Philips Lighting’s EnabLED Licensing Program Signs 100 New Licensees to Reach 800 Members

Philips Lighting, a global leader in lighting, announced that it has signed up its 800th member for its EnabLED Licensing Program for LED luminaires and retrofit bulbs. 

The 100 new members, which represent small- and medium-sized businesses as well as large multinationals, come from all around the world. A significant number of the new licensees are manufacturers of retrofit bulbs or private label retailers. In addition to these mainstream markets, new members are also active in a wide range of niche markets including automotive auxiliary lighting, aquarium lighting and ceiling fans.
