Morlee Lampshade Co. and Szoke Co. recently announced that they have reached a merger agreement. The company will still be called Morlee but will incorporate the Szoke line of product. Owner Jean Paul Szoke has decided to step down as President of Szoke Lampshades to spend more time with his family.
Morlee President Ronne Melnick says Szoke’s high-quality products are what makes them such an attractive partner.
“I have always had the utmost respect for Jean Szoke and the quality of his products,” Melnick said in a statement. “It’s only natural that he would look to our company to match his tradition of quality. We all wish him well in the years to come.”
