With the Landshut facilities, Optogan runs Europe’s second largest LED chip production site with an initial capacity of more than a billion LED chips per year. The company, founded in 2004 by a group of Russian physicists in Finland, already runs Eastern Europe’s largest LED production in St. Petersburg.
According to the company, the Landshut site forms the basis of the international sales activities carried out by the Optagon group. At the fab, Optagon plans to start with the production of indium gallium nitride (InGaN) LEDs – blue LEDs which in combination with phosphor generate white light at very high efficiency. This type of LED is used for LCD screen backlighting purposes as well as for automotive and general lighting applications. Production in Landshut is scheduled for ramp-up in November.
Optogan GmbH General Manager Hans Peter Ehweiner said the Landshut location offers an "ideal infrastructure for high-volume production of LED chips". In addition, the region offers well qualified staff.
