OptiLED announced a partnership with Philips-Construlita, a division of Philips Lighting in Mexico, further expanding the company's global reach into Mexico and the surrounding region. With this deal, OptiLED LEDs will be sold in 55 major stores in Mexico and supply hundreds of other lighting distributors. In addition, Philips-Construlita will incorporate OptiLED lamps in their new Terrane product line of in-ground and submersible fixtures.

Philips-Construlita is the largest network of retail lighting stores and exclusive dealers in Mexico. This exclusive distribution deal will allow OptiLED to increase its global customer base, which has been spreading throughout Latin and South America over the past year. The partnership also speaks to the worldwide growing acceptance of LED technology as the regions are noting the products' durability, energy conservation, and long life.

"Philips and OptiLED reviewed our respective solid-state lighting offerings and found that our products compliment each other and enhance the breath of our total offering," says OptiLED vice president Bruce Pelton. "This partnership will further extend our reach into South America and allow millions in that region access to our broad selection of LED lamps."

"OptiLED's combination of LEDs and innovative optical technology provides a perfect enhancement to our product line tailored for consumers and lighting professionals," says Jorge Avila, director general, Philips-Construlita Lighting.
