Following the continued growth and success of the lighting solutions business unit and the acquisition of ESSMANN Group in July 2016, the new Kingspan Light + Air Division was created. This move establishes Kingspan firmly in the sustainable lighting, natural ventilation and smoke management solutions sector at a global level and provides a unique, vertically integrated offering in the market. The focus of Kingspan ‘Light and Air’ is to grow and invest in the new division and in partnership with both our current and new people, create a vibrant business that will offer a compelling proposition to our customers.
Thereafter, Kingspan Light + Air acquired Bristolite Daylighting Systems, the leading North American producer of daylighting systems for the industrial and commercial markets. The company offers an extensive range of technology driven, energy efficient skylight and smoke vents. Holding a strong market position, it has established itself as an industry leader in the areas of energy efficiency, code compliance, certification and approvals.
Wishing to move into the façade market, the division most recently acquired CPI Daylighting, a producer of extensively engineered, customised daylighting solutions. Based in Chicago, the company places particular emphasis on customisation, superior performance, as well as both sustainable and architectural design, proving the roof and façade markets with highly specifiable solutions.
