Plessey expands distribution network to Southern Africa via Tempe Technologies

Plessey Semiconductors of Plymouth, UK has entered into a sales representative agreement with Johannesburg-based Tempe Technologies Pty Ltd, a Southern African technical and sales representative company. The agreement will expand Plessey's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) network with coverage in the Southern African market for its GaN-on-silicon LED products.

Plessey's MaGIC (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C) high-brightness LED (HBLED) technology has won numerous awards for its innovation and ability to cut the cost of LED lighting by using standard silicon manufacturing techniques.

Tempe Technologies' CEO Willem Hijbeek says that an advantage for his customers is that, as an LED supplier with a European wafer manufacturing base, Plessey provides access to "a local competence center for all things related to the design and production of LEDs". 

"Plessey is very pleased to work with a distributor who has significant history in supplying the solid-state lighting market in Southern Africa," comments Plessey's marketing director David Owen. "Tempe Technologies has a comprehensive portfolio of peripheral products aimed at lighting applications, so the addition of Plessey LEDs will enhance its ability to provide a full solution to the customer base and accelerate the time to market for Plessey GaN-on-silicon LEDs in this region," he adds.
