Below is a letter that Forest Lighting shared with its customers last Friday regarding MLS integrating Forest Lighting and LEDVANCE:
Dear Forest Lighting Customer:
November 16, 2018
As a trusted customer, I am writing to inform you of company developments at Forest Lighting.
As you know, MLS is the global parent company of both LEDVANCE and Forest Lighting. In order to maximize efficiencies, MLS has decided to integrate these two businesses in the United States and Canada with LEDVANCE having operating management responsibilities. MLS’ motivation is to accelerate product development, reduce internal costs, and most importantly improve service to our important distribution partners.
While alignment plans, including branding, resources and product portfolio, are in development, current Forest Lighting products will continue to be available for purchase while supplies last, and you will soon be able to purchase our products from “LEDVANCE”.
The SYLVANIA general lighting portfolio is a result of a proud legacy of over 100 years of lighting experience in North America, and I am excited to share with you these innovations and additional synergies. Please contact me if you have questions, and I will keep you posted on transition news.
Chief Operating Officer, Forest Lighting 404-519-3889
