Strategic perspectives for the Zumtobel Group in the „International Year of Light“

Light is essential to all life and is vital to humankind in all of life’s situations. To underscore the enormous importance of light for people as well as for the sciences, business and the arts, the UN has proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). Under the guidance of UNESCO and with the support of more than 100 partners from 85 different nations, numerous events are planned throughout the year to promote understanding of the many facets of light. The aim is not only to demonstrate the key role that light plays in our lives, but also to show how global challenges can be met with the help of light.

For the Zumtobel Group, IYL 2015 represents an important year of strategic realignment. With the mission of blazing new trails and showing people what light can do above and beyond its familiar applications, the Company’s goals go hand in hand with the central ideas behind the International Year of Light. Under the leadership of CEO Ulrich Schumacher, the Austrian lighting group has adopted a coherent multi-brand strategy – a “lighting ecosystem”, as it says in the new corporate vision – to create unique value for its customers.

As Zumtobel Group CEO Ulrich Schumacher explains:

“For us, people’s needs are always the primary focus. Light doesn’t merely give us security and guidance or boost people’s performance. Light is emotion – it makes us feel good and brings out the best in buildings, rooms and public spaces. Light is communication, light is adaptable. Light is everywhere. And given the new technological possibilities, we see many new functions of light that we want to use for the benefit of our customers and, of course, other users.

With our differently positioned Zumtobel and Thorn lighting brands and our “electronic brain” Tridonic, we have everything we need under a single roof to be a pioneer, setting the pace in the international lighting industry.

Our employees are our three brands’ most important assets. Their expertise and passion for light form the cornerstone of our culture of innovation – together with our ongoing exchange of knowledge with our long-standing partners from different disciplines and our deep-seated understanding of our customers’ requirements. Paired with our multi-brand strategy, this makes it possible to leverage synergies while at the same time optimally serving the needs of our customers.

In a highly competitive market characterised by shifting technology and increasingly short innovation and product life cycles, new business models are more necessary than ever. This is why we must continue to move our business in the direction of services in the future. With this in mind, it is important to build an interdisciplinary structure that will allow the Company to meet the needs of our modern society and take specific advantage of opportunities presented by the technology shift.”


Outlook: Further activities in IYL 2015:

The Zumtobel Group will kick off its International Year of Light activities in April with an international customer event in Bregenz, Austria. This will feature prominent speakers such as internationally renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, neuromarketing expert, Dr. Hans-Georg Häusel, Bernd Werner, member of the management board of Nymphenburg Consult AG, co-founder of the Sustainable

Living Urban Model Laboratory (S.L.U.M. Lab) Hubert Klumpner and Internet-of-Things expert Karl

Jonsson of Silicon Valley. The program will again underscore the many facets of light in a wide array of forms and disciplines. The Group’s three brands, Thorn, Tridonic and Zumtobel, will take also advantage of the event to showcase their latest products, solutions and innovations.

The Zumtobel Group will be conducting a variety of activities in different regions throughout the

International Year of Light. All upcoming events are listed at events.htm. The latest information on the Zumtobel Group and its activities can be also be found on Twitter at

Zumtobel Group: Background information

Multi-brand approach drives success

Platform strategy boosts cost- and process efficiency

The Company

The Zumtobel Group is a leading global player offering innovative, high-quality lighting solutions and lighting components. The Group pursues a multi-brand strategy that allows it to provide its customers – with many of whom it enjoys close, long-standing relations – with a comprehensive range of products and services.

The product portfolios of the Thorn and Zumtobel brands, which are positioned differently within the luminaire sector, are marketed by a single sales organisation. This allows customers to profit from a very broad spectrum of products across the full range of applications in professional indoor and outdoor lighting, including lighting control components and systems.

In the components sector, through its Tridonic subsidiary the Zumtobel Group applies proven electronics and software expertise to create innovative system solutions that incorporate the latest technology trends. Tridonic supplies luminaire manufacturers across the globe with control gear, lighting management systems and LED modules. Within the Zumtobel Group, Tridonic follows a platform strategy, using the same components in Thorn and Zumtobel luminaires and thereby boosting both cost and process efficiency.

The Group has set itself the goal of continuously expanding its portfolio of services. The idea is to offer customers a full-service experience, starting with a needs analysis and continuing through planning and financing all the way to installation and maintenance of the lighting solution.

A pioneer that sets the pace in the lighting industry

Above all, the mission of the Zumtobel Group is to create unique value for its customers, taking lighting beyond illumination. And to focus on improving the quality of life through the vital element of light. With its many years of experience, the combined expertise of its workforce, and its global network of leading technology partners, lighting designers, architects and artists, the Zumtobel Group sees itself as a pioneer, setting the pace in the international lighting industry.

Presence in 90 countries

Zumtobel AG is a listed company with 14 production plants on four continents and sales offices and partners in about 90 countries. With a workforce currently numbering approximately 7,291 employees, the Group posted revenues of EUR 1,246.8 million in the 2013/14 financial year. The

Zumtobel family remains the largest single shareholder with a stake of 35 percent, providing stability and continuity. The Group is based in Dornbirn in the Vorarlberg region of Austria.


Zumtobel Group: Background information

Market position

One of the few global players in the lighting industry

With production plants and sales activities around the world, the Zumtobel Group is one of the few global players in the lighting industry. Some 80 percent of the Group’s revenues are generated in Europe, its most important market. The professional lighting sector in Europe is highly fragmented; the ten largest European luminaire manufacturers cover only just over 35 percent of the total market. With its Thorn and Zumtobel brands, the Zumtobel Group is the market leader in this fragmented environment.

R&D collaboration between Group brands creates synergies

Expansion of market position in times of shifting technology

In contrast, the global conventional component sector shows a higher degree of consolidation. In the

LED module and LED converter segments, however, many new suppliers have been pushing into the market for several years now, primarily from Asia. The Zumtobel Group’s Tridonic brand is a global leader in control gear and lighting control systems.

Due to synergies generated by R&D collaboration between the lighting and component segments, the Zumtobel Group can take advantage of significant economies of scale that are not available to smaller competitors. With its multi-brand strategy, comprehensive product portfolio and multichannel market access, the Zumtobel Group is well placed to continue expanding its market position during the technology shift to LEDs. In addition, the Group profits from its strong technology position, long-standing customer relations and combined expertise in lighting applications.

Revenues in the LED segments have grown dynamically in recent years across all brands, and have recently crossed the 50 percent threshold for the first time across the Group.

Brands structured in business divisions

Thorn is an international brand with a focus on reliable performance

The business divisions

The three brands – Thorn, Tridonic and Zumtobel – are organised as business divisions. With the objective of strategically developing their product portfolios, sharpening the brand profiles and offering customers tailored solutions, the business divisions have been assigned product management, development, marketing and quality assurance functions. The heads of the business divisions are responsible for profit and loss as well as for the entire logistics process, from customer specifications to delivery of the finished product.


Thorn is a leading premium-quality supplier of professional indoor and outdoor lighting. The

Thorn brand stands for high-performing, cost-effective and, above all, easy-to-use lighting – including lighting control systems.

Zumtobel Group: Background information


Growth since 1950

The present-day Zumtobel Group originated as Elektrogeräte und Kunstharzpresswerk W.

Zumtobel KG, which was founded in Dornbirn, Austria, in 1950. In the decades that followed, the

Zumtobel family – represented initially by the founder Dr. Walter Zumtobel then by his two sons

Jürg and Fritz Zumtobel – pursued the continuous expansion of the company‘s business, particularly in the German-speaking markets, through a mixture of organic growth and minor acquisitions.

Conversion to joint stock company

From an early stage the Zumtobel organisation was geared to achieving profitable growth. As early as 1976 this family-owned company was converted into a joint stock corporation (Aktiengesellschaft), before in 1991 the two divisions – luminaires and lighting components – were restructured as legally autonomous subgroups.

Acquisition of Staff and Thorn

The 1990s were marked by further growth: Key milestones during this period were the acquisition of the German luminaire manufacturer Staff in 1994/96 and the takeover of the UK-based Thorn

Lighting Group in 2000. These steps enabled the Zumtobel Group to almost double its revenues, as well as strategically enhancing its market presence.

LED lighting ushers in new era

The new millennium brought the beginning of a new era for the Zumtobel Group, as LED technology was first used in smaller areas of application and then throughout the professional lighting industry. As early as 2001, Tridonic in Jennersdorf began development and production of

LED components and modules. Today the plant serves as a centre of competence for LED technology for the entire Zumtobel Group.

Initial public offering

After decades of expansion that had transformed this former family-owned company into a global player, the next logical step was to obtain a listing on the Vienna Stock Exchange. The Zumtobel

Group’s initial public offering on 12 May 2006 followed the decision of U.S. private equity firm

Kohlberg, Kravis and Roberts (KKR), which had acquired a stake in the Group during the takeover of Thorn Lighting, to sell its shares.

New organisational structure creates synergies

In December 2013 Ulrich Schumacher, the new CEO of the Zumtobel Group, rolled out a new organisational structure which built on synergies and led to improved market cultivation based on a multi-brand approach. Since then, the Thorn and Zumtobel lighting brands have been marketed by a single sales organisation. The Tridonic components subsidiary allows the Zumtobel Group to follow an internal platform strategy, using the same components in Thorn and Zumtobel luminaires.

This maximises synergies in production, sales and development, reduces costs and boosts innovative strength.

Strong foundation for dynamic growth

In 2014/15, an important transitional year for the Zumtobel Group, a strong foundation for profitable growth is being laid. The new culture of brand collaboration has already allowed the Zumtobel

Group to establish a strong market position. Today the Group is focused on expanding its competencies in smart controls and data management, continuing to develop its service portfolio and leveraging innovative business models to drive international growth.

The state-of-the-art Toni-Areal university campus in Zurich was illuminated by Zumtobel. Formerly, the area was one of Europe‘s largest dairy processing plants. In autumn 2014, the 24,435 m²

Toni-Areal was transformed into the new central location of

Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and Zurich University of

Applied Sciences (ZHAW). The light for the contemporary college campus is provided by a modular luminaire system with 5,000 units of Zumtobel‘s TECTON continuous-row lighting system.

Lighting solution:

TECTON continuous-row lighting system

In close cooperation with the design teams of Arup and Zumtobel, the studio of David Chipperfield Architects has developed a lighting concept for the Jumex museum in Mexico City. Specific lighting scenarios for the most varied exhibition situations have been worked out. On the ground floor and the first floor, special

ARCOS LED spotlights were inserted in the ceiling. On the one hand, they facilitate a discreet homogeneous installation, on the other hand they allow for specific illumination of individual areas.

If, in addition, exhibits or three-dimensional objects such as sculptures are illuminated temporarily, it is possible to replace LED downlights with ARCOS luminaires. The respective adjustment of the luminaires is effected through the LUXMATE BASIC lighting management system.

For the new market hall of the Spar supermarket chain in Budapest, Zumtobel has implemented an efficient LED lighting concept. In close cooperation with the architects, Zumtobel has installed an efficient LED lighting solution that merges completely with the interior design and sets the stage for the goods by means of accent lighting. Thanks to the VIVO LED high-performance spotlights and the CARDAN recessed luminaires, the goods are presented to optimum effect. The uniform ambient lighting of the market hall is provided by the TECTON LED continuousrow lighting system. By using LED luminaires, at least 40 percent of energy can be saved, as compared to a conventional lighting solution.
