Taiwan based company Radiant Optoelectronics,which makes backlight modules for personal computers, has intended to enter into LED lighting sector this year, with commercial products to be primary products in the initial stage, according to its Chairman B.R. Wang. The company will start to build up competitive strength and footholds for its LED lighting operation over next three to five years.
Wang said the company will make most of its advantage in light guide plate R&D to drum up built-to-order contracts among international lighting brands. And the company’s lighting operation can provide customers with integrated service using its light guide plate technology and backlight module knowhow.
Wang pointed out that although the company does not have integrated manufacturing capability boasted by many of existing LED lighting manufacturers on the island, its unmatched procurement volume of LEDs every month provides it with the bargaining chip for price negotiation with LED suppliers.
In contrast with other LED companies are concerned about issues associated with light intensity and price, Wang is considering how to make the lamps look more charming.
