TULTITLAN, Mexico and SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OSRAM Mexico and Evolucia, Inc. (OTCBB & OTCQB: ILED), announce today that they have finalized an agreement whereby the companies will develop, deliver and market OSRAM ProPoint™ Cobrahead LED outdoor luminaires using Evolucia Aimed Optics™. Under the agreement, the companies will work together to integrate Evolucia's award winning Aimed Optics™ technology with superior LED modules and lighting controls from OSRAM. The combination is expected to result in one of the highest performing and highest quality LED outdoor luminaires in the industry.
"The combination of cutting edge LED technology from OSRAM with Evolucia's industry leading light distribution capabilities allows us to deliver high-performance and superior quality LED outdoor luminaires to our customer base," said Paolo Bortolan, Presidente y Director General - CEO of OSRAM Mexico. "The new OSRAM ProPoint™ Cobrahead using Evolucia Aimed Optics™ outdoor luminaire delivers the perfect amount of clean white light to the target area and uses up to 62% less energy than traditional fixtures."
Evolucia, Inc. is a Sarasota, Florida-based company that recently won the lighting industry's coveted Best LED Street Light award, in its category, which was presented by the US Department of Energy, largely because of the proprietary Aimed Optics technology that was invented by the company's lighting design team.
Mel Interiano, Chief Executive Officer of Evolucia, said, "We are extremely pleased to be partnering with OSRAM Mexico. We have invested more than $25 million in our Aimed Optics product development platform and have spent 5 years working to perfect the LED mounting angles, heat sinking and aesthetics to ensure that not only performance is at the highest level, but also that our products can be manufactured and delivered at extremely competitive prices."

The company's portfolio covers the entire value chain from components – including lamps, opto semiconductors like light-emitting diodes (LED) – to electronic control gears as well as complete luminaires, light management systems and lighting solutions.
