About Us

Celebrating over 30 years as an Australian, family owned manufacturer in the the lighting industry.

History of Hawko.

Opening in 1983 on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, Hawko began as a low voltage lighting manufacturer, manufacturing everything from decorative string lighting to commercial lighting for cinemas and auditoriums. It wasn’t long before Hawko became one of the leading Australian lighting manufacturers and began expanding the product range.

Quickly the Hawko name and reputation for outstanding quality was recognised internationally, with major projects being completed in the USA, South Africa, the United Kingdom and throughout Europe, as well as at home in Australia.

With over 35 years of experience in the lighting industry, today Hawko is one of the most successful manufacturers to the Australian market for LED linear and custom lighting. With our 1,800 square meter factory, Hawko has the capacity for multiple large projects to be completed simultaneously, without comprising lead times.

Who are we today?

Today, Hawko specialises in commercial, architectural and industrial LED linear lighting and has grown to become a leading manufacturer of indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures in Australia.

This growth has been made possible by providing quality and consistency in our product manufacturing, offering custom solutions to suit client requirements, and staying on top of the latest lighting technology to offer the highest efficiency LED fixtures possible.

All Hawko products come with ultra-modern LED technology accompanied by Hawko’s dedication to servicing customers’ expectations throughout the ordering process. By partnering with international leading companies such as Philips, Hawko is able to stay ahead of the rest.
