Japanese LED lighting manufacturer CCS has acquired 100 per cent of the shares of its French competitor Effilux. Effilux has become a wholly owned subsidiary of CCS.

Through the acquisition, CCS aims to accelerate the growth of its overseas machine vision business. CCS will look to strengthen its product capabilities through the two companies’ complementing line-ups and actively using the technical capabilities of both firms.

Headquartered in France, Effilux and its sales subsidiary in Germany, specialise in developing, manufacturing and selling LED lighting for machine vision image processing applications in Europe. Effilux’s net sales for the year ended 2017 was approximately €3.4 million.
