DMS Lighting was founded by a small group of engineers who cut their teeth, so to speak, in the LED lighting arena, by being the original designers and founders of Epilight Technology Co., the co-founders of Optiled, Light Prescription Innovators and LPI Precision Optics.This team, envisioned the potential growth and importance in the global market of energy efficient LED based light sources and decided to strike out on their own to found a company that would be dedicated to developing and marketing their own ideas and concepts for LED lighting. Using their contacts in the industry, and armed with their knowledge of optics, tool making and manufacturing they embarked on an exciting journey of product creation that first led them into the world of specialty industrial lighting and lighting control systems.
Today, DMS Lighting currently operates offices in North America, South East Asia and Japan. DMS has its production facilities in China and its engineering group based in Hong Kong. DMS Lighting's designers have worked together for over 20+ years and have been one of the driving forces behind the realization of high efficiency LED lighting products.
