REVO Company Background

REVO was probably founded around 1910, although it's origins are slightly unclear, it is thought that it probably started off as a company named 'Cable and Accessory' founded by Frederick Reeves who went on to forge a partnership with Septimus Vaughan founder of VONO beds hence the name REVO was given to emphasis the link. Although both were under the holding company Duport.

It was not until the 1930's that REVO became a household name, when electric street lighting was widely introduced and REVO lights, along with their competitors, were suspended around the UK, illuminating streets railways and factories. By the 1950's and 60's REVO was one of the main suppliers of street lighting around the UK. Many of their lights are still actually in use today, this was in the days before planned obsolescence!

REVO engineers were famed for their creativity, often developing styles of lighting individual to the towns they were designed for. This means that whilst there are a wealth of classic REVO styles, from prismatics  and enamels to machinist lights and bulkheads there are also some incredible individual rarities to be found.
