Lutron is the leader in the lighting control industry and offers a wide selection of energy saving dimmers and lighting control solutions. Recently, they have taken over smart LED Company Ketra. According to Lutron, the acquisition is a “natural extension” of its existing smart accessory segment.
Ketra was founded in Austin, Texas back in 2009 with the main purpose of creating customizable lighting and control systems for everyone. The company boasts that it creates the “highest quality and most accurate natural light and integrated control system” which is around.
Ed Blair, Lutron, senior vice-president, said it was a natural extension for Lutron to expand its product portfolio with Ketra light sources and controls. “This acquisition allows Lutron to take care of its customers with the most comprehensive portfolio of light control solutions in the industry. Moreover, it uniquely positions Lutron for the greatest success in the market’s areas of growth, like simulated natural light, smart homes and buildings and tunable white.”
Nav Sooch, the Ketra CEO, said the acquisition will provide numerous benefits to lighting professionals and homeowners alike. “Lutron’s global reach, unmatched service, support, and outstanding reputation offer new opportunities to expand the market for Ketra’s unique Natural Light offering,” he says. “We’re excited to join the Lutron family and together bring new solutions to our customers.”
