A history to be proud of

The founding of Ledstores

Ledstores was created in 2012 by the then 27-year-old Kemal Tas. He started selling LED strips to consumers through Marktplaats, from his home in Amsterdam. He then ended up converting the attic into a mini-warehouse of 10m2.

He filled all the shelves with various types of LED strips and accessories. There appeared to be a lot of demand for these type of products, so he soon started shipping several parcels daily throughout the Netherlands.

Each parcel was carefully packed, all questions from customers were answered with care, and he delivered the packages to the post office. It turned out to be a lot of work in addition to having a full-time job, so soon, the first employee was hired.

First online store in the Netherlands

De enorme vraag naar de producten legde een goede basis om de eerste eigen webwinkel te bouwen: ledstrip-specialist.nl. De site was er specifiek voor consumenten, met een assortiment van sfeerverlichting voor thuisgebruik.

Orders increased rapidly, filling the attic room, so it was no longer suitable as a warehouse. The rest of the house was also now used as a storage space, which led to the search for proper business premises.

Mission, Vision and Core Values

Ledstores wil marktleider in LED-verlichting zijn voor zowel zakelijke als particuliere klanten in West-Europa. Dat bereiken we met producten van de hoogste kwaliteit voor de laagste prijs. We investeren continu in onderzoek en ontwikkeling en houden de ontwikkelingen goed in de gaten, zodat we onze positie in de markt verder kunnen verbeteren.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Ledstores is a partner of MVO Nederland. We believe it is essential to deal responsibly with our planet, the people and our profits. planeet, de people als onze profits.


We supply sustainable, and energy-saving LED lighting to companies, institutions, organizations and consumers.

Energy neutral

It is our dream to provide sustainable energy LED-lighting for all companies in the Netherlands by 2030. In this way, we reduce the negative impact on the environment.


With waste separation bins for plastic, cardboard, organic, glass and residual waste, unrecyclable waste becomes history. Besides our recycling bins, we repair defective returns and donate them to second-hand sellers.

Environmental awareness

We, of course, use LED lighting across all our facilities and we do not support the regular use of disposable cups and cutlery in our company canteen. We want to lead by a good example and inspire other companies too.

Climate compensation

For every 100 orders we ship, we place a tree in Uganda and in the Netherlands. In 2019 we managed to plant 516 trees to compensate for our CO2 emissions. We hope to increase this number each year.

Energy consumption

Our high-quality LED lighting helps to save up to 70% energy, which prevents rapid depletion of non-renewable energy sources.


We regularly donate LED products to the food bank, as do other non-profit organizations and associations. We want to make a difference beyond good lighting.

Sharing LED Knowledge

At Ledstores, we feel the responsibility to share our expertise and knowledge about LED. We do this by providing free guest lectures and presentations at organizations and educational institutions.
