Lumenpulse opens UK EMEA HQ

Monteal-based LED manufacturer, Lumenpulse, has today announced the opening of an EMEA sales headquarters based in London.

Operations at the London based, located in Leathermarket near London Bridge, will begin immediately. The office will provide sales, technical and application support for countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.

Running the new office will be Gorm Teichert, Lumenpulse executive vice president of international sales. Teichert has over 20 years’ experience within the LED industry.

He said the choice of London was strategic. ‘As well as being an international transport hub, London is a major centre for the architectural and lighting design community. We’re now in the perfect position to be able to offer close support to UK-based specifiers and our international customer base.’

Lumenpulse’s corporate headquarters is based in Montreal, Canada and the company has an American headquarters in Boston. It has experienced 112 per cent growth in personnel in the past year and a 505 per cent two-year revenue growth.
