Philips Dynalite looks to the future
Posted on Friday, June 19th, 2009
Following its recent acquisition by Royal Philips Electronics, the newly named Philips Dynalite is looking ahead to bigger and better things. Now a key element of Philips Lighting’s Lighting Electronics Business, Philips Dynalite has been designated a ‘Centre of Design Excellence’ and is tasked with developing smart engineering control solutions for Philips worldwide.
“Our advanced lighting control technology, strong research and development focus, and extensive distribution and dealer network truly complements the Philips Lighting portfolio,” said John Gunton, Philips Dynalite CEO and founder of Dynalite. “The additional resources provided by our new parent company will strengthen our engineering team to ensure fast-tracking of R&D and the delivery of new products to market sooner.”
Philips and Philips Dynalite share a genuine commitment to energy management solutions, and have plans to drive the global shift towards sustainable lighting technologies. With a proven track-record of working together, Philips Dynalite has recently teamed up with Philips to deliver a sophisticated energy management lighting control solution at the new landmark office building of PetroChina, China’s largest oil and gas producer and distributor.
“Going forward, the integrated offering available from Philips Dynalite will include fixtures and lamps in addition to ballast control, dimming and control functionality,” Gunton said. “This broader solution-set, featuring fully integrated best-of-breed components, will provide compelling lighting solutions for not only energy management applications, but also the hospitality, home automation and architectural lighting sectors.”
Supported by this injection of resources and technology, Philips Dynalite will continue to manufacture from its headquarters in Sydney, Australia. Founded in 1989, the company also has offices in China, UK and the Middle-East, and is represented by the Philips Dynalite Dimension distributor and dealer network in over 40 countries.
According to Gunton, Philips Dynalite will maintain the high level of service and support its partners and customers have come to expect. “On a day-to-day basis it’s business as usual,” he said. “However, we look forward to expanding our portfolio of solutions and embarking on an exciting new chapter of our 20-year history.”
