History of Illuxtron International
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.
LedsProgress developed a range of high-end LED luminaires, which the company marketed as ‘Illuxtron’ brand products. Soon ‘Illuxtron’ was known for selling high-end products.
Over the years, LedsProgress grew from a small family business to an international company with more than 35 employees and selling in over 40 countries. Because of the popularity of Illuxtron products and the quality they represent, the company decided to change the company’s name from ‘LedsProgress’ to ‘Illuxtron International’ in July 2015. Today, Illuxtron International carries the brands ‘Illuxtron’ and ‘Eyeleds’.
Quinten van de Vrie founded the brand Eyeleds: ultra slim high-end design lighting for indoor and outdoor. He sold Eyeleds in 2008, shortly before starting LedsProgress. In 2013 LedsProgress repurchased the Eyeleds business unit. This presented the opportunity to significantly expand the product range and serve a broader target group.
