Barthelme and bluleu announce a strategic partnership

Barthelme LED Solutions and bluleu LED Solutions have entered into a strategic partnership to maximize the benefits of existing synergies. The partnership will benefit from an extension of their combined product and services ranges to existing and new market segments.

Barthelme, the Nuremburg based LED-technology specialist, has had an excellent working relationship with bluleu LED Solutions GmbH und Co. KG for some time.  Founded in 1931 by Josef Barthelme, the family owned and managed company offers a wide range of high quality luminaires, profiles and controls for customised requirements. Product design, development and manufacturing occurs mainly in Germany.

The primary focus of bluleu currently is LED light systems for the maritime market. The company, based in Pattensen-Schulenburg in the Hanover region, provides a project management service – from consulting, development and documentation through to installation and commissioning by their own sea-steady installation crews. With the fully encapsulated LED stripes of the AQUALUC family from Barthelme, which bluleu markets under the name “SHIPLED”, the partners have already concluded many successful projects. The latest example is the cruise ship “Anthem of the Seas” which left harbour for the first time in March 2015. A vast number of the homogeneous illuminating ShipLED flex with white and blue LED’s have been installed as contour and safety lighting.
“We can provide optimal lighting solutions due to our experience with installations in demanding environments”, explains bluleu Managing Director, Frank Blume. “With Barthelme as a strong development and production partner, we can expand our product range extensively – especially with regards to special and highly complex lighting applications.”

“The requirements of the customer is the primary issue for both Barthelme and bluleu. With our common philosophy and service values we are ideally set up to successfully conclude lighting projects in demanding environments as envisioned  by the customer”, adds Managing Director, Nicola Barthelme.

The „Anthem of the Seas“ shines on the high seas with the jointly implemented lighting concept by bluleu LED Solutions and Barthelme.
