The People Behind Purple
A passion for advanced design, high performance, high quality LED light systems
Purple Industries was founded by Perth local Mark McPherson with a passion for advanced design, high performance, high quality LED light systems for vehicle and marine applications.
“I started this business to bring the really awesome LED lights and lighting systems I’d encountered overseas to Australians, I knew were sick and tired of the ‘quality lottery’ on eBay. Along with much of the faceless Internet crap out there and often dodgy warranty issues – or having to pay through the nose for the quality and reliability of the big-name brands.”
Through his previous work and experience with electrical and high- end LED light systems, Mark knew where he could find the leading edge technologies. “ Over years I had developed the contacts and relationships with leaders in design and engineering, components and manufacturing – the facilities needed to build the ultimate hi-performance LED lights, fittings and systems. Lights and components that would stand up to the worst Australia could throw at them. And that was really the mantra Purple Industries was foundered on”.
Joining Mark in 2014, as Brand and Sales Manager, was Chris Roberts with over 30 years marine industry experience and a like passion for LED lights and associated system design and engineering. Combined with Mark’s 20 years of electrical and LED systems background, this gave Purple Industries a wealth of experience in supply and installation across marine, mining, agricultural, industrial and recreational vehicle applications. “Our passion is LED lights. And delivering the best lights and systems to the market, adapting to new ideas and thinking outside the square with applications in marine, mining, agriculture, industry and recreation – all while delivering on customer confidence in our quality, service and reliability”
