Dialight Lumidrives expands to new premises in York

A new purpose-built facility in Northern England positions Dialight Lumidrives for further growth.

Dialight Lumidrives, a UK-based LED technology provider which is part of Dialight plc, has expanded into new 30,000 sq foot premises in York, UK. The new premises will enable Dialight Lumidrives to continue its growth and meet the needs of its large OEM customers who are recognizing the benefits of LED technology.

The premises provide purpose-designed facilities for Dialight Lumidrives’ research and development laboratory together with expanded production and storage capabilities. It also includes an LED applications centre to demonstrate the full potential of LED technology in a range of uses.

The company says that its move from its previous base in nearby Knaresborough lays the foundation for continued growth and will help it continue to expand its technically skilled workforce.

Alison Ambler, operations director says: "I am delighted by our continued growth and the new premises will enable us to devote additional resource to R&D which is the lifeblood of our ongoing success."

Founded in 2001, Dialight Lumidrives was one of the first companies to realize the potential of high powered LED technology in illumination applications. It specializes in the development of components to enable applications in solid state lighting, including power drivers, LED arrays and optics. The company also offers design services for LED based illumination systems.

Lumidrives was acquired by Dialight plc in January 2006 (see Dialight acquires Lumidrives for £3 million).
