A family business goes their way!

Behind the brand name LEDWORKS Austria GmbH is the father-son team TROGER.

Gerold Troger founded Art Electronics. Together with his son Christopher, he has created an established lighting company with a focus on planning and project engineering from a small trading company for IT & lighting.

Passion for design, architecture and light has been our philosophy for more than 20 years. Vision, innovation and great commitment of the entire LEDWORKS team make LEDWORKS a reliable and competent partner.

Gerold & Christopher Troger, together with our Swiss partner LEXTHO GmbH, have made the LEDWORKS brand into a well-known European manufacturer with the latest technologies and manufacturing methods in the LED sector.

In 2018 the company name Art Electronics was changed to LEDWORKS Austria GmbH and in 2019 we were finally able to move to our newly built company and production building.
