Kalco Lighting  has been purchased by a private investment firm with an interest in the decorative lighting and home accessories market. Snehal Shah, who served as Director of Product Development for five years, has been named President of Kalco.
A Kalco spokesperson says the acquisition will not change the way the company operates. The company’s Las Vegas corporate office and iron forge in the Philippines will both remain the same, as will its staff and delivery times. The spokesperson says the company plans to build on the reputation Kalco already has, starting with some new product releases in January 2011, as well as expanding the company’s custom capabilities.
