During the tour, the founders of the Optogan group described the recent developments in the field of LED lighting and reported on their development aims for the Russian and global market.

 "Optogan is a prime example of a Bavarian-Russian high tech company. The manufacturing plants in Landshut, Bavaria and St. Petersburg, Russia, are through Optogan’s presence, economically and technologically connected, " stated Hans Schleicher, Permanent Secretary of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology.

The Optogan Group has office locations, among others, in Landshut and St. Petersburg. The plant in Landshut produces high performance LED chips, conducts and directs the international business. St. Petersburg is responsible for the LED housing and packaging along with the end assembly of luminants and luminaires.

"Our offices complement each other perfectly. Due to a Russian modernisation offensive, the primary energy consumption should be reduced by 40 % by the end of 2020. With the introduction of LED technology Optogan is able to make a decisive contribution," said Hans Peter Ehweiner, CEO of Optogan GmbH.
