Lumileds opens new office and innovation center in Shanghai
LED maker Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has held an event to celebrate officially opening the doors of its new office and innovation center in Shanghai. The firm says that it is making a key investment in pursuing further growth in one of the biggest global markets in automotive, illumination and mobile applications.
The new office brings together Lumileds’ three business units – Automotive, Specialty and Illumination – in one building for continued collaboration, since companies developing lighting applications require a partner that can collaborate with them to extend the boundaries of lighting, says Lumileds.
