The Selective Lighting Story

Selective Lighting was born in Port Elizabeth in 1978 by 3 members of the Muller family. Ernest and Linda and Ernest’s mom, Marje. Ernest was qualified and worked in the construction business for 10 years before he stumbled across a defunct lighting business for sale.

He bought it and renamed the business, and went about learning all he could about the decorative electrical lighting industry.

After a few years, he travelled to European lighting fairs to import his own lighting products.

The Fire Works started about 20 years ago as a section of the Selective Lighting Muller business. Ernest met an agent selling quality fireplaces on one of his overseas trips. The first order was placed, and the rest is history. The company branched out later and found a manufacturer in South Africa willing to make quality Braais for their customers.

Bradley and Warwick joined the family business after completing post-Matric studies in 2002. They flourished in the business, each contributing with their own strengths and qualifications. In 2015 Ernest and Linda passed on the baton and ownership to Warwick and Bradley. During his retirement, Ernest remains a mentor and services customers in the building industry.
