As a leading supplier of lighting products in Bulgaria, we offer 1,000 domestic and industrial lighting products under our brand VIVALUX.

We have set up 18 online meetings with lighting manufacturers all from Mainland China. As lighting products are complex, it takes 2 to 3 months for us to check prices, samples and EU regulations before we can place orders with new suppliers. We expect the total amount of our orders can be between US$10,000 and US$100.000.
