The acquisition of the high pressure UV tanning lamp and collagen lamp divisions of Radium optimizes our product range and serves as the basis for further technological innovation

LightTech, headquartered in Hungary and Light Sources in the US are the most prominent global players in the tanning industry. The current range of products offered by LightTech comprises a broad spectrum of suntanning lamps of leading edge low pressure UV technology and various special purpose lamps for germicidal disinfection in air and water as well as lamps for the medical, graphic arts, inspection, sign and other specialty markets.

With the takeover of the high pressure UV tanning lamp and collagen lamp divisions of well-known Radium Lampenwerk GmbH, LightTech is optimizing and complementing its tanning and collagen lamp business with high pressure technology. The production assets will be transferred to the state-of-the-art LightTech production site in Dunakeszi, Hungary. Production at Radium in Wipperfürth will continue during this transition period. Sales, customer services, research & development, and logistics will be completely managed by LightTech starting in May 2011. Product, service, and supply will continue to meet the very high quality standards of both companies.

With the acquisition and implementation of a new product line of high pressure lamps LightTech and Light Sources are considerably expanding their strong position on the international suntanning lamp market. One of the most important reasons for the acquisition was the high level of customer satisfaction of the products of Radium Lampenwerk GmbH, allowing for the smooth integration of the acquired technology into the high tech product families of LightTech and Light Sources.

“The acquisition of the high pressure UV tanning lamp and collagen lamp divisions of Radium Lampenwerk GmbH not only optimize our product range but also serves as the basis for further technological innovation, as is to be expected from the history of LightTech and Light Sources,” comments Christian Sauska, President & CEO. “We will continue to invest extensively in the technologies of all elements of our product range.”
