Fagerhult Group chooses HiQ as establishing partner to OR Technologies

OR Technologies, part of the Fagerhult Group, chooses HiQ as its strategic partner for establishing a new centre of excellence and development in Linköping. The centre will continue to develop Organic Response, the company’s platform for smart lighting.

“It’s very exciting to help Fagerhult Group and OR Technologies get established in Linköping and we look forward to helping develop smart solutions for the intelligent offices and buildings of the future,” says Patrik Holm, Managing Director at HiQ in Linköping.

The centre of excellence in Linköping is an important part of Fagerhult Group’s long-term ambition to offer world-class solutions for smart and sustainable lighting. The focus of the centre of excellence and the collaboration with HiQ is to further develop OR Technologies’ Organic Response platform – an integrated system for controlling and monitoring the smart lighting solutions of the future. The system uses distributed intelligence to control lighting in a climate-smart manner based on physical presence. 

HiQ will support the company during the establishment phase to ensure a fast and successful start. That means delivering both strategic guidance and expertise in areas like project management, system and software development, IoT and systems integration.

“Fast-paced development is crucial to taking advantage of the opportunities presented by smart lighting control solutions. With HiQ as a partner, we’ll get a head start and quickly gear up our operations in Linköping. With their previous start-up record and experience with IoT, I’m convinced that it will be a success”, says Dean Campbell-Smith at OR Technologies.

“Fagerhult Group is a leader in smart lighting and with us as a partner, I’m sure we’ll consolidate their position. I’m really looking forward to this collaboration, which will also expand our experience in PropTech and smart buildings,” says Patrik Holm, MD of HiQ in Linköping.

 

Fagerhult Group is one of Europe’s leading lighting businesses with 4,700 employees in 28 countries. The company has 13 strong brands that all provide high-quality, professional lighting solutions for a variety of uses. 

OR Technologies is a company in the Fagerhult Group. Since 2011, it has focussed on creating lighting control systems based on user friendliness and ease of installation. The company’s products and Organic Response platform come with lighting solutions from the Group’s various brands.
