Fagerhult and Greenlux make LED sales and marketing agreement

Fagerhult has agreed to sell and market products from Finnish lighting design firm Greenlux

Greenlux will deliver LED luminaires to Fagerhult for marketing and sale under the Fagerhult brand.

The deal means Fagerhult is able to meet the growing demand for energy efficient lighting applications.

The collaboration with Fagerhult provides access to a large number of new markets and an existing customer base for Greenlux luminaires.

The first targets for collaboration will include large-scale projects in which the number of units in a single sale, when completed, will be larger than the total number of units produced by Greenlux in three years.

Roope Ropponen, Greenlux sales director, said: ‘Our company has exceptional sites as references in realising general lighting with our LED luminaires, but the acceptance of our products among Fagerhult’s models removes the last vestiges of doubt about their functionality and reliability.

‘When we take into account Fagerhult’s existing organisation, we can see that the agreement fulfils nearly all our goals for rapid international growth.

‘Using our own sales organisation, we will achieve about 200 per cent growth in turnover this year and the belief in at least the same measure of continued rapid growth next year is strong, particularly when our collaboration with Fagerhult really gets underway.’
