Rutronik Enters into an Exclusive Pan-European Franchise Agreement for Intematix's LED Modules and Components

Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH has entered into a pan-European franchise agreement with the USA-based LED specialist Intematix Corporation as their exclusive distribution partner in Europe. Effective immediately, Rutronik will distribute Intematix's entire product portfolio of individual components, arrays, LED modules, control systems, secondary optics and heat sinks.
       
With this agreement, Rutronik extends its portfolio of optoelectronics to include the innovative and high-quality components from Intematix to serve the needs of Europe's advanced lighting developers. Intematix specialises in ceramic-based LEDs and modules for the lighting market and is a leading manufacturer of phosphors for LEDs. Control systems, secondary optics and heat sinks complete the innovative portfolio. Intematix products are characterised by excellent heat conducting properties as well as very high quality and luminous efficiency. Colour-specific solutions with products based on InGaN (indium gallium nitride) technology and Intematix's patent-backed phosphors are also available, and may include customisation options. Rutronik will be the exclusive European distributor to sell Intematix components.
        
The Intematix product portfolio has been designed specifically for general lighting applications, complementing Rutronik's wide range of optoelectronic components. With Intematix LED solutions, Rutronik targets areas such as LED-based solid state lighting, interior and exterior lighting, architectural lighting, window lighting, spotlights, airfield lighting, marine lighting as well as design and advertising lighting applications. Additionally, Rutronik will continue to pursue its in-house development and marketing of LED street lighting in co-operation with Intematix. As a pioneer in this area, Rutronik has already installed a successful LED street lighting system in Remchingen (Baden-Wuerttemberg).
   
"With Intematix we gained another partner with innovative and high-quality products. As the LED market continues to actively develop, this is a decisive competitive advantage for our customers", says Marcus Oechsle, Senior Marketing Manager Optoelectronics Division at Rutronik. "Together with Intematix, we will also target a range of new markets in the lighting sector, such as public and private buildings and facilities. Due to changes in the law and also as a result of support programs, this unique "green lighting" technology can no longer be ignored. We are entirely convinced of the advantages and quality of Intematix components, and it is our goal to establish their brand in many sectors."
  
"For the development of the European market, Rutronik is the first choice as our distribution partner. Rutronik is represented in many countries and is familiar with the local markets – a valuable advantage on the extremely country-specific orientated European market", adds Jeff Lagaly, Vice President at Intematix. "Additionally, Rutronik offers exceptional expertise in the LED field, which they have demonstrated with innovative solutions of their own."
   
At a very early stage, Rutronik, one of the most successful distributors of optoelectronic components in Europe, also began to target innovative lighting markets with LED technology. With a wide range of complete solutions, Rutronik offers entry-level LED customers comprehensive support in technology, as well as for components and applications. In the European-wide "Lighting Solutions" series of seminars, Rutronik is providing attendees with the critical knowledge needed to successfully implement LED and infra-red applications.
