Table lamps from Mödling for international gastronomy

6. September 2007

The Lower Austrian, family-owned company Candol provides table lamps, which give candlelight for a romantic atmosphere, to thousands of restaurants in over 60 countries world-wide.

The family-owned company  Candol Produktions- u. HandelsgesmbH was founded in Mödling (Lower Austria) in 1988. Today 35 employees produce around 1.2 million oil lamps each year under the Candola brand, as well as textiles for the gastronomy sector. 75% of production is exported to thousands of restaurants and hotels in over 70 countries. Candol generated a turnover last year of 4.5 million euros. Almost all the big names in the international hotel world are on the Candol client list: Mariott, Hilton, Intercontinental, the Viennese Sacher Hotel, portuguese casinos and restaurants on luxury cruise liners. Candol's recipe for success is based on a simple principle: instead of manufactured candles, the Candol lamp uses a special base which is filled with oil. The wick absorbs the odourless liquid from the base and provides candlelight without smoke and grime for up to 120 hours. The so-called "miracle lamps" form the basis of the product range and are available in many different designs.
