Truck-Lite Co. said it has acquired Lumitec, a Florida-based supplier of LED lighting for the marine industry. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“Lumitec’s reputation speaks for itself as one of the most trusted lighting suppliers among both boat OEMs and end users,” said Brian Kupchella, Truck-Lite CEO in a statement. “Combining Lumitec and Truck-Lite allows us to take advantage of each other’s distribution networks and share technology, helping Truck-Lite to expand into different markets while staying true to our core business.”

Established in 1955, Truck-Lite describes itself as a “worldwide leader in heavy-duty and off-road lighting, telematics, engine protection, safety and visibility systems.” The company has acquired four other firms since 2004. It is based in Falconer, New York.

Lumitec was founded in 2007 by John Kujawa. He will continue to lead the business in Delray Beach, Florida. Lumitec supplies LED products across the boating industry and also sells into commercial markets.

“We see in Truck-Lite a partner with a strong philosophical alignment combined with deep technical resources and a massive market presence,” Kujawa said in the statement. “Our relationship with Truck-Lite expands our sales reach, broadens our access to suppliers and technologies and strengthens our ability to achieve our overarching goal of delivering exceptional value to our customers.”
