Plymouth, ENGLAND -- Plessey Semiconductors has announced that it has entered into a sales representative agreement with ROM Electronik Ltd., an electronics distributor and provider of advanced complete solutions headquartered close to Istanbul, to expand its European network with coverage in the Turkish market for its GaN-on-Silicon packaged LEDs.

Resat Erunsal, director of ROM Elektronik, said, "Being the leading, demand creation minded, specialised distributor, ROM Elektronik is proud to have been selected to represent Plessey. Following the rapid growth of the LED industry in recent years, our customers are now more focused in reducing manufacturing costs when selecting an LED for their lighting projects.
