5 Big Questions:  Current & Future Lighting Growth

We catch up with Manish Bhandari, President & CEO at GE Current, a Daintree company to learn more about how the company is evolving post-General Electric.  We also learn insights about Current's strategies relating to acquisitions, product categories and supply chain.


Topics we explore:

  1. Now that the company has been spun off from the General Electric mothership for 2+ years, how is Current redefining itself for today and for the future?  (1:00)

  2. All lighting manufacturers seem to be facing serious challenges relating to component availability, lead times, price increases and shipping logistics.  Why should customers have faith that Current will deliver as promised during these challenging times?  (4:28)

  3. The changing dynamics of the lamp business is speculated to be one of the major reasons why GE, Philips and OSRAM exited the business in recent years.  How is Current performing in the lamp segment and how important is it to your long-term growth?  (8:15)

  4. It's been about 4 months since Current acquired Forum Lighting.  How is the marketplace reacting to the news?  (9:40)

  5. What product categories are being targeted by Current for future company acquisitions?  (12:00)
