(Germany) – Glamox has acquired 100% of the shares in German lighting company Wasco. Located in Lower Saxony, Germany, Wasco specialises in continuous line luminaires.

“The acquisition of Wasco will strengthen our lighting solutions offering for logistics buildings and warehouses,” said Rune Marthinussen, CEO of Glamox. “Glamox will support Wasco’s product development strategy and we look forward to offer these innovative products to all our customers globally. Wasco will remain an independent, wholly owned subsidiary within the Glamox Group, welcoming customers both inside and outside the Glamox Group.”

The growth in eCommerce has led to an increased demand for warehouses; Wasco has proven lighting solutions that are in particular suitable for such warehouses, and highly valued by its customers. Its solutions significantly reduce product cost and installation cost compared to conventional continuous lighting systems.

Wasco founder Friedrich Habben is enthusiastic about the new opportunity: “Glamox is a very solid international lighting company with a focus on engineering and quality. Together we allow customers worldwide to discover our Wasco products and strengthen our ability to develop new lighting solutions for the future.”
