Computaleta has signed an exclusive channel partnership with Osram, the German multi-national lighting giant.
The deal sees Computaleta providing LED modules and drivers for illuminated signage to the New Zealand market.
Arlette Farland, director at Computaleta, says, “It will be of tremendous benefit to the industry to have this quality product available for the first time. When it comes to government, corporate and everyday work, Osram is what New Zealand signage companies are looking for in terms of consistency and safety.
“We want to offer sign makers high quality matched LED modules and drivers that they can rely on. Combine that with a technical support that is second to none; we can do that best with Osram.”
A more sustainable product
The channel partnership with Osram means it can offer a patented square lens technology. This achieves ideal uniformity by reducing black spots. She says, “This technology also decreases the number of modules usually required. It lowers the overall system costs through easy installation and simple replacement during maintenance. The final product minimises light pollution. It is real time adjusted according to daylight, reducing electricity costs. This, paired with halogen-free construction, makes for a safer, more sustainable product.
“Computaleta will stock a comprehensive range of LED modules and drivers for backlit light boxes and channel letters, flexible LED, and sidelit applications ensuring signage companies can provide maximum freedom of design.”
Darren Miruzzi, head of sales for Osram Australia and New Zealand, says, “We are excited to team up with Computaleta because of what it represents in the New Zealand market: an excellent reputation, an enviable market network and, most importantly, a comprehensive understanding of the signage industry.”
Computaleta has hired signwriter and LED lighting specialist, Aaron Morrison, to head up its LED Lighting Division. For the last seven years he has been quoting, making, and supplying effective illuminated signage to the Australian market.
Morrison will provide a technical service to signage companies, advice on product and map light boxes, and channel letters to ensure correct illumination, and ease of installation.
Osram, one of the world’s largest lighting manufacturers, has won numerous high profile awards for its sustainability and for the quality of its technology.
