With full support and backing from our parent company, Max Co - Japan, Lighthouse is delighted to announce its first acquisition; Tecsign in The Netherlands.
Over the last 12 years, our Premier Dealer in The Netherlands, has established itself as a shining beacon of professionalism, building an enviable reputation for sales, service and support, all delivered with honesty and integrity. Naturally, when Lighthouse UK was looking for a target to help establish a base in Europe, to increase direct sales and provide additional facilities to supply our dealers and customers within the EU, Tecsign was the obvious choice. Our approach was welcomed and following positive negotiations, a deal was agreed.
"To become part of a £500m+ turnover manufacturing group, with 2,500 staff, vast resources, unique products, hugely impressive R & D facilities and an incredible track record, was a fantastic proposition. Working directly with the team at Lighthouse UK, to build Lighthouse Europe BV, is a hugely exciting opportunity, which I cannot wait to start."
André van den Born, Managing Director, Lighthouse Europe B.V.
