Optogan Enters the Turkish Lighting Market

Optogan opens Sales hub in Koceali/Turkey for LED-Lamps and Luminaires through a partnership agreement with Ledison Patan Ltd.

More than 200 invited guests and members of the Turkish parliament attended the Grand Opening in Koceali, close to Izmit, where the new sales office is located. Ledison Patan Ltd has a broad experience in interior and exterior LED lighting for hotels, hospitals, shipyards as well as for bridges and street lighting.

The market for Solid State Lighting (SSL) luminaries in Turkey has a tremendous potential for the next years. “Especially for Turkey we estimate a hundreds of millions Euro market for SSL luminaries within the next two years. Turkey, as being the bridge between Europe and Asia is a key hub for Optogan. With its strong labour force, biggest GDP growth rate in Europe and a continuously growing population with currently over 73 Mio inhabitants we expect an especially strong growth in our retrofit lamps ”, stated Ove Sörensen, Senior Director Sales & Business Development at Optogan.

Besides the retrofit business Optogan and Ledison will focus on market segments like street lighting, canopy, shop-lighting and lighting for hotels and restaurants.

“I strongly believe that LED lighting will become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Therefore we plan to invest about 3.2 million Euros for the year 2012 to create and develop the distribution network”, said Ahmet Patan, General Manager of Patan and Ledison Ltd. “We are very pleased about the partnership with Optogan, since Optogan´s LED-technology is “made in Germany”.”
