“We’ve been very fortunate to have enjoyed extremely strong growth over the last five years,” Lumitec president and founder John Kujawa said in a statement. “Looking forward, we knew we needed to expand our team to ensure that all of our customers continue to enjoy prompt, responsive and technically savvy field service.”

The Derema Group will work with Lumitec by providing regional account management, promotional and pull-through programs and support, and logistical merchandising assistance, coupled with strategic geographical targeted sales to key focus customers.
