LITE in strategic cooperation
JK Belysning (JK Lighting) is a new company in the Swedish market, but with 14 years of experience behind it. Founder Joakim Knapp has previously worked for companies such as Schréder, General Electric, Scan Interlight and Veksö.
He has worked with all kinds of lighting solutions for a wide variety of customer segments. With his company JK Belysning, Joakim will focus on customer service and close cooperation with the customers: "It must be the right product and the right lighting for each project - neither less nor more!
I think it could be incredibly exciting to work with my own company. I want to work with companies that are willing to grow with me and create products that are adapted to the Swedish market.
LITE is a constantly evolving company that wants to create value. A good example is their ECOLITE concept, which is tested for its recycling value and fits into a modern circular finance strategy.
Currently, I work with LITE to update and further develop the street light products. The first step is to optimize the lenses to suit the Swedish standards, while at the same time making the specifications of the products more project-friendly. In addition, the certificates of the products must be updated from ENEC to ENEC +.
I expect to be ready with the products for the Swedish market in January / February 2019." Says Joakim Knapp, owner of JK Belysning.
Lars Andersen, CEO of LITE A/S says about the collaboration: "We at LITE are happy to be able to attract a profile like Joakim, with many years of experience in the street lighting industry. It has been our goal to find someone with knowledge of the market, I feel we have succeeded with this. We will now focus on entering the Swedish market wihtin the next few years.
We are very happy with Joakim as part of our team. He fits in well and already feels like a close colleague.This is something we really appreciate at LITE! "
