Between the 2007/08 and 2012/13 financial years, revenues from the sale of magnetic ballasts at Tridonic fell by 60 percent. In the 2012/13 financial year, magnetics accounted for just 9.4 percent of Tridonic’s total revenues of EUR 377.7 million.
Today’s decision will enable Tridonic to focus more strongly than ever on LED technology. In 2012/13 the proportion of Tridonic’s revenues accounted for by LED products rose to 18.9 percent. Current projects include the forthcoming launch of a new generation of LED converters in what is one of the most important core projects at Tridonic in the current financial year.
The decision to pull out of the magnetic business is preliminary, pending its approval by the Supervisory Board of Zumtobel AG.
* Ecodesign Directive: The Directive provides consistent EU-wide rules for the environmentally compatible design of energy-related products. The most relevant impact for the lighting components industry concerns inefficient magnetic ballasts for fluorescent lamps.
