Herbert Willmy-Quensen, the former CEO of SITECO, has withdrawn as an active member of management, but will continue to serve as an adviser to the company. He supervised the spin-off of OSRAM and the sale of SITECO in the summer of 2019, thereby setting the course for its independent restart.

 

Sustainability, flexibility and quality of life as pillars of the product portfolio

“We can no longer look at light in isolation,” CEO Körner said. Today’s world requires connected solutions that are integrated into central management and automation systems. “With individual solutions that extend all the way to the development of special luminaires, we address the specific needs of our customers in the application areas of municipalities, sport & events, industrial and area lighting, retail and office.”

"We have developed a focused roadmap for products and technologies," says CTO Vegter. Business partners and customers can expect a burst of innovative products, beginning with the globally unique SIRIUS high-performance floodlight and the revolutionary Licross trunking system.

With its new portfolio, SITECO will once again focus on project business and address three megatrends: sustainability, flexibility and quality of life.
