Philips Lumileds and Future Electronics Extend Worldwide Exclusive Agreement


Philips Lumileds and Future Electronics have announced the extension of their exclusive worldwide distribution relationship. The new five-year agreement builds on the decade long relationship that has enabled the development of solid-state lighting solutions worldwide.


The order is GT’s largest single order to date, and represents a significant milestone for the company as a leader in the fast-growing LED industry. The order will be included in GT’s backlog for its current Q1 FY12, which ends on July 2, 2011.


“Our customer is a well established, diversified manufacturing company located in China who is new to the LED industry. We are pleased that they have selected our advanced sapphire growth technology for their new sapphire production facility,” said Tom Gutierrez, GT Solar’s president and CEO.


“The market acceptance of our sapphire growth technology has been remarkable and it speaks to the confidence our customers have shown in our ability to help them build successful businesses that leverage our crystalline growth expertise and our global equipment installation and support resources,” he continued.


According to Strategies Unlimited, an industry analyst firm that tracks the LED industry, revenue for high brightness LED applications will be approximately $19 billion by 2015, with general lighting applications accounting for about 25 % of this total. High brightness LEDs are primarily manufactured on sapphire wafers. This growth is driving the expansion of manufacturing capacity to meet the increased demand for high quality sapphire material.


“Our exclusive partnership with Philips Lumileds has provided our customers with access to the world’s leading portfolio of LEDs for illumination- LUXEON. Our investment in resources, training, design tools, and best-in-class supply chain capabilities has enabled us to become the service leader in the solid-state lighting industry,” said Jamie Singerman, Corporate Vice-President, Future Lighting Solutions.


“Future Lighting Solutions has proven over the last decade that with LUXEON LEDs, highly trained LED solution engineers, and the core services of a global solutions provider, they are well positioned to support and enable the growing number of companies that want to enter the solid-state lighting industry,” said Steve Barlow, Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Philips Lumileds.
