More funding from Philips for sustainable lighting solutions

Dynalite has been renamed Philips Dynalite following its recent acquisition by Royal Philips Electronics. It will be part of Philips Lighting’s Lighting Electronics business, and 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 have plans to drive the global shift towards sustainable lighting technologies. “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.

“On a day-to-day basis it’s business as usual,” said Gunton. “However, we look forward to expanding our portfolio of solutions and embarking on an exciting new chapter of our 20-year history.”
