The company acquires LED luminaire products from Aphos Lighting.

| November 7, 2012

EYE Lighting International of North America announced today it has acquired all assets related to the LED luminaire products from Aphos Lighting of Carrollton, Texas. The purchase price was not disclosed. EYE will assume production of Aphos brand LED luminaires in its own facility and market the products under the EYE Lighting brand name.

Tom Salpietra, president and chief operating officer of EYE said, “Along with our fast-growing kíaroLED outdoor LED luminaire family, the Aphos product line creates greater scale for our business and strengthens our position and penetration in the fast-growing LED market.” EYE Lighting entered the LED luminaire market in 2011 with the introduction of kíaroLED, which has since earned a number of awards and accolades in the lighting industry.

“EYE has a global reputation for high performance HID lamps and architectural luminaires in the Urban Act™ family, and we are proud of the innovations and new technology we bring to lamp and luminaire systems,” Salpietra added. “Aphos, combined with kíaroLED, Urban Act, and our Pure White Ceramic Metal Halide lamps, provides the specification and utility-municipal lighting markets with outstanding choices for energy-saving and maintenance-friendly lighting solutions.”
