Plessey included in the Lux Magazine Power List 2014

Plymouth, Devon, (PresseBox) - Plessey today announced that it has been named in this month's edition of Lux Magazine featuring the top 25 innovative lighting companies.

Robert Bain, Editor of Lux Magazine said, "The Power List is Lux's pick of the most exciting lighting companies in the UK. When we heard Plessey was manufacturing LEDs right here in the UK, we had to find out more. Plessey is using GaN-on-Silicon technology to unlock manufacturing efficiencies and drive down the cost of LED lighting - and they're doing it in Devon. This is unique and has the potential to bring real benefits to the world of LED lighting. Plessey has earned its place on our Power List, and we'll be keeping our eye on them."

Dr. Joe Lopez, Chief Commercial Officer for Plessey said, "Plessey is one of a very select few selling GaN-on-Silicon LEDs in the global solid state lighting market - what Plessey has developed is a truly unique technology. The Solid State Lighting (SSL) market is developing very fast and becoming even more price sensitive as it moves into the consumer market where Plessey's manufacturing cost advantage is particularly strong."

Plessey has previously announced that its Gallium Nitride (GaN) on Silicon LEDs are produced using standard high-yield automated processing in contrast with current generations of LEDs which use expensive sapphire and other exotic materials requiring non-standard semiconductor manufacturing processes.
