Labsphere, Orb Optronix Team
NORTH SUTTON, N.H., and KIRKLAND, Wash., June 8, 2009 – Light measurement companies Labsphere and Orb Optronix have announced a far-reaching collaboration on the development of a broad range of new LED, display and light metrology products.
Under the new agreement, select Orb Optronix LED test instrumentation will be manufactured at Labsphere’s New Hampshire facility. The two companies will also cooperate on the development of a broad range of products, and Orb Optronix plans to expand its thriving LED measurement services laboratory with the addition of several Labsphere systems.
Additionally, the companies will now share sales channels. Orb Optronix’s LED characterization systems and software will be sold through Labsphere’s worldwide sales organization while Labsphere products will be available through Orb Optronix’s US distribution network.
