Preempting the lighting industry’s shift away from traditional bulbs towards LED lighting solutions, LEDVANCE, a fully owned subsidiary of OSRAM, launched a project in June 2015 to convert a halogen production line to LEDs at its Eichstätt factory in Germany.
Building on decades of experience in bulb manufacturing, the 50 or so strong global team needed only 12 months to develop a competitive, profitable LED production line that is poised for success on the global stage. The successful execution of this project leaves the Eichstätt plant, which belongs to LEDVANCE since July 1 this year, in an even stronger position for the future.
To realize the new production facility, LEDVANCE invested in the Eichstätt plant and the global project team, which brought together colleagues from Augsburg, Eichstätt, Garching, Regensburg (all Germany) and Shenzhen (China). “We are very proud to have brought these production capabilities to Germany. Building on their specialist expertise, our team has developed a state-of-the-art, automated LED bulb production line that shakes up global competition in this area,” says project manager Steffen Strauss. Customers will benefit not only from the “Made in Germany” seal of quality, but also from rapid deliveries.
