Kingspan Light + Air (KLA), a provider of daylighting products and division of
Kingspan Group PLC, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Major Industries Inc. The deal is expected to close in the coming weeks pending regulatory approval.
“Kingspan Light + Air aims to be the global leader in daylighting and natural ventilation,” says Bill Hogan, president of The Americas, at Kingspan Light + Air. “This acquisition allows us to enhance the solutions we offer to our customers, expand the adoption of daylight in the built environment and continue our growth in North America. We’re thrilled to welcome the Major Industries team into the Kingspan Light + Air organization.”
In a letter sent to customers about the acquisition, Hogan noted that both KLA and Major will continue to operate as independent companies for the foreseeable future. “As such, it’s business as usual — all existing and quoted orders will remain unchanged, and you will not experience any interruption to your business as a result of this acquisition.”
Jeff Voight, vice president of operations at Major Industries, added, “Joining Kingspan Light + Air will allow us to accelerate our growth and reach more customers by highlighting the benefits of daylighting.”
Samatha Becker, product marketing manager for KLA, says the company looked at Major Industries because “they have a strong product offering themselves, so it allows us to… help evangelize daylighting a bit better.”
She also said that the companies will continue to operate as is, so there won’t be any merging of the brands or changes for employees.
This isn’t Kingspan’s first acquisition in the daylighting industry. The company previously acquired CPI Daylighting in 2018.
