Martin Buys R&D International

Martin Professional has continued its expansion into LED and video technology by buying the Belgian development company it’s been working with since 1995.

Martin – based in Aarhus, Denmark, and one of the world leaders in the production of automated lighting for the entertainment industry, with subsidiaries and distributors in 90 countries – announced June 2 it had acquired R&D International, which specialises in the research and development of hardware and software for the lighting industry.

R&D International managing director Ferdinand Philipsen said it’s a "win-win" situation because the synergies created will positively affect the development process all the way from the idea stage to production.
