After selling the family business ‘Lighting Partner’, Quinten van de Vrie founded ‘Illuxtron’ in 2009 because of the market opportunities he saw in the LED lighting field. At the time, Quinten had 25 years of experience in the lighting market.
Due to the company’s continuous process monitoring, projects in LED applications are of high quality. With the flexible and cost-effective products, the company can easily respond to the rapidly changing product mix and volume requirement in the lighting industry. Illuxtron’ products make their way to the market through electro technical and specialized technical lighting wholesalers. In 2013, Illuxtron acquired the brand ‘Eyeleds’, allowing the company to strengthen its position in the professional market.
Illuxtron aims to become a leading player in the LED industry. This objective is achieved by offering high-quality fixtures at competitive prices.
The Illuxtron team consists of employees with many years of experience with leading brand and production innovations. The team takes care of the entire process, from the first concept on paper to the realization of the prototype and product delivery.
Quinten: “To continue our growth and be able to create sufficient stock levels, our company required additional financing that went beyond what banks could provide. We then chose KIKK Capital (fund: ZIF) because of their ability to provide financing, as well as advice regarding certain issues by leading people from the Dutch business industry.”
Quinten: “We regularly get together to evaluate the results of the past period and to discuss future opportunities. These discussions keep us sharp and ensure extra motivation within the company to develop the company as well as possible.”
