Aura Light participates in Swedish State Visit to Finland

The Swedish lighting company Aura Light has been invited to participate in the business delegation in conjunction with the Swedish State Visit to Finland. The visit will take place March 3-4 at the invitation of President Sauli Niinistös.

The two Swedish ministers; Secretary of State Margot Wallström and Minister of Education Gustav Fridolin, will participate at the State Visit with King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. The State Visit includes discussions around digitalization of traditional industries, introduction to the Finnish start-up world and education matters.

Aura Light’s CEO, Martin Malmros, will be participating at the State Visit. The company has achieved important successes in Finland with big customers like Kesko, Kauppakeskus Veturi, Finnair and Danske Bank. The company has also recently received the “2015 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award” based on a recent analysis of the lighting market made by the global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan.

– We are very honored to be a part of the State Visit to Finland and share our experiences on how the lighting industry is affected by the technology shifts. Aura Light is currently going through an exciting transformation where we now offer smart lighting solutions. This is also a great opportunity for us to build strong trade relations with our neighboring country and to present Aura Light as a sustainable and innovative company, says Martin Malmros, CEO Aura Light International AB.

The Nordic countries are Aura Light’s strongest region and the company has recently acquired the Swedish luminaire company, Zobra. This acquisition is an important step for the company to become a complete supplier of energy efficient lighting solutions. Aura Light is also growing twice as fast as the rest of the lighting industry, which is a true confirmation of the increasing demand for innovative and sustainable lighting solutions.
