Established in 1994 in Bernareggio (in the province of Monza and Brianza, Italy), Ares comes from the natural evolution of an existing manufacturing company of outdoor luminaire present on the international market since 1980. Ares has been committed from the outset to reflecting the constant evolution of the outdoor lighting sector, offering innovative, high quality and sophisticated lighting products, manufactured with noble materials including aluminium, stainless steel and glass. Each creation is a challenge: understanding, analyzing and projecting to reach harmony and fusion of structure, light, architecture and setting. Ares soon recognized the potential of LED light sources, with a view to offering fixtures featuring high efficiency, reduced energy consumption and with a constant focus on environmental protection.
Today the Ares production facility covers an area of over 12,000 sqm, including the research and development department, testing laboratories and a painting and coating system based on advanced technology. In 2010, the Aresled division was created, comprising an automatic assembly line for circuit boards and a production department for wiring and assembly. The constant desire to grow has made Ares a benchmark company in the sector, exporting its products worldwide and addressing a broad target of consumers who are increasingly aware of the numerous benefits linked to comfortable, safe and efficient lighting.
In 2015 Ares enters the Flos group. Flos and Ares fully share not only advanced research and innovation processes, but also the concept of integration between lighting units, architecture and spaces, and the idea of experiencing light as an emotion.
