Environment & Energy for Tomorrow

AK’s “For Tomorrow 2015” initiative is intended to expand its operations related to “environment and energy,” “residential living” and “healthcare,” with the goal of living in health, comfort and harmony with the natural environment. To help meet this goal, the December 2011 Crystal IS acquisition has become a key element of the “environment and energy for tomorrow” project. It marks AK’s entry into the highly promising UV LED market and provides a foundation for further development in the field of energy-conserving devices.
