A couple of weeks ago we talked about Osram, one of the oldest and best respected lighting companies in the world. Today we are going to talk about a well known company called Verbatim which has been around since 1978 and has made its name in tapes, SD cards, flash drives, CD and DVD disks. Verbatim is owned by Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation of Japan and is based in North Carolina, USA.
The company has quickly and seamlessly moved into LED lighting and already made a significant stamp on the worlds LED market. The very high quality and good price point of their range has seen them become a familiar brand in lighting stores. If the success of their digital media products is any indication, Verbatim LED lights will be giving the big boys like Osram and Philips a run for their money in the branded LED lighting market.
When we first received the samples from Verbatim, we were very impressed and frankly surprised at how compact and classy they looked, but more importantly they ‘punch out some serious light’. The Verbatim 10w Classic A LED bulb is a perfect example of how far ahead Verbatim is in terms of light output in their price range.
I suspect we are going to be seeing a lot more of Verbatim in the Australian lighting industry.
