LED future for Philips Lighting

19 November 2008

Philips Lighting in the UK is the leading innovator in LED lighting and will now completely transform its professional indoor luminaire business from conventional to LED light sources.

Philips has announced that it intends to re-focus its professional indoor luminaire activities to LED based solutions in the UK. Philips is extremely well positioned to compete in this new landscape of LED lighting and the business will streamline its UK organisation so that LED growth will be further accelerated.

This development is part of Philips’ ongoing drive to accelerate the move in the market to more sustainable lighting solutions. It has been the company’s view for some time that LEDs are the future of illumination. Philips has supported this view with unwavering focus on the research and development of new technologies, sales channels, acquisitions, partnerships and industry initiatives to achieve this vision. Philips is the leading player in the fast-growing LED lighting market, and has expertise and intellectual property in all parts of the value chain

Philips Lighting UK will still retain full focus on all outdoor luminaires, consumer luminaires and lighting controls. Philips’ existing lamps and control gear businesses are unaffected by this strategy.

Philips is convinced that this repositioning of its business towards LED solutions will allow it to meet the current and future needs of its customers, bringing them the full economic, environmental and design benefits of this new technology.
