July 15, 2015 – Royal Philips reports Hubbell Lighting Inc. has joined its LED Luminaires & Retrofit Bulbs Licensing Program, through which the latter will have access to Philips’ LED control and system-level technologies.
“Philips is a respected inventor in the LED market and we believe their innovations improve many of our product offerings to the market,” said Kevin Poyck, group president for Hubbell Lighting.
“We believe having licensees like Hubbell in our open and accessible license program will further accelerate the adoption of LED lighting,” said Arian Duijvestijn, senior vice-president at Philips Intellectual Property & Standards.
Launched in 2008, the program provides access to over 220 inventions and over 1400 granted patents to companies that sell their own branded LED products for general illumination, architectural, entertainment and theatrical markets.
