Illuxtron International’s founders have a long history in the lighting industry. In 1975 Quinten van de Vrie Sr. laid out the foundation for the first E-27 spots. These quickly began to attract the attention of large companies because at the dawn of halogen technology in the early 1980s, the company gained momentum. Quinten van de Vrie Jr. continued the tradition with GU10 High Voltage Halogen lamps in 1995. It helped the company develop into an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) partner for brands like Lumiance, Trilux, Eyeleds, Philips and Zumtobel Group. After successfully working in the halogen lighting industry, they discovered the opportunities the LED-lighting market had to offer. Quinten van de Vrie founded LedsProgress in 2009.
