Future Lighting Solutions to Distribute LED Optics from Khatod Optoelectronic

Future Lighting Solutions and Khatod Optoelectronic today announced a worldwide distribution agreement that will bring Khatod’s broad portfolio of secondary optics for power LEDs to all major markets around the globe.

The line features the industry’s largest selection of optics for LUXEON Rebel LEDs, including 190 single, double, triple and quad optics as well as color-mixing optical systems with multiple beam angles and configurations to fit virtually any general lighting application.
Future Lighting Solutions is the first North American as well as the first worldwide distributor of LED optics from Italy-based Khatod. Under the agreement, Future Lighting Solutions will also assist Khatod in new optic development by providing insights into the needs of the general lighting market based on information gathered from working directly with luminaire manufacturers.
Khatod expects to add more than 50 new products to its current 690-SKU catalog this year, in part through Future’s guidance. Khatod is also capable of developing custom optics.
“Khatod has an exceptionally strong line of power LED optics for the mass general lighting market, an aggressive road map for developing new products in response to market and application needs, and the design and manufacturing capabilities to deliver dozens of new SKUs in volume,” said Jamie Singerman, Worldwide Vice-President of Future Lighting Solutions. “This will help us advance our agenda of making LED solutions simple for developers and designers.”
“This agreement will significantly increase the availability of our optics around the world as well as help us continually broaden our product line to offer the right solution for different lighting scenarios,” said Giuseppe Vasta, President of Khatod Optoelectronic. “By joining forces with Future Lighting Solutions, we will be better able to equip luminaire manufacturers with the tools they need to put more LED-based lighting products on store shelves.”
