The new joint venture, Cree Venture LED Company, Ltd., will bring together the technology and brand leader in lighting class LEDs with a world class LED supplier. Leveraging Cree’s superior portfolio of patents and global sales channels, this joint venture will bring to market a broad portfolio of high-performance mid-power products to serve the fast growing, $4 billion global mid-power LED market.

“This joint venture builds on both companies’ leading product and channel capabilities to give Cree the ability to provide our LED customers a complete range of high-power and mid-power LED products to serve a broad range of markets and applications,” said Chuck Swoboda, Cree president and CEO.
 
“The addition of the mid-power LED products in this new joint venture to Cree’s industry-leading high-power products gives us an unparalleled LED portfolio,” stated Dave Emerson, Cree LEDs senior vice president and general manager. “With our LED systems expertise, customers are able to work with our existing channels to find the best LEDs for their applications.”
 
Located in Hong Kong, Cree Venture LED Company, Ltd. will be led by TK Ong, General Manager, who brings to the joint venture extensive experience in the LED market, and will be governed by a board of directors with members from both companies. Cree will own 51 percent of the joint venture, and San’an will own 49 percent of the joint venture.
