Springe (DE) / Eindhoven (NL), May 30th, 2014
The Nordeon Group presents itself for the first time to the American market. The LIGHTFAIR is one of the most renowned and largest fairs for architectural and industrial lighting worldwide and takes place once a year in the USA. Between 3 - 5 June 2014, more than 500 exhibitors will present their products and technologies in Las Vegas. The LIGHTFAIR Conference starts on 1 June. Here about 140 speakers will inform the visitors about a wide range of subjects. In addition to the introduction and presentation of the Nordeon Group, the sounding out of the market potential is paramount.
With Hess, an internationally leading manufacturer of decorative outdoor luminaires and site furnishings, the Nordeon Group already has a brand renowned in the American market in its portfolio. Hess itself is represented with its own stand by its subsidiary HessAmerica. HessAmerica successfully started sales and production on the American market as early as 1997 and can build on a high reputation within its total market. Accordingly, special attention will be given to the presentation of the Vulkan and Nordeon brands.
For more than a century, Vulkan has stood for technically high-quality and elegant products "Made in Germany" and is thereby the oldest brand in the lighting industry. Vulkan is especially well-known in the German-speaking countries. For cities, communities and energy suppliers, Vulkan offers technologically highly advanced, elegant products for a code-compliant illumination of streets, central traffic intersections, dangerous areas, pedestrian zones and public facilities. At the LIGHTFAIR, the new Vulkan LED Luminaire V3630 will be presented. This luminaire successfully celebrated its premiere at the Light + Building in Frankfurt.
The third brand in the Group is Nordeon, specialized on interior lighting for industry, retail and office. With the location in Springe, Nordeon has one of the largest development and production sites for LED luminaires in Europe at its command. Within the framework of the LIGHTFAIR, Nordeon presents the newest BALDUR light band system. As the inventor of the light band system, the accumulated experience and the complete know-how, from 40 years of light band tradition, were incorporated in the development and production of BALDUR. In Springe, top-quality light band systems have been developed and produced since 1974. It all started under the brand AEG with Gealux, the prototype of all light band systems, and was continued with the today best-selling system Maxos developed under Philips' ownership. BALDUR is the third generation in this tradition and should set standards for LED light band systems. This new light band system is suitable for lighting supermarkets, warehouses and industrial halls.
Furthermore, with THOR, Nordeon presents a further completely new LED-luminaire. THOR was specially designed for use in industrial halls and warehouses with high ceilings. Requirements such as dependable and permanent protection from water, dust, vibrations and mechanical influences or high ambient temperatures do not present a problem. THOR more than meets these requirements, without having to compromise light quality, energy efficiency and lifetime. Due to the clear product design, THOR is also attractive for public spaces such as markets, multi-purpose halls or at train stations and airports.
Pierre van Lamsweerde, CEO of the Nordeon Group, is deeply convinced regarding the successful launch of the Nordeon Group in the USA: "We are more than optimistic that with Nordeon and Vulkan, we can gain and maintain a foothold in the American market." And with Hess, we have a company in our portfolio that already has a certain appeal in this market. We want to further increase this appeal and wherever it is possible, to use the resulting synergy for the Group."
