E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

ATM Lighting: These days, the high-quality components like LED module or batteries have their lifetime up to tens of thousands of hours, which is almost 8 years of constant work 24/7. It is why we decided to conduct further development works on housings. Together with Rzeszow University od Technology we have carried out the research and development works consisting in modification of powder paint in the direction of giving them anti-static properties, increasing the hydrophobicity of coatings and resistance to scratches. The recipe was reported to the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland and received a patent marked with the number P.435168. Our own powder paint allows to keep the light fittings clean; the radiators can work properly and the light fittings do not overheat. As a result, intervals between inspections can be extended and precious users’ time and money can be saved. This stands in line with our user-friendly policy. 

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

ATM Lighting: In our assortment you can also find some light fittings with aluminum housing. These ones are recently invented and still under development. The aesthetic design of aluminum light fitting you can find in EXL, EXF and INS series of products. It has been implemented not only to the linear light fixtures but also to the floodlights. Nowadays we are under the certification for industrial floodlight with aluminum housing. This solution has a lot of advantages like less weight and better heat radiation outside of the housing. 

E.E: What estimations do you have for 2023?

ATM Lighting: We hope this year will be better than the previous ones. The sales data from two months of the year are very promising. The pandemic times was a difficult situation for us, but at the same time we were building our new headquarters and factory. Last year we moved in.

Thanks to that, now when the economy is returning to its pre-pandemic state, we are ready for the new challenges.
