Optogan and Atlantik Elektronik sign distribution agreement

European LED chip and luminaire maker Optogan and Atlantic Elektronik GmbH of Planegg, Germany (part of Atlantik Networxx Group) have signed a distribution agreement for the pan-European market.

The aim of the new collaboration is to market energy-efficient lighting solutions and the latest ‘Made in Germany’ LED applications'. The focus is on the sale of white LEDs, chips, and components such as driver ICs, specifically chip-on-board (COB) solutions in the high-power range (5–500W), via modular component technology combined with sophisticated control systems.

The focus of the new partnership is on mutual assistance in supporting customers' new projects in the regions DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg), and Eastern Europe. Joint activities will also be extended to regions and countries such as Scandinavia and southern Europe.

Founded in Helsinki, Finland in 2004 by Russian entrepreneurs and scientists from Ioffe Institute in St Petersburg, Optogan is a vertically integrated develoer and manufacturer of HB-LEDs for applications including solid-state lighting. In addition to having an R&D facility in Helsinki, since founding Optogan GmbH in Germany in 2005 it has established epitaxy and chip R&D plus a pilot line in Dortmund and, last year, its Fab1 chip fabrication plant in Landshut. Also, after founding CJSC Optogan in Russia in 2009, in 2010 it acquired an industrial facility in St Petersburg, where it has established LED component and luminaire production lines.

Optogan says that, due to its depth of experience in new design, Atlantik Elektronik has the expertise to provide customers with quick access to the latest solutions in the field of LED components, bulbs and LED lights for high-performance applications.

“Optogan is the ideal partner to focus on customers demanding innovative LED solutions whilst at the same time requesting a short time-to-market with these products,” says Atlantik Elektronik’s CEO Ottmar Flach. Fast market access can be achieved through the intense long-term customer relationship and sales experience of Atlantik Elektronik, Optogan reckons.

“We have teamed up with Atlantik Elektronik because we not only recognize the technical competence of the LED technology but also from adjacent areas of Atlantik products that help our customers to implement the latest technologies in their products,” says Ove Sörensen, Optogan’s director of sales & business development. “This partnership will accelerate the design process of the customer, which of course, in return, leads to faster market presence,” he adds.
