(UK) – The newly formed Harvard Power Systems to be part of Gallant Lighting Group.

Global group Gallant Lighting has recently formed Harvard Power Systems Limited, following the purchase of IP and related assets of the company Harvard Technology Limited.

The new business will re-establish the sales of Harvard’s LED drivers and light sources, operating from its sales and engineering base near Leeds, Yorkshire, while all production has been relocated to its specialist electronics manufacturing facilities in India.

Gallant Lighting also recently acquired Venture Lighting India, which will bring significant and comprehensive manufacturing expertise to the group.

The UK-based Harvard Power Systems business retains a group of key personnel from the previous Harvard Technology company, and will benefit from their extensive knowledge and skillset in the product engineering, material procurement and technical design and development of the Harvard LED product portfolio.

Mark Needham, Managing Director of Harvard Power Systems, said: “Harvard has a long history of first class products and excellent product development. We are very excited to be relaunching this great range of products and to build upon these with the latest state-of-the-art designs, such as our CLi15 and CLi40 high specification LED drivers.

“Working with both historically and newly introduced OEM and distribution customers in the UK and across mainland Europe, Harvard Power Systems will concentrate on its range of LED drivers and light sources, while partnering with providers of controls, connected lighting and IoT-enabled devices to incorporate into its drivers and product packages.
