Ape Labs principles are Chief Executive Officer Julius Schrenk and Chief Engineering Officer Gisbert Mueller. We founded Ape Labs because we love unique lighting gadgets. With our intelligent, battery operated led lights, we want to show that everybody can play and work with professional lights without technical skills. We think it is not necessary to become an expert and spend a lot of money in expensive equipment to have wonderful lighting. Gisbert was one of the chief engineers for a large lighting control manufacturer and developed amazing control systems in that capacity. Julius had many years of apprenticeship in production and in discotheques for the repairing and installing of lights and light designs before he started Ape Labs.

Risks and challenges

Ape Labs (CEO Julius Schrenk & CEO Gisbert Müller) has developed and produced wireless LED-Lights and prototypes since 2008. The products are developed, designed and manufactured in Germany for the highest quality possible. We have some great experience from all our development and production for the event industry and know what’s important in lighting design.
We have established our production capability in Germany to ensure timely manufacturing and to be sure that we can offer a 100% high quality product. If any warranty issues occur, they will be addressed with the first 24 hours after notification.
