Nearly one year after being acquired by private investment firm Atar Capital in 2021, Universal Lighting Technologies and Douglas Lighting Controls will be rebranded as Universal Douglas.

“We’re proud of our combined 125-year history and leadership in the commercial lighting and controls industry and this new brand signifies a new era for Universal Douglas,” said Chris Holstein, VP/Product Management & Marketing for the new entity. “Our new Universal Douglas brand amplifies the extensive value and solutions we provide to our customers, including smart controls, LED drivers, modules, retrofit systems, complete and integrated fixtures, and more with the personalized approach they’ve come to know for decades.”

The brand’s tagline – “More Than Lighting. Solutions.” – speaks to the company’s commitment to delivering customized lighting and controls systems to meet the needs of its clients. As a key partner to leading fixture manufacturers and distributors, Universal Douglas delivers components and complete systems with personalized support.

“Among our solutions, Universal Douglas provides sensors and fixtures for simple stand-alone facilities, as well as equipment for complex multi-building campuses requiring sophisticated networked control systems,” Holstein added. “Our new brand, Universal Douglas, reflects the amazing synergy achieved through combining the solutions and expertise of two great organizations.”
