Phoenix Lighting acquires Bright Light Systems

(Posted on 26/02/19)

Phoenix Lighting, a portfolio company of JMC Capital Partners, has announced the acquisition of Bright Light Systems, Inc. - a Georgia-based company with a strong product line, a well-developed lighting controls system and numerous installations worldwide.

Phoenix is the leader in industrial, rugged lighting.

This acquisition strengthens the capabilities of Phoenix to support its port and terminals markets. With expanded in-house expertise, Phoenix can combine its lighting products with a specialized lighting control and monitoring system to bring superior efficiency and performance.

Scott Fredrick, CEO of Phoenix declares, “We are excited about the acquisition and partnership with the Bright Light team. They will be a great addition to our Company and product offering.”

Brad Lurie, CEO of Bright Light Systems, who will now manage Phoenix’s new Controls Division states, “Our best-in-class controls platform combined with Phoenix’s industry knowledge and lighting expertise make this a perfect acquisition.”

Ryan Hertel, Managing Director for Ports & Maritime, describes the impact. “Our customers are enthusiastic about this announcement as it follows the industry-wide demands for increased performance data and intelligence on the equipment critical to supporting operations.”

Dave Logan, JMC Operating Partner adds, “We are excited about the possibilities that this acquisition brings, leveraging Phoenix’s strengths in rugged industrial design with new technology and products.”

Originally founded in 1892, Phoenix has evolved alongside the city of Milwaukee and is still proud to call it home. Over 126 years later, Phoenix Lighting continues to be a leading manufacturer of high quality, durable light fixtures built to withstand even the harshest of conditions.
