Adding to our roster of product offerings in this category, we have also acquired the product lines of U.S.-based Neidhardt, New Zealand-based David Trubridge, Canadian brand VISO and Italian SLAMP.
“We have always been well known in the industry for our knowledge and offering of indoor, outdoor and lighting control products. As we continue to expand our architectural and decorative offering and in-house design capabilities, we’re excited to be able to consult directly with local architects and interior designers to help them find the perfect fixtures to complement their design vision,” says Paul Hudson, Partner.
