Chip-On-Board expansion is underway
Our acquisition of Tridonic's COB business for special lighting applications was the talk of the town in the industry. In the meantime, the series production has started and is fully on schedule, and we also expanded our stock of machinery and equipment.
In January of this year, we officially announced that LUMITECH would acquire Tridonic Jennersdorf's COB (Chip-On-Board) division for special lighting applications. This not only made it possible to continue operations at the Jennersdorf Technology Centre - a development and production facility of regional importance and one of the first COB LED manufacturing facilities worldwide - but also allows us to build on its 20-year tradition of research excellence. In addition, we are very happy that we were able to retain both the existing staff and customers.
Over the course of the last few months, we completed the takeover and successfully launched the series production at this new facility. In addition to COB devices with individual colour conversion, LUMITECH also offers an SMT assembly services for LEDs. We are thus also able to develop tailor-made solutions in this specialised field, hand in hand with our customers.
