Alfred Felder – CEO
“As a leading supplier of component solutions we are shaping the future of light together with our customers. Our three pillars of LED/OLED light sources, electronic control gear and light management we are the right partner for electronic components and systems. We are facing up to the challenge presented by technological change and are looking for strategic partnerships with the aim of offering innovative solutions to our customers worldwide.
Our experts have in-depth know-how in all the different lighting applications. This enables us to work with our customers to choose the right lighting technologies and the best possible solutions.
In view of the change in technology from conventional to LED light it is essential to make efficient use of this know-how and to exploit the technological possibilities for lighting applications of the future. For us, the main focus here is on the light sources and the light management systems which are based more and more on sophisticated software. Tridonic sees itself as a partner for systems comprising electronic components and semiconductor light sources and for added-value services for the benefit of our customers.
This approach has already brought us success with our LED converters and LED modules which we have developed specifically for our core business in general illumination. The proportion of our sales due to LED products continues to show vigorous growth. We are currently involved in the successful launch of our new generation of LED converters. The three TALEXXconverter series, ECO, TOP and TEC, are impressing our customers as a clearly structured portfolio that meets all requirements. At the same time, we have pulled out of old magnetic ballast technology and are now concentrating our resources on new technologies.”
