Cree is leading the LED lighting revolution and making energy-wasting traditional lighting technologies obsolete through the use of energy-efficient LEDs.
At Cree, we’re always on. We believe that meaningful change happens through sheer force of will and the determination of a team solving a problem, and we’re unafraid to kick down the door to make it happen. That’s how we inspired the LED revolution and continue to create brilliantly affordable, radically simple, uncompromisingly efficient solutions that transform the way we experience the world. From superior-performance LEDs, to lighting intelligence that facilitates the connection of the human race and wide band gap technology that enables the electrification of the world, , our mission isn’t just to cultivate a thriving business – it’s to relentlessly pursue disruptive technologies that change industries. And we don’t take no for an answer.
We are also home to Wolfspeed, which has nearly 30-year history as part of Cree Inc. and is building the future with market-leading wide bandgap semiconductor products for the transportation, industrial and electronics, energy and communications markets. From young and ambitious roots in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, we have grown into a world-renowned, commercial supplier of the fastest, most efficient semiconductor components ever available, enabling greater efficiency and performance, smaller systems and lower costs.
Our growing multi-billion dollar start-up is impressing the biggest names in tech. We're one of Fast Company’s The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies 2015 and a 2014 MIT Technology Review “50 Smartest Company.” Let’s revolutionize energy efficiency and transform the way we experience the world.
