Through a combination of the unwavering growth of the lighting solutions business unit and the July 2016 acquisition of ESSMANN Group, the new Kingspan Light + Air Division was created. With this new division, Kingspan is now strongly situated at a global level, in the sustainable lighting, natural ventilation and smoke management solutions sectors, providing an original vertically integrated offering to the market. With considerable planned investment in the division and by collaborating with both our new and current people, Kingspan Light + Air will become a vibrant business, providing a compelling proposition to our customers.
After ESSMANN, the division then acquired Bristolite Daylighting Systems - a North Amercian company offering an impressive range of technology driven, energy efficient skylights and smoke vents. As the leading North American producer of daylighting systems for the industrial and commercial markets, Bristolite Daylighting Systems has secured itself as an industry leader in the areas of approvals, certification, code compliance and energy efficiency.
Most recently the division has taken its first step into the façade market through the acquisition of CPI Daylighting, a leading North American producer of highly engineered, customised daylighting systems. With a strong commitment to sustainable design, customisation, architectural creativity and premium performance, the business provides highly specifiable solutions to both the roof and façade markets.
