The corporate partnership represents collaboration around projects business, and will see the companies work together to promote energy efficient lighting control solutions to customers.

Schneider Electric operates in more than 100 countries and, through its diverse product and business portfolio, specialises in the design and implementation of lighting control systems. Tridonic, headquartered in Austria and part of the globally acting Zumtobel Group, enables customers around the world to develop innovative applications and solutions, through lighting components, lighting management systems, connection technology and LED solutions. Within the partnership there is a project with LEDON, a sister company of Tridonic, which develops and markets hi-tech LED retrofit lamps for private consumers.

The strategic partnership between the businesses will combine the product innovation and market pedigree from the companies to develop cutting-edge, energy efficient lighting control solutions for customers globally. The solutions will meet the needs of diverse market sectors, including airports, hospitals, infrastructure and high performance green buildings. Schneider Electric benefits from Tridonic's deep know-how in electronic control gears as well as from the innovative Tridonic products. Tridonic benefits from Schneider Electric's excellent customer relations in the project business where Tridonic takes the role as first choice partner for lighting management. In all cases customers will stand to benefit by receiving lighting systems with synchronised components from one hand and enjoying service and safe systems.
