||Based in the epicenter of China’s optoelectronic industry, Ledman Optoelectonic Co., Ltd has grown over recent years to become one of the world's largest manufacturers of LED components, displays and lighting products. With contracts officially signed at PLASA 2012, the company has acquired Ledman Europe GmbH, a dedicated European operation, in order to ensure that its expansion is set to continue.
Having thoroughly prepared its product range for the European market, with all important aspects such EMC certification in place,
the company knew it needed to have a European base, providing local support from local language speaking experts. "To support our customers properly, it’s very important that we understand what is required in each location around the world,” says Ledman founder and chairman Martin Lee. “Europe has very specific requirements when it comes to product certification, technical specifications and the need for customization, so to operate there successfully, we need experts with local knowledge. Every product we produce now meets the highest technical standards of the European market and, with our base conveniently located in Southern Germany, we can offer planning assistance, maintenance, installation support and pre- and aftersales service in a customer’s own language and time zone.”
In charge of the European operation is Michiel Hettinga, a well-known name in the LED screen industry, who has assembled a team including Roberto Segato, Jens Schelde, Maarten Hettinga and Andrea Greguoldo.
“Michiel has been in the LED Industry for more than 15 years, working with both Lighthouse Technologies and DisplayLED,” continues Lee. “His team is equally well qualified and the location of the European office is ideal.”
Michiel Hettinga confirms, “We are dedicated to delivering the very best solutions to our customers and excited about making the Ledman name as well known in Europe as it is in China.”
