John Kujawa, an engineer with more than 20 years in product development, operations and marketing, has founded Lumitec, a designer and manufacturer of marine LED lighting.

Headquartered in Delray Beach, Fla., Lumitec offers a full range of configurable marine LED lighting.

“We had extensive conversations with several boat manufacturers to find out what they really wanted in a lighting partner,” said Kujawa, the company president. “Obviously, quality and value are paramount. Where we really saw the opportunity to differentiate ourselves was in offering a bow-to-stern lighting solution with a cohesive look and feel — all from a single, reliable supplier.”

Lumitec’s design, testing and manufacturing is done at its Florida headquarters.

The company will be showcasing its complete line of interior, exterior and underwater LED lights at the Oct. 6-8 International Boat Builders’ Exhibition & Conference.
