Our Story


Lightking Outdoor is the North American joint venture partner of Lightking Tech Group, focusing on premium outdoor full color LED displays. Working together for the past 5 years, the partners have developed a world-class modular high resolution product line with millions in inventory in facilities in Florida and California. Lightking Outdoor also has a strong US technical support team and competitive pricing.

LightKing Tech Group Co., Ltd, founded in 2004, is a high technology enterprise and one of the pioneers in LED lamp technology. With LED lamp encapsulation and LED module manufacturing facilities in Shenzhen, Lightking Tech Group now sells and operates in over 100 countries. Its CEO Zeming Qi, is one of the pioneers of LED lamp technology for displays. A graduate of the prestigious Beijing University, known as the Harvard and MIT of China combined, Mr. Qi began working on LED lamps in 1995 and has been at the forefront of full color LED display technology ever since.

Lightking specializes in the R&D and fabrication of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). After years of product development and growth, the group now has more than 300,000 square feet of manufacturing facilities and nearly 1000 employees. Its new factory opening in 2016 to accommodate growth in various parts of the world including the US has over 1,000,000 square feet of manufacturing space, the largest global LED display plant under one roof. The main product lines include indoor full color LED displays, outdoor full color LED displays and LED lighting products.

Lightking uses state of the art equipment including ASM encapsulation, wave-peak soldering, hot air reflow soldering, SMD, and automatic DIP assembly machines.  Moreover, it has an independent R&D department and QC department, which further enhances the quality of its products. Working together with Lightking Outdoor engineers, this team has re-designed factory equipment and processes and has invented cutting-edge electronic components to develop the world’s highest brightness lamps, highest efficiency power supplies and lightest weight cabinets for the US market.

Lightking Outdoor is the successor company to Modern Display, a leading South Florida sign company since 1967. Modern Display was acquired by Timur Colak in 2007 with the intent of rapidly growing in the retail LED display market. Frustrated by the lack of a high quality product at a reasonable price, Mr. Colak leveraged 20 years of international management consulting experience to create Lightking Outdoor, now a leading LED solutions provider to sign and outdoor advertising companies. Lightking Outdoor continues to grow quickly via strategic partners throughout the US, Canada and the Caribbean. Its strategic partners add value to Lightking Outdoor’s modular products in areas such as assembly, signage additions and embellishments around the LED cabinets, permitting, installation, customer training, local service and specialized technical support. Lightking Outdoor designs, engineers, assembles and supports its products in the USA.
