The most critical customer technical interaction in the LED lighting business happens at systems and light engine levels and that is why we need to place our engineers in close proximity to our customers.
Espoo, Finland (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Lumichip Limited announces an expansion of its commercial operations in Finland and the opening of a new development centre in the city of Espoo, Finland. The new development and customer service centre is located in the heart of the Finnish high technology development cluster, at the Micronova Building, Otaniemi campus. The same campus hosts several global technology companies as well as leading research institutions such as VTT and Aalto University.
Lumichip’s new global commercial service centre will support all technical aspects and product sales for its existing and new customers. “Lumichip has an increasing client base in Europe and Scandinavia and to better serve our customers it was a logical move for us to establish a stronger presence here”, says Dr. Juha Rantala, Chairman of the Lumichip group.
The company’s substantial investments in Finland are not only limited to commercial activities, but an important part of its involvement there includes research from basic LED component to advanced light engine technology design and production of custom designed LED light systems. “Our chips and packages design and manufacturing will continue in Asia, but we wish to leverage the leading edge electronics and systems development expertise which is available in Finland into our new products and services”, Dr Rantala further comments that “The most critical customer technical interaction in the LED lighting business happens at systems and light engine levels and that is why we need to place our engineers in close proximity to our customers.”
Lumichip’s new European Micronova site is within the Finland National Research Infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology and its modern facilities include 2600 m2 of cleanrooms and processing lines for silicon CMOS, MEMS, III-V optoelectronics and various thin film devices. The available technologies and expertise of the centre will be part of Lumichip’s technology roadmap for the development of better LED devices and systems with intelligence, reliability and cost efficiency.
