“Tapping into Nu Horizons’ global demand creation, world-class logistics, and expert technical and engineering knowledge gives us both access to a larger customer base and the ability to further penetrate our key target markets, e.g. in India ,” says Dr Alfred Felder, CEO of Hong Kong-based Osram Opto Semiconductors Asia Ltd. 

“Customers are using lighting technologies to produce more and more innovative and efficient solutions, and Osram is a market leader in LED, IR and laser diode solutions in the market,” says Wendell Boyd, Singapore-based president of Nu Horizons, Asia Pacific.

Osram Opto Semiconductors says it is focusing its product offerings on current growing markets such as general illumination for street lights, signage, automotive interior and exterior lighting, LCD display backlight illumination, projection and mobile communications, using LEDs as light sources.
