Nordeon Luminaires


Invested in:  October 2012 

Status:  active, under management

Philips Lighting B.V., part of Royal Philips Electronics N.V. has decided to sell its professional luminaires manufacturing and warehousing site in Springe, Germany to Varova per October 1st 2012. The former Philips Springe site will continue as an independent company under its new name: NORDEON GmbH. NORDEON specializes in the development and manufacturing of professional luminaires for retail, office, industrial and road lighting, based on conventional and LED technology. In addition, in the coming years it will continue to be an important supplier of indoor and outdoor luminaires to Philips.

As a former AEG and later Philips site, NORDEON taps into almost half a century of experience in the area of lighting design and manufacturing and has a broad base of technical capabilities in the areas of conventional and LED lighting.

NORDEON will use this base to develop and manufacture luminaires for retail, office, industrial and road lighting as well as for OEM clients.

Michael Bartesch, the site’s Managing Director, says: ‘The Springe site boasts a flexible and LEAN manufacturing environment, a strong design and development base, a solid track record in quality and reliability and most importantly: 180 highly motivated and skilled employees. Varova has extensive capabilities and experience in the area of successfully developing standalone businesses out of corporate divestments. This combination gives me a lot of confidence in the future of NORDEON.’
