Lutron Electronics Acquires Ketra, Provider of Natural Light Solutions

Lutron Electronics has signed an agreement to acquire Ketra, whose natural light solutions provide quality light, light that emulates daylight in interior spaces.

Founded in 2009 in Austin, Texas, Ketra offers lighting and control solutions that deliver light in residential and commercial environments. Its selection of light sources creates white, pastels and saturated colors, which enhance the look of any space and allows the user to tailor the light to meet the needs of the space. For example, enjoy an energizing light in your office – or a comforting light in your living room.

“Our company started over 57 years ago with our founders innovating the electronic light dimmer, a device that delivered light controlled by the end user,” says Mike Pessina, co-CEO and president at Lutron Electronics. “The range of light from Ketra complements the Lutron light control product offering and enables our customers to create their own environment at home and at work. We’re excited to deliver this expanded light control solution to the industry.”

Ed Blair, Lutron senior vice-president, said it was a natural extension for Lutron to expand its product portfolio with Ketra light sources and controls. “This acquisition allows Lutron to take care of its customers with a comprehensive portfolio of light control solutions. Moreover, it positions Lutron for success in the market’s areas of growth, like simulated natural light, smart homes and buildings and tunable white.”

Nav Sooch, Ketra CEO, said the acquisition will provide numerous benefits to lighting professionals and building owners alike. “The global reach, service, support, and reputation of Lutron offers new opportunities to expand the market for Ketra Natural Light offering,” he says. “We’re excited to join the Lutron family and together bring solutions to our customers.”

Ketra light sources are compatible with the Lutron HomeWorks QS total building control system and Lutron Quantum total light management system.

Ketra products are sold through select U.S.-based lighting showrooms and A/V dealers. To experience Ketra Natural Light solutions integrated with Lutron lighting control, visit Lutron at the Lightfair International tradeshow (May 8-10, 2018, in Chicago) or at the CEDIA Expo (September 4-7, 2018, in San Diego).
