DW Windsor acquires Pulsar

(UK) – Pulsar to remain independent brand under parent company DW Windsor.

As a result of an asset purchase agreement (APA), DW Windsor has acquired Pulsar, expanding its façade and floodlighting portfolio with a complementary range of wall washing/grazing luminaires and control systems; capturing growth within the public realm markets and expanding upon international business opportunities.

Terry Dean, CEO and Group Chairman of DW Windsor, said of the acquisition: “Creative and experience lighting are exciting growth markets; the acquisition of the Pulsar brand was therefore a logical step in the evolution of the Group – which includes DW Windsor and IoT specialist Urban Control.

“We have big plans for the rejuvenation of the Pulsar brand. The APA strengthens our wider portfolio and demonstrates our commitment to providing lighting that enhances our public realm.

“We believe the union of brands offers our specifiers a comprehensive toolkit of professional lighting solutions suitable for a wide variety of applications, both within the UK and internationally.”

Founded in 1966, Pulsar has a long history in architectural lighting, and is best known for international projects such as the World Trade Centre in Bahrain (pictured).

Both manufacturing facilities, DW Windsor in Hertfordshire, and Pulsar in Cambridgeshire, will continue to operate under the agreement, and Pulsar will remain an independent brand under the parent company.
