December 7, 2012 – GE Lighting has acquired Boulder, Colo.-based Albeo Technologies Inc., a privately held LED fixture manufacturer established in 2004.

“The addition of Albeo Technologies’ immensely talented team and its award-winning LED fixture portfolio enhances GE Lighting’s ability to serve as a trusted advisor to enterprise customers around the world,” said Maryrose Sylvester, president and CEO, GE Lighting. “This acquisition is a big boost for GE customers moving aggressively toward an all-LED building envelope in new construction and retrofits, including retail, commercial and industrial high-bay applications.”

Through the acquisition, GE says it is accelerating its ability to offer customers a more complete and integrated LED solution. Albeo’s products are available through existing distribution channels and, now, through GE’s global distribution network.
