The architectural division of automated lighting manufacturer Martin Professional A/S and architectural lighting specialist Louis Poulsen Lighting A/S have signed a cooperative agreement that gives Louis Poulsen the exclusive rights to sell Martin Professional's architectural line of products in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. The cooperation, which brings together Scandinavia's two most successful lighting companies, is seen as mutually beneficial.

Martin Professional will benefit from a broad dissemination of its quickly expanding architectural line of luminaires in the Scandinavian market, as well as the advantages of instant recognition that a leading name like Louis Poulsen brings. Martin will also benefit from Louis Poulsen's established sales and distribution network.

For Louis Poulsen, one of the most innovative producers of lighting solutions in the world with a strong Scandinavian presence, it ushers in a move into the dynamic lighting market and reinforces its image as an innovative, forward-thinking company. The firm will now be able to offer the latest automated lighting solutions, as well as its own conventional systems.
