Date Announced: 28 Mar 2012 San Antonio-based Green Star LED have recently signed a marketing and distribution agreement with Toshiba International Corporation. Under this agreement, Green Star LED, the young and innovative LED lighting firm that is better known for its large San Antonio LED streetlight project, will be producing under the Toshiba brand for this global company to sell through its network.Toshiba has been a leader in the Japanese lighting industry for over 125 years but its entry into the North American market has been much more recent. Its offering has so far been primarily focused on lamps and other indoor lighting and will now count on Green Star’s line of outdoor and indoor high power LED fixtures. Aside from adding new products, Toshiba also benefits from distributing US-made lights for the first time.“It is an honor for us to have been selected by Toshiba for this alliance” states Gabriel Senior, Green Star’s CFO. As part of their strict processes, Toshiba engineers scrutinized Green Star's products, designs, manufacturing, and suppliers and were completely satisfied. As Ken Honeycutt, Senior Vice President at Toshiba International Corporation and the Chief Venture Executive for Toshiba LED Lighting Systems Division phrases it: “Green Star is a company dedicated to delivering outstanding quality and innovative products while preserving our planet through the efficient use of resources”. With such an agreement Toshiba expands its product portfolio in the US by entering into the LED fixture market, gaining prestige and revenues from the sizeable contracts that Green Star is currently delivering, and begins counting on Green Star’s research and development organization in order to further expand into other lines with highly efficient LED products. At the same time, Green Star gains a partner that will drive sales volume and provide top manufacturing and quality guidance, while continuing to serve its international markets with its own brand. Green Star is a San Antonio, Texas-based company which designs, manufactures, and distributes highly advanced, eco-friendly, and cost saving light emitting diode (LED) lighting systems to municipalities and commercial businesses.
