World leader in lighting, Signify has completed the acquisition of Pierlite from Australian-based Gerard Lighting Group, strengthening its position in the Australian and New Zealand lighting markets.

Signify’s existing array of professional lighting brands includes Philips, Interact, Dynalite and Color Kinetics.

“We’re delighted to welcome the Pierlite team into the Signify family. This union brings together the strong R&D and innovation capabilities of a global leader with the expertise and 70-year legacy of a respected local brand,” Signify CEO Pacific Market, David Gardner said.

Combining Pierlite’s indoor portfolio for the healthcare, education, commercial and industrial building segments with the Philips brand of indoor and outdoor portfolios, creates a substantial breadth of offer and market coverage in the Pacific region.

Customers will be able to capitalise on synergies between Pierlite’s luminaire families and Signify’s Dynalite and Interact connected lighting solutions.
