Currently, with the common challenges facing all countries in the world such as climate change, energy shortage and economic development, it has become an inevitable choice to take a road of energy conservation, environmental protection and sustainable development. LED products have notable advantages in saving energy, while developing the LED industry is an important part of a low carbon economy. Cree boasts of unique GaN and SiC LED material technologies and advanced white light technologies and is a leader in technological innovation and core technologies.

Cree has leveraged its international channels and Chinese wisdom to establish an internationalized team and taken advantage of local wisdom to achieve faster development in the Chinese market. China is an important market for Cree. Currently, over half of its employees work and live in China. Cree will continue to increase its investment in China, train more talent, research and develop more technologies and produce more best-quality products. Cree has a strong local management team and rich production experiences and enjoys a solid foundation in Huizhou. The opening of Cree Huizhou Solid State Lighting Co., Ltd. signifies a new milestone in Cree’s drive to “base on China to serve China and the whole world!”
