BELTON, MO — R-O-M Corporation has acquired the Lighting Solutions product line from Havis, Inc. The announcement was made by R-O-M Corporation president Jeff Hupke and Havis president Michael Bernert. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Company leaders say the transaction is a positive opportunity for both companies.
For R-O-M, the acquisition allows the firm to expand further into the fire service industry.
Both companies are known as innovators in the fire service industry. R-O-M was the first to introduce roll-up doors to the North American fire service in the mid-1980s and has continually enhanced its products since that time. Havis first entered the scene light market in 1982. Since then, Havis has established a track record of industry firsts including: the low-profile fixture; the 12V H.I.D. fixture; and gear-driven remote pole.
The purchase by R-O-M gives fire service customers a single source for roll-up doors, hose bed covers, cargo trays, LED compartment lighting, LED interior lighting as well as scene lighting products that include lighting fixtures, lighting mounts, handhelds and associated parts.
In the coming months, Lighting Solutions operations will be seamlessly relocated to R-O-M headquarters in Belton, MO, a Kansas City suburb. To service its existing products and the added Lighting Solutions line, R-O-M's nationwide sales resources include nine dedicated Territory Managers and eight Customer Development Representatives. The Lighting Solutions Product Manager for Havis, Cameron Blain, will assume the same duties with R-O-M. In addition to Mr. Blain, R-O-M will also add a member to its engineering team, a customer development representative, and up to 10 production jobs.
