Acuity Brands has announced that it has acquired Pathway Connectivity, Inc. Established in 1985 and based in Calgary, Pathway designs and manufactures electronics that enable entertainment and architectural lighting control systems to communicate with moving lighting fixtures and power devices, even when those products utilize different communications protocols.
“The technology and products of Pathway enable lighting solutions that are rapidly encompassing sophisticated lighting networks,” says Vernon J. Nagel, Chairman, President and CEO of Acuity Brands, adding that the acquisition was a strategic fit with Acuity Brands’ planned expansion with integrating lighting and controls solutions.
“For over 25 years, we have stretched the realm of the possible, integrating disparate lighting, and controls systems for demanding theatrical and ‘architainment’ customers,” says Dave Higgins, Pathway Founder, President, and CEO. “We are excited to join an industry leader and begin integrating our skills and intellectual property in order to expand the market opportunity as part of Acuity Brands.”
