In order to support sustained growth, Global Lighting Technologies, a leader in LED based edge-lit lightguide technology, has completed construction on a fifth manufacturing facility. Located within a newly built Science Park in Tongluo, Taiwan, it will open for production in September 2016.

The new facility was developed as a Green Building and includes new fully automatic equipment to allow GLT to go from pellet to pallet without operator involvement. These are the most efficient extrusion lines ever employed by GLT for production and are capable of producing lightguides up to 80" diagonal. The additional capacity will help GLT to reach 15~20% market share for lightguides used within edge-lit LCD TVs worldwide.

Facility highlights include:

  • Initial factory capabilities: 5 production extrusion lines (Facility can support 5 additional lines)
  • Building: 553,365 sq./ft.
  • Production floor: 405,024 sq./ft.

About Global Lighting Technologies:
Global Lighting Technologies (GLT), Inc. was founded in 2000 to develop LED-based edge lighting technology for the latest generation of flat panel displays. Today, GLT is developing new lighting concepts for solid state lighting in general illumination applications utilizing its LED-based light guide technology. GLT's edge lighting technology focuses the light of LEDs placed along one or more edges of a thin light guide in order to deliver the light precisely where needed, providing bright, uniform light in a thinner form factor with more efficient light extraction and fewer LEDs. With five manufacturing facilities in the Far East, GLT is poised to deliver a better light guide at lower cost with faster turnaround.
