Jurgen Chemelli

Province Lighting, Automation and Switching / Owner

Jurgen Chemelli is the CEO of Province Lighting which he founded in 1987.

Born and raised in Austria, he was transferred to South Africa by lighting company Zumtobel and ran their sales division in Cape Town before starting Province.

The company has since grown to have branches in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Windhoek, Namibia with more expansion planned in the near future. A demand for Building Management Systems and energy saving solutions saw the company opening their own Automation department and investing in an LED factory.

With a dynamic, professional and service driven approach to business, Jurgen has seen much success servicing many prestigious projects including airports, stadiums, hotels and retail developments not only in South Africa but also on the greater African continent.

His eagerness to keep up with the latest technology gives him the ability to offer clients the best solutions for their projects. He continues to pass his knowledge onto all that work with him.
