They bring knowledge and experience of local markets and networks -- and together with our LED fixture expertise -- will enable us to choose the right distribution channels and be closer to the specifier so we can add value to our clients."

This agreement will also ensure that distributors and agents in the region will continue to receive the most competitive Lumenpulse pricing available.

"We created Lightitude to be an impartial specification partner for the new age of lighting companies," said Ziad Debbas, Vice President Lighting at Lightitude parent company Debbas Group.
