CLD merges with Iberian Lighting

24 September 2014 16.30 BST

(UK) - CLD Distribution to become major shareholder in bespoke decorative lighting manufacturer.

UK based lamp and LED lighting specialist CLD Distribution has taken a major shareholding in bespoke decorative lighting manufacturer Iberian Lighting.

In a dynamic merger that unites CLD’s rapid expansion into LED lighting technology with Iberian’s vast experience in the design of specialist commercial and architectural products.

Iberian, this year celebrating it’s 50th birthday, is renowned for designing some of the world’s largest lampshades as well as other custom feature lighting elements.

CLD has a fast-growing technical department dedicated to the development of LED lighting technologies and producing a range of LED luminaires.

CLD’s MD, Rob Platt, commented on the move: “With CLD’s strong sales force and Iberian’s talented and imaginative creative team the two companies have a perfect synergy with one another.

“The move will offer an even more diverse and comprehensive range of tailor made solutions to clients and a greater choice of LED products for Iberian to be able to integrate into their designs. It was a really logical decision to bring the two together.”

Both companies will continue to trade as they are, retaining personnel and the distinctive brand identities that have helped establish each as a market leader.

The merger will also act to strengthen the lighting sector within the worldwide engineering design and manufacturing group, Penn-Elcom, simultaneously giving access to Penn Elcom’s well established global distribution and trading network.

Iberian’s MD Les Allitt said of the move: “With the advance of LED, we were becoming increasingly technically focused and had also outgrown our existing factory space. With our existing close relationship with CLD Distribution, it made sense on all levels to join forces.”
