Samsung appoint Young Electronics Group as distributor
24 February 2010
YEG Opto, the opto electronics division of Young Electronics Group, has announced their new partnership with Samsung to distribute their range of medium and high power LEDs in the UK and Ireland.
Building on their successful LED manufacturing business, Samsung offer a range of medium and high power LEDs for general lighting, street lighting and signage applications. Samsung are transferring their LED manufacturing expertise into the lighting business by using their established facilities (from chip making to the final package) and LED knowledge that has been developed from LEDs for TVs, mobile phones and laptop computers.
Divisional Manager for YEG Opto, Karen Dixon, commented: “We are very excited at this new Franchise opportunity. Samsung are already a global leader in LED manufacturing and the timing is just right for Samsung to bring their expertise to the lighting LED market. We see a massive potential in areas such as VMS, street lighting and florescent replacements in the next five years and the considerable investment Samsung is committing to product development and manufacturing, places them in an ideal position to become a global player servicing and influencing this market. The addition of Samsung LEDs to our range is a perfect compliment to our existing LED suppliers”.
