Welcome to the Future of Light - A Letter from Pierre-Yves Lesaicherre

I am pleased to announce that as of April 1, Philips Lumileds and Philips Automotive Lighting division have officially joined forces to form a new company: Lumileds. Our combined strengths promise to keep us on the leading edge as we continue to shape the future of light.

Rest assured, although we have a new name, that will not alter our commitment to providing breakthrough lighting technology and the highest level of quality and service - keeping you one step ahead of the competition.

Our new company is uniquely positioned to raise the bar in LED light engines and automotive lighting. In both these arenas, you can expect us to deliver innovative, cost-effective products that meet your exacting application requirements and help bring your boldest designs to life.

I invite you to visit lumileds.com to discover how the new Lumileds can make your most challenging lighting designs a reality.
