Philips acquires Optimum Lighting
Portfolio expanded to include customised, energy-efficient solutions.
Royal Philips Electronics has acquired Optimum Lighting, a privately-owned company specialising in customised, energy-efficient lighting solutions for the office, industry and retail segments.
“Office lighting uses approximately 30% of the total energy consumption in buildings, so there is a great opportunity to upgrade the older inefficient lighting currently used in the majority of buildings to state-of-the-art, energy-efficient solutions,” said Rudy Provoost, CEO, Philips Lighting.
“The acquisition of Optimum Lighting further strengthens our overall ability to deliver tailor-made turnkey solutions to our customers that provide superior lighting performance, while reducing their operating expenses.”
Founded in 2005, Optimum Lighting manufactures a full range of lighting fixtures designed to meet growing demand for energy-efficient products. The company excels in the rapid design, building and engineering of customised, energy-efficient lighting solutions and the delivery of associated services for the professional market. Optimum Lighting is headquartered in Henderson, North Carolina, USA, with approximately 70 employees.
