MVV Enamic invests in lighting specialist luminatis

MVV Energie subsidiary acquires 26 percent stake in Luxembourg company

The Mannheim-based energy company MVV Energie aims to address the growing demand from industry, business and local authorities for high-efficiency, and thus cost-cutting, lighting solutions directly in future. To this end, via its MVV Enamic subsidiary it has acquired a 26 percent stake in the Luxembourg-based lighting specialist luminatis. The contract was signed this Wednesday in Luxembourg, where luminatis has its headquarters.

"In luminatis, we have gained an innovative partner offering great expertise and experience when it comes to energy-efficient lighting, one that fits in superbly with our business", stressed Dr. Joachim Hofmann, Managing Director of MVV Enamic. "Pooling their strengths, our companies can jointly offer customised products and services in the high-growth LED market", added Klaus Nesser, one of the two founders of luminatis.

The two companies have already developed and successfully implemented the "Smart-Light-Efficiency" product. In a contracting solution, the factory halls at Werzalit GmbH + Co. KG in Oberstenfeld/Baden-Würtemmberg have been equipped with high-efficiency LED lights. This enabled the customer to generate noticeable cost savings from the first day onwards.
