The Royal Philips Electronics have announced an investment of 40 million Euros to increase production capacity of OLED lighting facility in Aachen. The investment will support the rapid growth of the Philips OLED business, with increased availability of OLED modules for high-end applications in the design of decorative lighting and ambient use. Additional capacity should begin operations by 2012.

OLED as a new lighting technology emits a soft diffused light and provides a new kind of design and is energy efficient. Application of OLED lighting is therefore particularly attractive for high-end retail facilities, services and design of residential buildings because of the possibility of creating attractive decorative and ambient elements that are appealing to consumers with high design awareness.

Rene van Schooten, chief director in Philips Lighting, said: “Due to its small size, OLED technology can easily be integrated into furniture, walls, ceilings or floors in a way that has been unthinkable with other light sources.

This additional investment in OLED manufacturing facility in Aachen will strengthen Philips leadership in innovation in lighting, as well as increase our ability to offer innovative lighting applications that are tailored to the consumer needs.”

Philips has recently opened its Lumiblade Creative Lab in Aachen in which lighting designers, manufacturers of lighting and creative people can experience OLED materials first hand. In addition, Philips has established cooperation in the sphere of development of OLED products with local CERT Institute in Florianopolis, Brazil, and manages product development center in Shanghai in China, where they could develop and customize applications OLED lighting in collaboration with lighting designers around the world.

Some examples of Philips OLED innovations that are already available on the market are: Philips Lumiblade “OLED module which includes all the necessary electronic and mechanical interfaces for easy integration into lamps, furniture and interior design projects, Philips Interactive OLED lighting for hotels and private clients. Finally, the first affordable OLED lighting fixtures, “O’Leaf” manufactured by Philips Modular and “Edge” which was developed by Established & Sons.

Philips’ investment in OLED manufacturing facility in Aachen, the continuation of the implementation of research projects partly funded by the EU, BMBF (German Ministry for Education and Research) and the government of North Rhine-Westphalia.
