Ledman opens up European operation26 October 2012
Shenzhen, China-headquartered Ledman Optoelectonic has announced that it has established Ledman Europe, giving the company a dedicated European operation which it says will ensure that its expansion is set to continue.
According to Ledman, it has thoroughly prepared its product range for the European market, with key requirements such as EMC certification in place. However, Ledman said that it knew that it needed to have a European base, providing local support from local language speaking experts.
"To support our customers properly, it’s very important that we understand what is required in each location around the world,” said Ledman founder and chairman Martin Lee. “Europe has very specific requirements when it comes to product certification, technical specifications and the need for customisation, so to operate there successfully, we need experts with local knowledge.”
“Every product we produce now meets the highest technical standards of the European market and, with our base conveniently located in Southern Germany, we can offer planning assistance, maintenance, installation support and pre- and aftersales service in a customer’s own language and time zone,” he continued.
Heading up the European operation is Michiel Hettinga, who has assembled a team including Roberto Segato, Jens Schelde, Maarten Hettinga and Andrea Greguoldo.
“Michiel has been in the LED Industry for more than 15 years, working with both Lighthouse Technologies and DisplayLED,” continued Lee. “His team is equally well qualified and the location of the European office is ideal. This provides the perfect solution for our customers.”
“When you buy from Ledman Europe you will get the security of buying from one of the financially strongest companies in the LED world,” said Hettinga. “You will also get local support through our offices in Germany, Denmark, Italy and Spain, via a team of LED experts that is close to you, speaks your language and has unsurpassed experience and technical knowledge. We are dedicated to delivering the very best solutions to our customers and excited about making the Ledman name as well known in Europe as it is in China.”
Ledman has a production facility covering 120,000 square metres in Huizhou, China, and employs over 1,000 staff.
