BC Tech Week Royal Proclamation

Innovative Manufacturing – Tech Skills Appreciation Week

Innovative Manufacturing – Tech Skills Appreciation Week 576 1024 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Proud to Contribute to BC’s Manufacturing Sector

This week we were absolutely honoured to host our local MLAs Stephanie Cadieux and Marvin Hunt, and receive the Technology Skills Appreciation Week proclamation for innovative manufacturing and product development. 

Innovative Manufacturing Award

Creative, Innovative Manufacturing

Whenever someone tours Karice’s 10,000 square foot facility, when asked to sum up their visit in one word, almost everyone says “custom!” Not only do we make the vast majority of the components that go into the products we build, but most of our equipment and machinery has been thoroughly customized by the Karice team to meet our in-house needs.

Everything we do is highly customized. What sets Karice apart is the personal touch. We are true artisan manufacturers. With the assistance of advanced engineering and cutting edge technology, each piece is handmade, from scratch, in South Surrey, BC. This level of customization and interaction with each lighting fixture in the development process is hard to find!

Global Reach, Local Roots

Karice is not only active in promoting our local BC economy, but we are also always looking for new and innovative ways to put Surrey and British Columbia on the map. We are honoured and humbled that our local MLAs recognize this, and that our local government is partnering with us to promote British Columbia’s innovative manufacturing.

Recently, Karice has gained considerable notoriety overseas. It started with Karice being nominated as one of six finalists for Europe’s most prestigious lighting award, in London, UK. Since then, orders have come in from as far away as Dubai, UAE.

No matter how global our reach, our roots will always be local. We are proud to share Canadian West Coast craftsmanship with the world, while employing local designers, machinists, electricians, and fabricators right here in Surrey, BC.
