Today, Cyberlux Corporation and Bruni Industria Mobili SRL announce the formation of a joint venture that will address the solid-state lighting needs of the European marketplace. Bruni Industria Mobili SRL, a 51-year-old furniture, fixture and consumer products manufacturing conglomerate located in Sora, Italy, is one of the largest manufacturers of furnishing products, including lighting products and fixtures, for the European market.
Under the terms of the agreement, Cyberlux Corporation has granted Bruni Industria the European marketing and distribution rights for the Cyberlux products, and Cyberlux and Bruni Industria Mobili SRL will integrate Cyberlux technology into Bruni Industria products.
"The joint venture with Bruni Industria Mobili SRL is another significant milestone for Cyberlux Corporation. The Bruni Industria organization has a vast reach within the European marketplace and a product scope that will extend the Cyberlux technology further into the enormous general lighting market segments. For example, the Cyberlux Aeon technology will be adapted to the products produced by the Divisione Arredamento Negozi, which manufactures retail furniture and fixtures for commercial use. In addition, the Bruni distribution network will give our existing products access to the important European market," said Don Evans, Chairman and CEO of Cyberlux.
Cyberlux and Bruni Industria expect the joint venture to begin operating in early 4th quarter of 2005, with the initial focus on extending the existing Cyberlux products into the numerous European channels supplied by Bruni Industria. In addition, the joint venture will begin integrating the Cyberlux solid-state lighting technology into the various Bruni product segments where long-lasting, virtually heatless, maintenance-free, energy-efficient lighting will revolutionize the lighting solutions used in the Bruni Industria business.
"Our relationship with Cyberlux Corporation will marry the next generation of lighting technology with our manufacturing and distribution of furniture and fixtures, one of the largest in Europe. The Cyberlux products and technology are well designed and remarkably engineered, and will be immediately accepted in the European markets. As Bruni Industria integrates the Cyberlux solid-state lighting technology into our products, we expect that the virtually heatless energy efficiency and the long-life performance will allow us to offer our customers revolutionary fixture and furnishing solutions," said Ennio Bruni, Chairman of Bruni Industria Mobili SRL.
Cyberlux Corporation has developed breakthrough solid-state lighting technology that provides the most energy efficient and cost effective lighting solutions available today. The Aeon products bring newly developed heatless light into the residential and commercial market for use in closets, cabinet interiors, under-cabinet lighting and kitchen counters. The Aeon Pro E product, with energy efficiency levels of 55 lumens per watt, exceeds the 40 lumen per watt requirement of California's Title 24 mandate for kitchen and bath lighting. The ReliaBright products are designed to address emergencies such as power outages or critical security lighting needs for residential, commercial and military markets. The newly announced RelyOn ultra-bright light with power plant provides the best portable work and emergency lighting solution available. In addition, Cyberlux consumer products, such as the newly announced KEON KeyCap™, provide practical lighting solutions for every consumer.
