(Netherlands) – New Netherlands office to serve as focal point for European research and design, sales, and administration for new lighting products.
Fulham, a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has established a new European headquarters and design centre in Alkmaar in the Netherlands. Opening of the new regional headquarters follows Fulham Group’s recent asset acquisition of Lumotech’s LED driver business, which itself is based in Alkmaar. The transaction to acquire Lumotech assets was completed on 30 June 2016.
“A European presence including a design centre for developing LED drivers for the market and the people to better serve our growing European distributor and OEM customer base reflects our strategy for Europe,” said Mark Needham, Fulham’s European Vice President for Sales. “Europe is a key market for LED luminaire design and having a team of engineers in the Netherlands allows us to more quickly respond to market trends.”
Needham added: “This is an exciting time for us to fully market our now much expanded range of top quality LED drivers and promote the Fulham lighting brand across Europe.”
In addition to the R&D team, Fulham’s new European headquarters also houses sales administration and customer service. With its global headquarters in Southern California, Fulham is a leading manufacturer and supplier of intelligent and sustainable lighting components for OEM lighting fixtures manufacturers and also for the electrical distribution market. The company is also a key supplier of electronic ballasts for fluorescent and HID systems. Fulham’s lighting components power many lighting manufacturers’ luminaires including commercial and industrial, emergency, signage, refrigeration and street lighting.
