E.L.K. Lighting Acquires Outdoor Lighting Company

NESQUEHONING, Pa.-E.L.K. Lighting has acquired certain assets of outdoor lighting company Artistic Lighting and Design, LLC. The purchase, finalized May 9, was made through E.L.K.'s sister corporation, Mount Summit Lighting Inc.

The Artistic line will greatly expand the outdoor product category available from the E.L.K. Lighting group of companies. Artistic is also one of the few remaining suppliers of solid brass outdoor lanterns in the industry. Artistic's operations will be consolidated into E.L.K.'s facilities here, where dedicated customer service and project coordinators have been established.

"I am thrilled for customers who will benefit from new designs, improved inventory levels and flexibility to combine deliveries with our other brands for greater cost savings," said Bradford Smith CEO, E.L.K. Lighting. "The combined expertise and resources of both entities will establish us as the industry's premier outdoor lighting provider."

E.L.K.'s last acquisition was Sterling Industries in September 2010.
