Annual report

of Capital Group LUG S.A.


LUG in 2015


New factory of the LUG S.A. Capital Group

At the turn of 2015 and 2016 the investment process was completed and the second factory of the LUG S.A. Capital Group was launched. The new factory is entirely devoted to the production of lighting solutions in LED technology.

The new facility, located in the Lubuskie Industrial and Technology Park in Zielona Góra, hosts the research and development centre and a complex of modern electronic production floors. Owing to the grouping of these two units in one place, the solutions developed by the research and development department will be quickly and effectively implemented in the LUG and FLASH DQ brand products.

Ultimately, the new research and production facility of the Company will house approx. 100 employees. The value of the entire investment project, implemented in the “design and build” formula, amounted to PLN 7.2 million. Possible further expenditures on the expansion of the machinery park in the new factory in 2016 are estimated at approx. PLN 4 million, but their implementation is conditional upon a favourable economic situation and satisfying financial results.

Development strategy

Development strategy.pdfadd to clipboard

Issuer's development directions for 2013 and consecutive years have been presented in Grupa Kapitałowa LUG S.A. Strategy, published with operational EBI report 15/2013 on April 4th, 2013

The imperative strategic goal of Grupa Kapitałowa LUG S.A. for years 2013-2016 is development in accordance with the ideal of energy eficiency and CO2 emission reduction.

This goal is being fulfilled based on 5 primary areas, that are strategic fundaments.

  • Business model

  • R&D

  • Markets and segments

  • Product

  • Technology

The aesthetic values of semiconductor lighting (LED and OLED) and a nearly unlimited design freedom contribute to the separation of new business and trade models. The model being developed by the LUG S.A. Capital Group comprises consultation and sales centres functioning on the most promising markets of the Issuer’s operations, in particular: Germany, France, the UK, the Middle East, Brazil, Russia and Poland. Competences developed in the consultation and sales centres will support the trend of departing from simple sales of fixtures and moving towards rendering comprehensive consultation and sales services.

The key role in this strategy will be played by the Development Department, Laboratory, Electronic Department and Flash DQ Department, established on the strong foundations of lighting, electronic and design knowledge. The synergy of youth and experience combined with competences built by the team of employees, together with modern photo-optic and lighting technique tools, determine the competitive advantage of the Issuer.

The strategic markets of the LUG S.A. Capital Group are divided into the following areas: Poland, Europe, Russia and Brazil. Development impulses in the lighting sector, identified by the Management Board of LUG S.A., enabled the following objectives to be adopted: an increase in consolidated revenues from exports at the level of 100 per cent and an increase in consolidated revenues from domestic sales at the level of 30 per cent by 2016. Besides, two additional objectives were set for the Brazilian subsidiary company: development of the sales structure and achieving the profitability threshold in 2014-2016.

The key product in the development of the LUG S.A. Capital Group will be lighting fixtures and systems based on LED technology. Further development of the LED products will be the implementation priority of the R&D Department. Their share in the sales structure in 2016 should reach at least 40 per cent.

Two priorities were established in the “Technology” area, which will determine the development of the Company in 2013-2016. The first pertained to the extension of the existing factory and launching of a new production line for SMD assembly. This investment was completed in 2013 and its total cost was PLN 2.19 million. The second priority is the construction of the new production plant, which is valued at PLN 6 million. The first stage of the investment, namely the construction of the production and warehousing part, commenced in November 2014. This stage was completed according to plan, in mid-2015. The next stage will involve the construction of administrative facilities.


The Company offers a full range of solutions dedicated to lighting the interiors of buildings and external areas for commercial, industrial and architectural use. The assortment currently covers over 600 diverse kinds of luminaires.

The Company’s portfolio comprises 3 product brands.

Light shapes working and living conditions. It influences emotions, moods, perception and productivity. It can stimulate and inspire, and therefore properly selected lighting is a key factor.

LUG brand

LUG brand products are lighting solutions for each kind of building. They come into being through a synergy of innovativeness, functionality, energy-saving and design. The well developed customisation section enables standard versions of top-class lighting products to be adapted to customers’ unique needs. The Company’s own possibilities of producing LED light sources enable untypical solutions to be created on the basis of this energy-saving technology.
