CORK-headquartered VERDE LED, an Irish manufacturer of commercial energy-saving LED lighting solutions, has announced a contract to expand into the Scandinavian market in a partnership with Malux.
VERDE LED will provide Malux with a range of industrial lighting options, over the next three years, and the distribution contract is expected to be worth €6m.
In the summer of 2016, VERDE LED completed several industrial facilities and ice hockey stadia in Finland, with Malux.
After discussions in Frankfurt, at the world’s largest lighting fair, Light & Build, in 2016, Malux partnered with VERDE LED, following a full facility-and-operations audit based on the company’s technical expertise, high quality products, and suite of support services.
One of the largest commercial LED lighting manufacturers and suppliers in Europe, VERDE LED offers a wide range of lighting solutions, using premium, LED chip technology primarily for commercial purposes.
With 40 years’ experience in the Scandinavian market, Malux provides specialist lighting, such as emergency lighting systems, and vandal-safe and underwater lighting, as well as explosion-proof equipment for industrial purposes, and communication products (such as antennas for mobile phones and headsets for communication radio). Malux works with customers from pharmaceuticals to process industries, to the building industry and the public sector.
Speaking about the partnership with Malux and expansion to Scandinavia, John Keohane, CEO of VERDE LED, said: “At VERDE LED, we are continually looking to develop strategic alliances with good international distributors, and have been looking to expand in the Scandinavian market with the right partner.
“In Malux, we now have a partner that we can trust with distribution of our products, and one which has the infrastructure in place to facilitate growth, in line with our company’s ambitious growth plans, and we look forward to exciting times working together.”
Commenting on the distribution contract, Jens Kononen, from Malux, said: “The foundation of our business is offering a wide product range from globally well-known, reputable suppliers, our professional and service-minded personnel, and our ability to offer solutions that will improve and maintain our customers’ competitiveness.
