Dec 7, 2010 Royal Philips has announced that it has acquired the privately owned NCW Holdings LTD (NCW). Headquartered in Hong Kong and with a manufacturing subsidiary in mainland China, NCW is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of LED, conventional entertainment lighting and lighting control solutions for global markets. No financial details on the transaction were disclosed.
NCW will be integrated into the Entertainment business segment of Philips Professional Luminaires, adding to an existing portfolio of highly successful entertainment lighting solutions from leading brands like Vari-Lite, Strand and Selecon.
NCW, founded in 1992 and currently employing around 450 people, specializes in indoor and outdoor theatrical LED lighting and control solutions for the entertainment market.
