    Padang, Indonesia – Philips Lighting Indonesia, leader in the lighting industry, opens its fifth store in Sumatera and brings its lighting solutions closer to the people of Padang, West Sumatera. Featuring a one-stop-shopping experience and expert advice on Philips home and business lighting solutions, Philips Lighting stays committed to being present in major cities across the country.


    The capital city of West Sumatera, Padang is also the fifth largest city in Sumatera after Medan, Batam, Palembang and Pekanbaru. With economic growth reaching 0,20%[1] per year in retail and tourism, the city has attracted major property developers to invest more in the area. “We see Padang as one of the fastest growing cities in Indonesia with flourishing property developments.  Philips sees a big opportunity to bring lighting solutions closer to the consumer here,” said Chandra Vaidyanathan, Senior Vice President & Country Manager for Philips Lighting Indonesia.


    In this gallery, Philips implements a clean, attractive and modern appearance. As well as using simple colors as background, the display areas neatly arrange the various lighting fixtures by function and application, making it easier for residential or commercial customers to visualize the many innovative possibilities Philips offers. Customers can also consult directly with lighting experts about which products provide the best solutions to their needs by bringing in their basic lighting plans or blueprints for consultation and recommendations.


    The Philips Home Lighting Store has more than 200 product variants available in a wide variety of styles and designs to inspire the customers, from homeowners who are looking to improve the atmosphere in their homes, to business-owners hoping to enhance their facilities, all through innovative lighting solutions. Most of the product variants are compatible or integrated with LED; known for its benefits of energy saving, cost efficiency that significantly reduced electricity consumption and therefore lower the electricity bill, and environmental friendly. Converting to LED lighting may help the city of Padang who has been experiencing blackouts regularly until the end of the year[2].


    “People now realize how lighting plays an important role in their home or offices. And in this economic situation, they need lighting that not only illuminating and beautifying a space, blending harmoniously with both exterior and interior decoration, but also saving on electricity consumption,” explains Chandra. “At Philips, we continue to transform the way we use light to personalize our spaces and bring different experiences to each room.”
