Xicato France Benelux Distribution Becomes Luxendi and Positions for Continued Growth

Xicato announced today that its original value added distributor, Xicato France Benelux Distribution, has changed its name to Luxendi. “The transition from conventional lighting business models to solid-state lighting has provided an enormous growth opportunity for us in the role of a value added distributor,” said Rob Verbeelen, MD of Luxendi. “We are Xicato’s supplier for Benelux and France and support customers throughout western Europe.”

The privately held and independent value added distributor supports clients throughout Europe from its base in Belgium. “Exceptional customer support is more than a cliché, it’s a fundamental business requirement,” said Gerhard Rieser, VP Worldwide Sales of Xicato. “The team at Luxendi can provide exceptional multilingual technical support to luminaire manufacturers and specifiers due to their broad experience in lighting.”
