Robe Lighting has acquired Artistic Licence, which designs and manufactures light control products and is also the originator of Art-Net.
Financial terms of the deal have not been released.
Artistic Licence was founded in 1988 by Wayne Howell, and was originally involved with rock ‘n’ roll and theatre lighting technology. The company has developed to focus on the design and manufacture of solutions for more technically demanding installations.
“This is a great acquisition for Robe”, said Josef Valchar, CEO Robe Lighting s.r.o., “It provides products that complement our own production, and will add value to sales made throughout our global distribution network”.
The acquisition of the Artistic Licence business and products is an important part of the strategic growth plan of both Robe and Anolis brands, said the company.
“I look forward to helping develop the Artistic Licence business using the significant Robe subsidiary and distributor network” added Howell. “I am also excited to be involved with new product development for a brand leading business that has always been a key industry innovator”
