The California-based LED lighting manufacturer Bivar and UK-based Marl International have formed an international opto-electronics partnership with manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe and Asia and a portfolio of approximately 24,000 high performance LED and light pipe products.
The partnership will supply and support customers around the world through a global network of agents and distributors.
The companies spent two years looking at how they could more effectively combine their strengths to the benefit of both sets of existing and potential customers and the agreement is the first phase of a joint strategic plan on the part of both companies.
Adrian Rawlinson, the Managing Director of Marl, said “The synergies and potential between the two companies are phenomenal. Our collaboration is particularly exciting because it’s bilateral. We will be promoting availability of Bivar products in the UK and Europe whilst Bivar are accelerating development of Marl products in North America.”
The two companies first initiative is “moving light to the front of the panel” with the launch of an enhanced product range of panel mount indicators and flexible light pipes with a wide variety of features and options based on metal and cost effective nylon housings. The dynamic nature of the collaboration also enables both organisations to encourage enquiries for custom solutions.
