AUGUST 6, 2009--A new LED lighting company, LLD Trading Associates (Milford, NH, USA; www.lldlight.com), has been formed to distribute products in the US that are manufactured by IMAC Machine Vision Lighting (Moriyama, Japan; www.kkimac.jp).
The new company was created by five equal partners: Mamoru Tanaka, president of IMAC; Sachio Kiura, president of Symco (Tokyo, Japan; www.symco.co.jp); Marcel Laflamme former manager for Nerlite; Sheila Dunn, former engineering manager for Nerlite; and Greg Dwyer former product manager for Nerlite.
IMAC, located near Kyoto, manufactures a complete line of LED machine vision lighting and provides engineering support to customers. http://www.vision-systems.com/display_article/324686/19/none/none/COMPN/illunis-expands-distribution-channel-to-Japan Symco is a distributor and provides complete custom vision systems and smart cameras.
Laflamme says the partners believe that the machine vision market will slowly revive in the next four or five quarters and that numerous small businesses will venture into the marketplace. The goal of his company is to provide the US market with high quality lighting products at reasonable prices. Complete offerings will be available on the LLD website in the fall or by requesting a catalog. They can also be seen on the IMAC site.
