Driven by the idea and sparked by the belief that "Everyone has the right to good light at home," especially during the lockdown due to COVID-19, our vision materialized into a market-ready product by 2022, named inio one. For us at REHAU New Ventures, inio is more than a product, the team actually turned a smart concept into a series-ready sensation at warp speed. Still being convinced that Human Centric Light is a very interesting field to innovate in, we however decided in 2023 to sell the business and to stop the New Ventures activities. Our decision was mainly influenced by the belief that New Ventures will not be the right place to develop and scale the inio business further.
However, the industry somehow agreed that Human Centric Light is are very interesting area and so we were able to sell our first venture to an external investor who literally fall in love with the product and will now continue to sell inio lamps to the outside world.
The new owner, the Landwehr + Schultz Trafo GmbH is a well established player within the area of electronics and it is great to see how innovative a traditional company can be. Tune in to get a statement from Daniel Peplau, Managing Director of Landwehr + Schultz Trafo GmbH speaking about the inio deal and his vision:
