Meet our master minds

We believe in possessing a curious and open mindset. This attitude fosters a culture where people are respected and encouraged to boldly exchange ideas and work together on ground-breaking lighting solutions.


How a work light is born

We are enthusiastic to have our own in-house R&D department with facilities like mechanical, electrical and light labs, and state-of-the-art testing labs. Our R&D team also work with the latest in simulation software. This enables us to design and develop work and driving lights for the heavy-duty vehicle industry according to very high standards.

Lighting plays a critical role in the efficiency and safety of heavy machinery, and only a limited number of lighting manufacturers are able to meet the requirements of the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of heavy-duty vehicles. If you want to find out how we utilize the R&D facilities, and learn more about the steps in our R&D process, check out Jyrki’s step-by-step explanation above of how a work light is born.

Strong product development expertise is one of our strengths, and we have 30 years of experience of close cooperation with many of the world’s largest manufacturers of heavy-duty vehicles.

The goal of our team is to develop modular, manufacturing-friendly products that meet the customer’s needs. We work closely with our customers from design to production, aiming to develop lighting solutions that are optimized for the specific heavy-duty vehicle.
