Acolyte to expand sales, design presence throughout Europe

Acolyte, a leading provider of LED lighting solutions for more than 15 years, is expanding its sales and design presence in Europe.

The architectural lighting division of GENLED Brands™, Acolyte owns and operates state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Europe, Asia and the United States where it engineers, produces and assembles premium LED components. Acolyte offers custom design and fabrication as well as a full line of fixtures, controls and mounting accessories – all with world-class customer service that enlists a global network of local experts.

Through collaboration with international designers, Acolyte products are found in major installations around the world, from first-class hotels and high-end restaurants to luxury homes and sparkling modern sports stadiums.

Acolyte, which already enjoys a stellar reputation among more than 60 representative agencies in the United States, recently completed a restructuring that has the company in full growth mode and ready to expand its scope, bolstering its sales team and distributor network.

Acolyte’s bustling manufacturing facility in Europe translates to higher quality and shorter lead times for European customers that don’t have to deal with shipping delays and international tariffs. The company is adding new staff, recruiting and hiring across Europe to fuel the expansion, while maintaining their growing business in the North America, Pacific and MEINA regions with the same stellar attention to detail and focus on first-rate customer service at its state-of-the-art global headquarters in the United States and European HQ in Amsterdam.

“As national vaccine programs take hold and the economy begins to rebound in the EU, now is the perfect time for Acolyte to fully embrace the European market,” said Scott Vontobel, president and CEO of GENLED Brands™. “The logical next step for our business involves growth in Europe. The world is pushing for cutting-edge technology in human-centric lighting and sustainable energy use, and we manufacture products in Europe that fill the bill. It makes perfect sense that if we create these products in Europe, we should sell them here, too.”

The Acolyte product line includes complete customizable channel fixtures that feature an incredibly diverse selection of RibbonLyte, unique bendable LED neon products, exterior wall washers and grazers, pendants, customizable backlights and luminous panels.

Acolyte also has crossover access with AgiLight, the LED signage division of GENLED Brands™. Long established in Europe and trusted by some of the biggest names in retail, sports, automotive and hospitality, AgiLight produces premium 12V and 24V LED signage modules and fluorescent replacement products used in channel letters, box signs and cabinet signs around the world. AgiLight customers can now easily order Acolyte’s architectural lighting products through their current representatives; likewise, Acolyte customers can crossover to obtain AgiLight signage products.
