LMPG continues its growth and deepens its offerings in the interior architectural lighting market.

LMPG Inc., recently announced that it has acquired a majority stake in privately-held Vode Lighting LLC. An innovative, LED lighting solution provider focused on interior architectural lighting. 

Founded in 2006 and located in Sonoma, California, Vode is renowned for its adaptive architectural lighting systems, creating minimalistic and customizable solutions that are easily scaled to all types of projects.

We are welcoming to the LMPG family 100 incredibly talented team members who are true brand ambassadors. LMPG is very much looking forward to continued success at Vode and supporting the Vode team to expand its reach globally,”

François-Xavier Souvay, Founder, President, and CEO of LMPG Inc.

The company will remain an independent brand while leveraging LMPG’s operational capabilities, supply chain synergies, and innovative technologies. The three founders will remain active in the company: Tom Warton as Brand Ambassador, Scott Yu as Chief Creative Officer, and George Mieling as Business Development Advisor.

Ann Schiffers is a well-known and respected name in lighting and design.
