Light Bulbs

Classic Range 

The Ecolife brand was established in 1997 with the objective of providing energy-efficient alternatives to the standard GLS lamps. With Eco standing for Economy and Life indicating the longevity of the product, Ecolife Lighting pioneered the introduction of long-life compact fluorescent lamps into New Zealand.

Since these beginnings the company has gone from strength to strength, and now offers much more than energy-efficient lamps. Ecolife Lighting imports and distributes a comprehensive range of interior and exterior lighting products that provide innovative and energy-efficient solutions for commercial, industrial and residential installations. The company specialises in fluorescent fittings, floodlights, bulkheads, ceiling and wall lights, spotlights, pendants, downlights and energy-saving lamps – and is continually expanding its range to meet the demands of its customers.


To keep up with the latest trends, the team at Ecolife regularly attends international lighting fairs and also visits the factories of lighting manufacturers to verify the quality of their products and to ensure they meet the company’s high standards. Where possible, to maintain quality, it ensures only branded components and fittings are used in the manufacture of the lights it imports.


Customer service is also an important aspect of Ecolife. As a customer centric company, it works closely with customers to build up an individual rapport, and provides a quick response to any queries. Ecolife has various in-house resoruces such as a lighting designer and engineers on its team who are able to support customers dealing with large commercial or residential fit-outs. Ecolife is a brand of lighting collection owned by Buildex NZ Limited, a company that has several years of experience in sourcing, importing and supplying building materials, hardware and electrical products to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. By drawing on Buildex’s depth of experience in the manufacture and supply of various products, Ecolife Lighting is able to source quality luminaires and supply these to its customers at competitive prices
