Lamina Ceramics announces distribution agreement with arrow electronics

WESTAMPTON, NJ, Lamina Ceramics announced today it has signed a distribution agreement with the Lighting Group of Arrow North American Components (NAC), a business unit of Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: ARW). This agreement allows Arrow to distribute Lamina’s high brightness LED arrays throughout North America. Lighting customers will benefit from the expertise from Arrow’s regional lighting specialists and Lamina’s award winning high-brightness LED light engine products.
“Lamina Ceramics is the leading provider of high brightness LED light engines,” said David McConaghy, Lamina’s vice president of sales. “The new Atlas and Titan products have set the standard for total brightness, efficiency and cost. Lamina’s LED light engines meet the needs of lighting designers by giving them the high brightness they need and the consistent white color that they have come to expect from traditional lighting sources, and are the easiest to integrate into lighting fixtures. The Titan, for example, does not require any soldering; just plug and play. The addition of Arrow Electronics to our sales channel will allow us to increase our support level to customers and take advantage of the wide variety of supporting products that Arrow offers.”
