LPI was founded in 1999. By then, LPI was applying novel optical design techniques to solid state signaling and lighting. One of the first project highlights was developing the optics for a revolutionary LED rear combination lamp for the Caddilac SRX. Since then, we have filed more than 100 patents and worked in more than 150 projects. LPI is global since the start: the original founders were in the U.S. and Spain, where the main business leads and technical resources were available, respectively, and found the required additional capital investments in hong-Kong, where a high precision optics manufacturing firm (LPIPO) was established in 2002 to complement LPI design services. The three locations have been smoothly running ever since.
