Lighting industry associations vote to merge

3 October 2011 12.30 BST

(UK) - Lighting Association (LA) and Lighting Industry Federation (LIF) vote to merge. New organisation to be known as The Lighting Industry Association.

Following a period of consultation with their members, both the LA and LIF held Extraordinary General Meetings on September 29th where a majority of members of both organisations voted to proceed with the merger of the two organisations.

It is expected that the new organisation, to be known as The Lighting Industry Association, will be incorporated early in 2012.

Rune Marki of MD of OSRAM UK and LIF President, commented: “LIF members believe  that the merging of operations of LIF and LA into one new expanded Association will be  beneficial to  the Members and the market generally, both in terms of better representation of the Industry and the provision of services to members, during a period of rapid technological change for the industry.”

Jonathan Lucas, MD of Elstead Lighting and President of the LA, said: “A great deal of work has gone into the proposal to merge during the course of this year and I am delighted that the members have voted in favour. A single stronger Association will better equip the whole industry for the challenges that we are facing in a rapidly changing business environment.”
