The company had been part of the Panasonic Group since the takeover in 2002 and was acquired by Fidelium in a carve-out with the aim of positioning Vossloh-Schwabe as a flexible and independent medium-sized company. In the future, the company will tackle the challenges of a highly dynamic lighting market and continuously develop new solutions in the field of Smart Lighting in order to meet the increasing demands on lighting systems in terms of connectivity and automation and to tap further market potential.
