Medvedev impressed by Optogan’s largest LED Site in Russia
During his official visit the President was able to convince himself of the luminous power produced by the German LED chips used in the Russian built LED lamps.
The recently opened St. Petersburg sister plant to the Bavarian based Landshut company, builds energy efficient LED components and light fittings to fulfil its rapidly growing domestic demand. These lighting elements are now already to be found in private, commercial and complete communal installations world-wide.
Optogan says President Medvedev was clearly impressed by the cutting edge technology and its production plant, and promised to support Optogan in his domestic market. Personally, the President complained that in his own residence every week a bulb needed changing. Clearly the LED technology has advantages here. The LED lamp is projected to last up to 50,000 hours rather than conventional technology which are claimed to last only 1000 hours.

“During the past year we have achieved remarkable results. Our LED production in St. Petersburg started in 2010 and is the largest in East Europe and CIS” reported Maxim Odnoblyudov the CEO of the Optogan group to the Russian President.
“A continual improvement of the technology and the placement of a complete production process in Russia will lead to a noticeable price reduction which, in turn, will lead to even stronger sales within the domestic market.”, continued Odnoblyudov. To achieve this goal, Optogan will enter into co-operation with both national and international lighting manufacturers.
