F.X. Souvay Sheds Light on LMPG’s Acquisition of ALW

Lumenpulse founder comments on recent acquisition spree and shares a peek into the company’s future 


F.X. Souvay founded Lumenpulse in 2006 and the company quickly became a favorite among North American lighting specifiers and agents, causing it to grow to $56.5 million (CAD) in revenue within seven years.

In recent years, the company – which is now many companies with a parent called LMPG, Inc. – has continued to grow organically, but has also accelerated its growth in recent years through numerous strategic acquisitions. In addition to anchor brand, Lumenpulse, the company now boasts a robust and diverse family of leading architectural lighting brands including Fluxwerx, Sternberg Lighting, Pa-Co Lighting and Lumca.

On Thursday, February 16, LMPG announced its latest acquisition – California-based Architectural Lighting Works, or ALW. The ALW brand has a rich history and in recent years has seemed to expand its indoor and outdoor architectural lighting product lines to the delight of North American lighting specifiers.
