About

Brothers-in-law, John Keohane and Paul Martin, decided to work together in 2009 when they spotted that the emerging LED lighting market offered exciting opportunities for innovators and the chance to help companies reduce their carbon footprint.  After a year of R&D, Verde LED was born.

The name Verde LED came about when a Portuguese friend pointed out that Verde means green in many different languages and that seemed like the perfect name considering the global market opportunity and Verde’s international focus.

John, Paul and their growing team of staff, headquartered in Cork, have been working hard to design, manufacture, supply, install and project manage the highest quality LED lighting solutions for all their customers with dedicated R&D, Engineering, Logistics, Marketing, Finance and Sales teams.  Verde LED currently exports to 23 countries.
