Licht + Design Chooses Bridgelux as Premier Lighting Supplier

European Lighting Designer Upgrades All Retail Food and Product LED Fixtures With Bridgelux VERO Arrays

LIVERMORE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2013) - Bridgelux, a leading developer and manufacturer of LED lighting technologies and solutions, announced today that Licht + Design, a developer and distributor of technical lighting based in Germany, has chosen Bridgelux® VERO™ LED arrays for its retail food and product light applications.

A lighting designer serving major retail stores focusing on clothing and food products, Licht + Design was challenged by shop owners to reduce operating and energy costs, enhance interior designs and atmospheres, as well as provide optimal color and light levels while delivering functionality previously unattainable with traditional, vacuumed-based lighting.

The VERO arrays provide Licht + Design customers with 20 percent more lumens per watt (Lm/W) than conventional LED arrays as well as a substantially higher color rendering index (CRI), a qualitative measure of a light source. The VERO product also provides up to 2x increase in current rating, which defines the amount of electrical current a light source can manage without deteriorating. Licht + Design expects customers to see more than a 50 percent reduction in energy costs with the VERO array integration. With its quick assembly design, the VERO array simplifies and streamlines luminaire product manufacturing while improving overall system reliability.

Additionally, as LED light generated by the VERO array does not generate heat or ultraviolet (UV) radiation, retailers can expect a dramatic decrease in food spoilage, further reducing operating and maintenance costs and extending the shelf life of perishable products.

Like other LED light sources, Bridgelux VERO LED arrays are also fully dimmable, easily connected to networks and emit light with no ignition time.

"We have been partnering with Bridgelux for their LED technology for some time and have always been impressed with the products they have delivered," said Frank Armbrecht, Licht + Design's CEO. "By moving to VERO arrays, we not only expect to see energy consumption drop even further, but we're well poised for the future of LED lighting as the arrays are fully optimized for smart connector integration."

"We're excited to be able to continue our impact on the LED market and Licht +Design has a significant impact in the European product and food retail sector," said Max Hong, executive vice president, Sales and Marketing for Bridgelux, "We continue to design and produce innovative products that deliver the finest quality of lighting available on the market, and are determined to supply nothing less for both our customers and their end-users."
