“Selecon’s highly acclaimed luminaires for the theatrical and architectural markets will further strengthen the breadth of solutions Philips can offer to important professional customers such as performing arts centres, churches, convention centres and hotels,” said Rudy Provoost, chief executive of Philips’ Lighting sector. “Today we are further strengthening the product portfolio of our globally leading entertainment lighting business, building on the foundation provided by the acquisition of Genlyte in 2008.”
Landmarks such as the American Museum of Natural History, Hong Kong
Science Museum, Sydney Opera House and Opera Bastille (Paris) all use
Selecon lighting. Selecon has become part of the Entertainment Group
within the Philips Professional Luminaires business, which also
encompasses the Vari-Lite and Strand Lighting business operations.
The acquisition of Selecon follows the acquisition of Italy-based Ilti
Luce Srl, an LED design company for architectural indoor lighting, just
over a month ago, and is the second such announcement in the Pacific
region in as many weeks (following last week’s acquisition of
Australia-based lighting company Dynalite).
