Fagerhult acquires 50% of the Belgian lighting company WACO

"Fagerhult Retail aims to strengthen its position as the brand which will be perceived as the ideal partner to bring lighting solutions to all segments of any retail group. From the flagship & outlets to the offices and into the warehouse, we have the answer." says David Francis, Director of Fagerhult retail division.

WACO designs and manufactures lighting products for interior use with a high architectural design value from their premises in Baaigem, Belgium. With a current sales turnover of € 2 million and 10 employees, Fagerhult sees great potential to increase this via this new association and cooperation.

"The synergies between the two companies are so interesting and exciting and we share the vision of a great future" says Johan Lemaître, managing Director of WACO.
