Vincenzo Reda founds Universal Science in Italy.


Purchase of the first machine with SMT technology for prototypes and limited series.


New offices and production plant in pregnana milanese (MI), including the first fully automated SMT line.


The production plant is reinforced by a second automated SMT line.


Universal Science creates a new brand: RED - integrating lighting technologies.


Enhancement of the technical department, both in terms of engineers and software (solidworks and altium).


New in-house laboratory with innovative tools and specialised equipment (3D printer for rapid prototyping)


The production plant is strengthened by a third SMT line and a new X-ray line

Focus and Collaboration

The activity of Universal Science in Italy was born with a clear focus: to realize, use and propose LED modules in the lighting field. We have therefore immediately started collaborating with important companies in the sector, sharing, thanks to the use of specialists, our approach and expertise in the field of LEDs and electronics.

A global market par excellence

The history and path of our company have followed the development of LEDs over the years, from the first low efficiency LEDs that could be used in specific applications to a few years ago, when LEDs, now capable of being applied to the most diverse sectors, surpassed and outclassed all other light emission sources, becoming one of the global markets par excellence.


Over the years we have experienced on our skin the enormous transformation of the lighting market: many external investors have followed one another, the percentages and weights of the reference companies have changed and new operators have entered the field, most of them of electronic derivation. Competitors have also grown over time and we have always adapted and evolved accordingly. As a technological sector, in fact, there is never a point of arrival, but a continuous evolution.

New applications and new opportunities

Our work has been and still is an operation of continuous adjustment and consolidation of the structure, of research for new applications and new fields of application. In this regard, we are gradually entering the field of horticulture. There are many advantages to LED lighting in this sector. Among them: the low energy consumption, and therefore the saving of running costs, the drastic reduction of the heat produced by the lighting source and the wider and more easily adaptable spectral emission to the different types of cultivated product and its growth phases.
The peculiarities of LED and the flexibility of its use allow to extend its use also in the medical field, in drying inks for printing systems, in air and water purification and in solar simulators for industrial test systems.
