The Zumtobel Group is active around the globe, offering a strong local presence on the ground. Luminaire sales are grouped into three distribution channels. In the “Specification” channel, specialised sales advisors work with architects, lighting designers and electrical planners from start to finish of a building project, contributing their expertise to the development of specifications for suitable lighting solutions. In the “End-User” channel, another team of specialists provides services targeting end-users in the industrial, commercial and municipal sectors, as well as private customers. In the “Trade” channel, numerous sales employees cater to the needs of wholesalers and electricians in all of the Zumtobel Group’s seven sales regions. Because our sales organisation is aimed at meeting the needs of different customer groups, we can provide in-depth and targeted service on the ground. As a company that aspires to innovation leadership in the lighting industry, we are committed to outstanding quality in every segment of our business. From the careful selection of suppliers and compliance with international production standards, this principle extends all the way to our professional after-sales service.

All of our production facilities are certified in line with ISO 9001, and the certification process serves as the basis for the continuous development of our quality standards. The improvement of processes and products is professionally managed through our continuous improvement process. We apply Lean Six Sigma methodology to systematically minimise potential sources of error. Our lean management experts optimise processes and cut back activities that do not create value. The Zumtobel Group guarantees that all our products comply with the applicable standards and regulations. This includes in particular standards for lighting applications, international electrical engineering standards such as IEC, EN, and UL (USA), as well as legal requirements such as the CE certificate. In addition, we conform to voluntary certifications such as ENEC. We test our products in internationally accredited light laboratories to ensure compliance with norms and standards as well as quality and safety criteria.

In a highly competitive market, marked by the technology shift to LEDs and ever shorter innovation cycles and product lifetimes, new business models are more essential than ever. Innovation driven by superior technology is a core element of the Zumtobel Group. The Group leverages the synergies that result from collaboration between its brands in the luminaire and component segments, and applies a platform strategy in its product development activities.
