Toshiba Seeks Europe Lighting Tie-Ups to Take on Philips

Toshiba Corp. plans to sign at least three partnerships in the next 12 months to manufacture lighting fixtures in Europe as it seeks to become the region’s third-biggest supplier of light-emitting diodes.

The fixtures -- which attach lamps to ceilings and walls -- are key for expansion as clients increasingly demand complete systems to integrate LEDs into homes, offices and factories, Francois Seguineau, head of Toshiba’s European lighting operations, said in a phone interview.
