It started with golf
It all started when one of the company’s founders was out playing golf. He needed something that could help him to find lost golf balls. He discussed this with an old friend that was an expert on surface treatment and microwave technology, and came up with an answer. The idea was to use a special surface treatment on the golf balls and then to locate them with a small radar device kept in the golfer’s bag. After looking into the financials it was decided however that the device would be too expensive to produce.
The surface treatment concept was too good to pass up though, so we pursued other more lucrative applications. Based on properties such as extremely good heat conductivity and electrical isolation, the electronics cooling application was identified as a particularly interesting market. It turned into a material of our own, Alunat, which was our first business focus and thus, the foundation of the company Aluwave.
However, our potential customers turned out to be interested in LED solutions. That’s when Aluwave entered the journey to become a leading provider of customized LED solutions, meeting the unique need of each and every customer. Today, our offering includes all necessary parts, from LED modules to complete fixtures and lighting systems.
