Technologies will continue to drive its mission as a global leader in
dynamic lighting and general lighting solutions and provide professional
services and support to customers and projects. As a testament to the
long-term trusted partnership with OSRAM, we are delighted to become the
licensee for the OSRAM brand for Traxon’s high quality luminaire
products.”

and our customers along with the ability to foster additional value
creation for customers. Prosperity’s deep roots in the lighting industry,
its experience in luminaires and the long-term relationship between the
companies make this an ideal next step in the evolution of the whole
Traxon team.”

“We look forward to joining the Prosperity family. Both companies have a
deep market knowledge and customer understanding. With a matching
long-term vision of the business and all aspects of strong support, I am
confident Traxon, including its benchmark dynamic lighting controls e:cue,
will continue its mission as a global leader in dynamic lighting and
general lighting solution and providing professional services and support
to customers and projects,” said Selina Lo, General Manager Traxon
