RN Solutions was founded in 2013/2014. The business idea came when farmer, Rune Nielsen, was traveling abroad. He found out that a few places in Europe, luminate sows in the service/gestation section, and how much this improved the reproduction of the sows.
Rune Nielsen was sure this could be done easier and more efficient. Therefore, he devised a solution with his experiences as farmer and approach to productivity versus investment. Rune knew that the investment should be earned back quickly. At the same time the products should be simple and durable. As a result, Rune, via his network in Asia, created a solution with LED luminaires, which could easily be mounted via special connectors and directly on the stalls. The light was now placed at the head of the sows. The farmer himself or the electrician should be able to install the product very easily.
The product SOW-Light quickly became popular and widespread in Denmark. Not through advertisements, but through Pig managements consultants and veterinarians, who saw the improvements in the reproduction of sows.
The idea that the farmer should be able to mount the light fixtures themselves, even with a Plug´N Play™ cable, was so appealing to the farmers, that the concept quickly developed into other parts of pig farm productions. Furthermore, it also developed into dairy farms and milking parlors, poultry farms and other industries such as: car lifts, workshops and lights for construction sites, scaffolding, etc.
In order to ensure consistent quality and stable production, as well as rapid development of new products, RN Solutions established their own production in China in 2017. Designed and developed in Denmark, but produced with the reduced costs and the great know-how they have in Asia, when talking about light and LED products.
Today, RN Solutions sell their light concepts to more than 20 countries worldwide. In most of these countries, a great retail network has been established. The SOW-Light concept now luminates around 1,000,000 sows worldwide.
In the beginning we produced other “inventions” for the pig production as well, however today we mainly focus on lighting products.
New unique light products have been added, and they all have these things in common: durability, good light, easy to assemble and reasonable prices.
In addition, most products can be used in “though” environments such as farm/animal houses. They withstands high impact of ammonia, chemicals, dust, moisture, etc. The products are also very cleaning-friendly (waterproof IP66 / 67/69K), and therefore, also very suitable for the food industry, car and truck wash etc.
RN Solutions supply directly to farmers / customers, but also through electricians and resellers. The range consists of light products installed by Plug´N Play™, but also for fixed installations, which must be carried out by a professional.
RN Solutions products are approved / certified for sale throughout Europe (CE / D marking), but also the extensive certifications in China (CCC) and North America (UL / ETL).
