Verbatim - Technology you can trust

From its foundation in 1969, the Verbatim brand has been at the forefront of technological innovation. In its early years, Verbatim focused on data storage and remains one of the most recognisable and respected brands in the industry. The company has a strong reputation as a trusted global supplier providing quality products backed up by fast and reliable service and support.


Mitsubishi ownership

In 2010, Verbatim entered the lighting industry and married Mitsubishi Chemical’s 50 years of experience in developing lighting materials with its own extensive global sales and marketing network. Verbatim LEDs utilize unique technology developed by the Mitsubishi Chemical Group, including innovative optics, patented thermal management and knowledge of key materials to create high quality lighting solutions.

The result is a wide range of high quality LED lamps for professionals and consumers and an expanding portfolio of LED luminaires for daily use. Verbatim’s products are designed to offer a high level of visual comfort, exceptional long term reliability and serve a broad range of applications.

Verbatim is deeply committed to serving its customers and continuing to develop market leading innovative solutions by incorporating unique technology developed by its parent company, Mitsubishi Chemical.
