SEE THE LIGHT
We are passionate about the fascinating medium of light. XAL has fo-cused on the medium in all its diversity, on its optimum adaptation to user re-quirements and on continual endeavours to roll back the borders of what is technically possible. The results are our aesthetic and functionally outstand-ing lighting solutions which can be perfectly integrated into all kinds of indoor and outdoor contexts. In a dynamic environment with highest requirements we offer the necessary process quality, flexibility and internationality to de-velop sustainable concepts that go far beyond short-lived trends. Our re-sources in the field of Research and Development make it possible to de-velop innovative LED-luminaires so that we are one step ahead of our com-petitors. Thanks to our efficiency in organization and extraordinary in-house vertical integration in manufacturing we are able to create customized solu-tions and individual products that meet the particular needs of lighting de-signers. This results in functional, efficient luminaires, that are completed only by our high design orientation. Top-class juries worldwide appreciate this by annually awarding international design prizes to the stylish XAL-prod-ucts. See the Light.
We can look back on over 25 years of experience in the development of high-quality luminaires. We began working with LED technology while others were still waiting to see where it would go. We have been manufac-turing innovative LED luminaires since 2003 and are playing an active role in refining the technology. We invest around 7 per cent of our revenue in re-search and development so that we can offer our customers even better, more energy efficient, and higher quality products. XALcc at our Graz head-quarters gives us access to a unique competence centre. It offers 80 techni-cians, product managers, and engineers state-of-the-art working and meet-ing zones and is equipped with cutting-edge light laboratories. Here, the materials and functions of the LED luminaires are put through their paces. The tests range from electromagnetic compatibility in the EMC chamber and extreme temperatures in the climate cabinet to corrosion resistance in the salt spray chamber. We work at the highest technical level and leave absolutely nothing to chance at any stage of the production process. From circuit board and software development to temperature and light control simulations and circuit board production on the SMD pick-and-place sys-tem, all relevant processes are located in our in-house manufacturing plant. LED technology that you can trust.
It is our objective to develop lighting solutions, which are extraordinary in terms of energy efficiency, functionality and design. For that, technical competence and intelligent innovation are just as important as first-class know-how in production and design. These competences enable us to respond very flexibly to our customers’ requirements and also realise specially tailored LED-solutions in an extremely short time.
We as a company see ourselves as part of a larger whole, which we are committed to. We believe that investment in our employees is an substantial contribution to the social responsibility.
Each year we are training an extraordinarily high number of apprentices and provide a modern working environment. We support social facilities, so that they are able to render their valuable work. We also attach particular importance to environmental and climate protection: we produce where the majority of our customers are – in Europe and the USA. Thus we cut delivery times and routes of transportation. We have successfully managed to produce nearly free of emissions.
The headquarters in Graz is heated with zero-emission geothermal energy and completely illuminated with LEDs. All our research and development is designed for energy efficient and sustainable lighting solutions. More quality of life by means of better light.
