March 8, 2010
Date Announced: 08 Mar 2010 Tokyo -- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it will showcase its leading edge series of high-performance, energy efficient LED lighting solutions, as a first-time exhibitor at Light+Building 2010, the world’s leading trade fair for architecture and lighting technology. Light+Building will be held from 11 – 16 April 2010, and Toshiba will be exhibiting in Messe Frankfurt Hall 4.2, booth J10, where all visitors will be welcome to discover the latest LED innovations and solutions that Toshiba is bringing to the European market. Toshiba is taking its new lighting system business to the global level. The company’s LED lights, already a success in Japan, include light bulbs, down lights, base lights and street lights. Toshiba’s strengths in lighting technology rest on bringing high levels of energy efficiency to practical lighting applications, with no compromises in light quality or ambience. Toshiba understands that lighting is much more than a means to brighten rooms and that LED lighting can do much more than contribute to saving energy. Light has an emotional power that creates atmosphere and enriches life. Toshiba understands this quality as akari, a Japanese concept that conveys the ability of lighting to appeal deeply to our senses and emotions. Moving the LED lighting business forward, Toshiba will stop manufacturing general incandescent lamps this month. By concentrating on cutting-edge LED products, Toshiba’s new lighting system business aims to reach sales of 350 billion yen by FY2015.Toshiba New Lighting Systems will also exhibit at Milano Salone Internazionale Del Mobile from 14 – 19 April, in Milan, Italy, for the second time, where it will feature an installation under the theme of “Lucèste: TOSHIBA NEW LIGHTING”.
