Mackwell and Erco in emergency lighting partnership

UK emergency lighting specialist Mackwell and Germany’s Erco Light Scout announced a new partnership at Light + Building today.

Mackwell will help Erco extend its emergency lighting range. The new series of products will be available from next week, including track lighting, downlights and self-contained fittings.

Nick Brangwin, Mackwell’s managing director, told Lux: ‘We’re really excited about this deal. We’ve been working on it for two years, with the aim of launching it at this year’s Light + Building.

‘Erco is a global company and thanks to this global collaboration, Erco will be able to offer a complete service universally.’

Mackwell has been an OEM supplier of electronics since 1979 and until recently was part of the FW Thorpe Group.

Brangwin said the Erco deal was ‘the first of many big things in the pipeline’ for Mackwell over the next six to twelve months.
