MLS bids for Osram’s lamp business

Forest Lighting from Marietta/ Georgia, the American representative of the LED manufacturer MLS from China, has announced that the board.......

has the intention of taking part in the bidding battle for Osram’s lamps business. This puts it in good company with several other firms which also want to take over Osram’s division.

MLS generates a turnover of approx. USD 2 bn (EUR 1.9 bn). In September MSL took over an 11% stake in Kaistar Lighting from Xiamen/ China, who in turn are the owners of Bridgelux from Livermore/California.

As already reported several times, Osram wants to part with its conventional lamps business completely and concentrate in future on special lighting and LED semiconductors.
