Italian marine lighting specialist Cantalupi Lighting has entered into a strategic partnership with Xicato, a US developer of high-tech LED modules based in San Jose, California.

Azzurra Cantalupi, marketing manager at the Italian firm, says the agreement will ensure that Cantalupi’s clientele will have access to the highest quality standard of LED lights available on the market.

“Our company has always been involved in research and development of advanced technologies,” she says. “Through this collaboration we give new shapes to light and we improve its quality and its chromatic performance, in order to exalt lighting and the value it performs in spaces.”

Cantalupi designs and manufactures in-house standard and bespoke lights for more than 300 global yacht-builders each year. The company is internationally present directly or through a selected number of professional distributors.

Xicato is a privately held LED lighting specialist that serves the marine and other market sectors. The company says that more than one million Xicato modules have been installed in just over six years.
