The Glint Acquisition Bolsters Luminii’s Focus on Being Easy To Do Business With By Providing Products and Services That Compliment the Company’s Existing Portfolio

Luminii, a leading innovator in architectural lighting solutions, today announced the acquisition of California-based GLINT Lighting. GLINT’s product portfolio was designed and engineered to beautifully illuminate spaces for improved well-being, while also consuming minimal space and resources. GLINT’s products feature a minimalist design profile that nearly disappears into architecture, while providing exceptional light utilization and glare-free visual comfort. Bringing GLINT into the Luminii fold enhances its lighting roster while enabling the company to further innovate new LED lighting technologies and products that service commercial and residential markets.

“We welcome GLINT into the Luminii family,” announced Jeff Parker, CEO of Luminii and a luminary in the lighting industry. “As we embark on this exciting journey with GLINT, we’re not just acquiring a company; we’re fortifying our company vision. At Luminii, our commitment lies in introducing highly discreet solutions that seamlessly blend form and function. The addition of GLINT enhances this commitment, bringing together their expertise in well-being-focused products with our legacy of innovation in architectural lighting. This collaboration propels us to engineer fresh possibilities, both within our current product portfolio and in exciting new solutions on the horizon.”

“GLINTS HERO® product family stands as a testament to empowering lighting designers and architects to achieve adjustable lighting. Jeff Parker further emphasized, “Thanks to its innovative LightShift® optical system, HERO eliminates the need for physical fixture movement or gimbals to change light direction. Additionally, the HERO profiles, with their minimalist and narrow design, seamlessly fit into challenging spaces where other downlight simply can’t, unlocking new possibilities for designing with light in creative ways.”

GLINT Lighting

Founded in 2012 as GLINT Photonics, the Silicon Valley-based company, headquartered in Burlingame, CA, emerged as a leader in innovative lighting solutions. Originally established with a focus on optical systems research, they introduced their first lighting products in 2021 under the brand GLINT Lighting. Led by CEO Peter Kozodoy, GLINT Photonics boasts a high-pedigree engineering organization known for groundbreaking work in optical design. Their mission was to bring revolutionary simplicity to illuminate spaces, emphasizing minimalist aesthetics and visual comfort.

HERO Product Range

GLINT’s flagship product, HERO, offers very low-profile linear adjustable downlights in Recessed, Monopoint, Track, and Architectural, featuring patented and proprietary LIGHTSHIFT and PUREBEAM technologies. LIGHTSHIFT transforms conventional downlight functionality by allowing effortless beam adjustment via a joystick-actuated internal mechanism. PUREBEAM ensures unmatched beam quality and uniformity, maintaining consistency regardless of the angle and throw. The HERO portfolio also features a universal light engine, creating a cohesive and consistent light effect across all profiles within a space.

GLINT Lighting will remain fully operational and will assume business as usual after the close. The teams will remain focused on servicing existing projects and customers. As operations evolve and grow among Luminii’s portfolio of acquired brands, the GLINT brand will increasingly integrate operations to enhance engineering and sales efforts across all product portfolios and regions. For GLINT Lighting, and all other Luminii brands, customers may contact regional sales managers with any questions about the acquisition, pricing, and product availability.

Luminii’s latest acquisition of GLINT Lighting marks its sixth strategic purchase in the past five years, highlighting the company’s commitment to entering new markets and strengthening its global manufacturing and product capabilities as part of its expansion strategy. Previous acquisitions include Optic Arts and Senso in 2019, iLight Technologies in early 2020, and Precision Lighting and RCL Lighting in 2021.
