(USA) – Acquisition gives Lightly Technologies more global accessibility and route to US market.
In an effort to achieve new designs in decorative lighting, Aamsco has acquired Lightly Technologies, creator of the Hikari SQ edge-lit LED panel.
Developed in 2016, Lightly Technologies founder and mechanical engineer Matt Hanbury worked on both OLED lighting and LCD smartphone displays. Combining his knowledge of these two sectors, he developed the Hikari SQ edge-lit LED panel, an ultra-thin light source with the appearance and design benefits of OLED lighting, but with the performance of LED technology.
Following the acquisition, the Lightly Technologies brand will be given more global accessibility, with strategic marketing in the US. The acquisition will also allow Aamsco Lighting to offer unique, ultra-thin lighting design, utilising both OLED and LED edge-lit panels.
Aamsco Lighting has been providing lighting solutions for companies around the world out of its factory in Summerville, SC since 1982. Its range, extending from miniature lamps to special fluorescents of all sizes, to the latest in LED technology, is suitable for a wide selection of industries, from commercial and hospitality to retail and residential.
