Magna Electronics and Rohinni have formed a joint venture to produce ultra-thin micro LED lighting solutions .
The Magna-controlled joint venture, Magna Rohinni Automotive, combines the Canadian's electronics manufacturing with use of Rohinni's lighting technology in mobility industries. The joint venture will be based in Holly, Michigan.
Rohinni's thin-film micro and mini LEDs can be utilised for almost any application, which creates new possibilities for design and product differentiation. Additionally, the company has developed technology to place micro LEDs onto a substrate surface to support high-volume production.
"Magna brings a global brand and reach, along with many years of automotive market and applications experience to this partnership," said Rohinni CEO, Matthew Gerber.
Magna has also made a minority equity investment in Rohinni based on the application of its micro and mini LED technology in a range of other industries, applications and products.
"This joint venture with Rohinni brings thin, flexible lighting technology that mobility has not seen before," said Magna CTO, Swamy Kotagiri.
"Current automakers, new mobility companies, other lighting suppliers, and Magna's own product groups all stand to benefit from this collaboration."
