Acuity Brands recently acquired Minnesota-based Winona Lighting, Inc., a premier provider of architectural and high-performance indoor and outdoor lighting products. Winona Lighting serves the commercial, retail, and institutional markets with a product portfolio of high-quality and design-oriented luminaires suitable for decorative, custom, asymmetric, and landscape lighting applications. Winona Lighting provides many of these products utilizing the latest LED technology for superior performance, long-life and energy-savings. Winona Lighting continues operations in its existing Minnesota facility.
“The acquisition of Winona Lighting strengthens our presence with the design community while providing opportunities to further leverage our capabilities and broad market access across their entire product portfolio,” Vernon J. Nagel, chairman, president and CEO of Acuity Brands, said after the announcement in October. “This includes the integration of design with advanced new technologies such as performance optics, solid-state lighting and lighting controls.”
Founded in 1960, Winona Lighting grew from a stained-glass heritage to one of the industry leaders in architectural and performance lighting products. Winona Lighting provides one of the widest ranges of styles and designs to complement any application, indoor or outdoor. The company is known in the marketplace for modified standard products allowing customers to mix and match standard components that meet their lighting and design needs.
