Cree expands network of solution providers

LED maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that seven new firms have joined the global Cree Solution Provider network: Cooler Master Ltd; LEDIKO; LEDDynamics Inc; Light Engine Ltd; MetroSpec Technologies LLC; Naotek; and XLight Ltd.

The program, created in November 2007, now includes 21 LED solution providers offering a wide range of LED lighting services including design consulting; customized design; LED engines; turnkey solutions; sub-assembly; and complete assembly.

“The world is seeking high-quality LED lighting now,” says Cree’s senior VP of sales, Bob Pollock. “Creating lighting-class LED systems requires new resources and areas of expertise.”

The network offers XLamp LED customers a full range of LED lighting-system design assistance and solutions to help accelerate time-to-market and reduce product development costs. Network members work closely with Cree to help ensure alignment of technologies. Cree says that members are chosen on the basis of their history of collaborating successfully with customers.
