Office Canopy Group Solidifies UK LED Lighting Position
Office Canopy Group (OCG), one of the UK’s leading providers of business commodity items, has acquired UK LED supplier, Kudos Business Technologies, and has secured an exclusive distribution agreement for breakthrough LED lighting technology from NeoPac Optoelectronics Inc.
“OCG is focused on driving business savings driven by technology. We believe LED lighting represents a revolution in lighting solutions that is set to fast become the most efficient, cost effective and practical source of lighting,” commented OCG’s Chief Executive Doug McLean.
The Kudos acquisition was fueled by OCG’s success in the business product commodity sector and significantly strengthens their new specialist lighting division, OCG Lighting. “This is a natural fit for us and compliments our business model for delivering cost savings and efficiencies to our customers,” he said.
OCG Lighting works with businesses, facilities, companies, developers, and architects to retrofit outdated lighting systems, designing and implementing efficient LED lighting alternatives.
Building on the success of the acquisition, OCG Lighting recently established an exclusive deal to be the sole UK distributor for an innovative LED technology range produced by Taiwanese manufacturer NeoPac.
NeoPac’s NeoBulb line boasts a unique patented system that offers an elegant engineering solution to the key challenge of thermal management, achieving high-quality light output with improved efficiency. The technology’s unique heat pipe allows NeoBulb products to maintain a thermal junction temperature of less than 60 °C. The result is an extremely long lifespan; currently more than 60,000 hours and counting.
“This unique technological development, combined with increased business interest, makes for an ideal time to build on and develop NeoBulb products in the UK,” explained Simon Leggett, OCG Lighting’s managing director. “This partnership will allow us to continue to diversify and develop in a range of new and challenging markets.”
