Recognized for its engineering ingenuity and excellent quality, Deco features a suite of innovative architectural products and recently launched its patented DecoMesh™ wireless lighting control, featuring IoT-ready fixtures that can be integrated into connected-lighting applications in minutes at a fraction of the cost and complexity of incumbent market alternatives.
The alliance between PQL and Deco will include process integration in buying, made-to-order manufacturing, product warehousing and inbound/outbound logistics. This level of cooperation is designed to ensure optimum pricing and service levels for their respective sales partners and customers, while joint planning and engineering will ensure that they remain first-to-market with technology and product innovations.
Together, PQL and Deco can now address any segment of the commercial lighting market with clear cost and technology advantages, from a simple tube retrofit to the most sophisticated lighting specification. The PQL / Deco relationship provides an integrated national distribution footprint and approximately $20 million in on-hand inventory.
“It is rare that two companies come together with such clear synergy for the benefit of its customers,” stated Andy Sreden, Founder & CEO of PQL. “We have always prided ourselves on our ability to pivot quickly with the changing lighting market, while being able to provide premium service levels to our customers. We are energized by the technology and vision of Deco and see our collaboration as a means of bringing enhanced value and options to the markets we serve through joint development of differentiated products, as well as the opportunity to offer feature-laden and user-friendly lighting-control solutions.”
Sam Sinai, Co-Founder and CEO of Deco added “For the first time ever, we can propose on virtually any lighting specification from A to Z. We can do so with a commercial advantage as our collaboration eliminates costly redundancies and optimizes product availability in a way our competition cannot. This, and the ability to write specifications around the patented out-of-the-box connected-lighting platform (DecoMesh™), will enable our channel partners to control even the most comprehensive lighting specifications within the segments they serve. The structure of our alliance now allows Deco to address quick ship and stock and flow transactions with operational excellence and best-in-class on time delivery and fulfillment. We are excited about what the relationship means to our loyal sales partners who have supported us through some difficult times and look forward to what our collective future holds.”
