Harvard open international offices


Harvard Engineering is celebrating another successful year of growth after opening international offices across Europe and USA. Harvard opened facilities in Italy, Germany and the USA during 2012 as part of a five year growth strategy to increase exports from 25% of turnover at the end of 2011 to 50% by the end of 2015. With the US accounting for 20 percent of the $75 billion global lighting market, the market provides Harvard with a significant opportunity. Harvard have also put in place distribution partnerships in the Czech Republic, the Middle East, Ireland, and Australia. The company already has an office in France, which covers both the French and Spanish markets, and is planning to appoint sales representation in the Benelux region in the first quarter of 2013. Russell Fletcher, sales and marketing director at Harvard, commented, “Following our continued success in the UK, we put together an expansion strategy to make our market leading products available worldwide. The new offices are just the first step in our progressive plan to make Harvard an internationally renowned brand.”


Panasonic grab the iF Gold Product Design Award for second year running


Panasonic has been acknowledged for its excellence in product design with an iF Gold Award, the highest accolade possible from the iF International Forum Design.


For the second consecutive year, a Panasonic LED bulb has received the prestigious award. The award for the Clear Glass LED Bulb 40W ‘LDAHV6L27CGE’ in the European market , also known as the ‘Modern Classic’ in Europe, follows last year’s recognition of the 20W model, which was introduced into parts of Europe in July 2011. The bulb’s packaging also picked up an iF Design Packaging Award.


The lamp delivers the same clear light as a 40 Watt (W) incandescent light bulb due to Panasonic’s unique light diffusion and heat radiation technologies. In addition, it boasts an energy saving of approximately 84 percent compared to a 40W incandescent light bulb and has a lifespan of approximately 40,000 hours, which is approximately 40 times longer than that of a traditional clear bulb.
