Located in Markham, Ont., Beghelli Canada manufactures architectural, emergency and industrial lighting products. While Ascot has attained 100% ownership, the business will continue to operate as a separate, stand-alone entity within the group, led by current general manager (GM) Bruno R. Ardito.
In fact, while its corporate name will soon be changed to Beluce Canada, the business will continue to market products under the Beghelli brand through an exclusive agreement, collaborate with the former parent company in Italy to source and develop new products and supply manufactured items to its counterparts in the U.S. and Mexico.
The transaction was recently closed and takes immediate effect.
