Lumenova and Jenoptik enter into LED lighting collaboration

Lumenova GmbH and Jenoptik Polymer Systems GmbH have concluded a wide-ranging strategic alliance in the area of LED lighting. Lumenova is a PSI Group company based in Esslingen, Germany, and Jenoptik, is part of the Jenoptik Optical Systems division and is based in Triptis, Germany.

The aim of the collaboration is "to achieve a quick entry into the strong growth market of LED lighting" in public spaces and in their commercial use, as well as the development of new application areas such as tunnel lighting or lighting for production halls. The companies say that they are both "aiming to become joint leaders in these segments in terms of costs and technology".

Lumenova GmbH develops and supplies high-tech LED systems for use in general lighting as well as for special applications. The company also supplies so-called “Lightengines” to the specifications of manufacturers of street lighting, as well as to its affiliated company 2K Moxa Lighting.

Jenoptik is a manufacturer of optical, optomechanical and optoelectronic systems and components, and has accumulated extensive know-how in mass production.

The long-term cooperation agreement was concluded recently and covers the technical collaboration in the further development of LED lighting technology based on the “Lightengine” developed by Lumenova, the development of new reflector optics for a range of applications as well as on further enhancement of the optical quality.

The development of the innovative light engines for the purpose of providing lighting for highways, squares, pedestrian routes, cycle routes etc. is protected by patent applications. The LED light source, light distribution optics as well as the electronics are integrated within a system module.

The PSI Group is a young technology company that resulted from a management buy-out from the former Panasonic fluorescent tube plant in Esslingen am Neckar. With its Optical Systems division the Jenoptik Group is one of the few manufacturers in the world to produce precision optics and systems designed to meet the highest quality standards.
