solutions based on business integrity.
Having specialised in project delivery and business operations excellence within the electrical distribution sector for the previous 16 years. I have been involved in many projects over and have really enjoyed being involved in the Christchurch rebuild.
With a high level of technical capability and a systematic approach to the organisational requirements; I lead the daily operations.
Active within the lighting controls industry for the past 8 years, specialising mainly with Dynalite, Helvar and Casambi systems.
As a certified project manager, I bring a certain amount of order to the methodology used in designing and implementing systems to ensure a fruitful outcome.
As a registered electrician, my qualifications provide me in-depth knowledge of both traditional and future wireless installations.
Taking the lead over the past 12 months with on-site commissioning and technical product development, supporting our installer partners through training and project-specific challenges.
With a degree in information technology and experience in the telecommunications industry, including being hands-on for fibre optics installations within the domestic sector.
Being a technician on the field provided me the opportunity to quickly move into project management position where I found myself with 40+ staff and plenty of new processes to build.
I bring a “can-do” attitude from my experiences to break down a problem and build it into a working process, I’m excited about the change into the lighting control space!
