As a company, we take extreme pride in our Founder & CEO Ekamdeep Singh getting featured in LEDs Magazine 40 Under 40 Class of 2020, for his outstanding contribution to the LED and SSL industry.
Singh, like any other entrepreneur had a modest start in 2014 in the US and just over a span of six years he has taken IKIO to new heights. His constant urge to innovate and invest in R&D has led the company to introduce some breakthrough products in the market – a High Bay Light with 200 lumens per watt was one such milestone. Until then, the industry average was around 170-180 lumens per watt. IKIO under Singh’s leadership managed to develop a truly 200 lumens per watt product, which signifies lesser energy consumption while giving more light output. Stressing further upon company’s R&D capabilities he makes a special mention of his new brand Axenic-UV saying, “The brand caters to highly technological disinfection & detection solutions. We could launch this brand during these tough times only because of our strong R&D background and a proactive approach.”
IKIO was also featured in Inc.5000’s annual list of Midwest’s fastest growing companies. “I must say these achievements have helped in increasing our credibility in the market and we as a team strive to achieve many more in our journey ahead,” says Singh enthusiastically. He’s not the one to shy away from giving the entire credit to his team that according to him is his biggest strength.
“I thank LEDs Magazine for this recognition. It feels great to be placed amongst such phenomenal talent. A special thanks to my team who has been constantly working with me in bringing about a change in the LED industry. It encourages us to keep innovating and to keep working hard as this is just the beginning,” says Singh while modestly accepting the recognition.
For some, when achievements come galore they push themselves to work even harder & reach new heights and our CEO is certainly one of them.
