As expected – in fact, perhaps a little earlier than most in the industry anticipated – GE Current, a Daintree company, has completed its acquisition of Hubbell® Inc.’s commercial and industrial (C&I) lighting business. The combined new business will be branded as Current.

The combined strength of two iconic lighting businesses with deep innovation heritage, strong brands, and application expertise strategically positions Current to focus all investments into lighting and controls solutions. The acquisition provides an enhanced distribution footprint, digital tools to service customer needs more easily, quickly, and efficiently plus strong new product pipelines and shared patented technologies.

“This is an exciting day for Current and Hubbell’s C&I lighting business as we unite to create a powerhouse in the LED lighting and controls market,” said Manish Bhandari, President & CEO of Current. “Together, we have an unmatched breadth and depth of products, solutions, and expertise that will yield greater innovation and service for our diverse customer base now, and into the future.”

Brands that are part of the acquisition include Architectural Area Lighting, Beacon, LiteControl, Kim Lighting, Columbia Lighting, Prescolite, Dual-Lite, Compass, Kurt Versen, Hubbell Outdoor Lighting, Hubbell Control Solutions, and Whiteway.

The combined business offers an extensive product portfolio of lamps, fixtures, and controls tailored to the C&I, Signage, Roadway, Horticulture, and Transportation markets. The acquisition also expands Current’s base of distribution partnerships and specific agent networks for the defined businesses and brands.
