Hunter Industries has acquired FX Luminaire, makers of high-quality, low-voltage exterior lighting components. Expanding their presence beyond irrigation in the green industry is a natural progression for the Irrigation Innovators, who have been setting the bar and expanding the borders of residential and commercial irrigation for 26 years.
By combining aerospace-grade materials, superior workmanship, and a nearly architectural take on design, FX Luminaire, located in San Diego, has been producing high-value exterior lighting components for over 18 years, complemented by the industry’s best exclusive warranty of 10 years.
“With a solid current product line and many exciting new brands in the pipeline, including an energy-efficient LED model line, FX Luminaire is an ideal addition to Hunter Industries,” states Richard Hunter, President and CEO of Hunter Industries. “With our similar foundations in individual innovation, exceptional construction, and pioneering approaches to our industries, both companies have come together in an obvious marriage of tradition and reinvention. We are especially thrilled to team up with another local company so we can do this all with one of our own neighbors.”
FX Luminaire founder and President Joshua Beadle agrees, “We are honored to have the Hunter name associated with our products. Both Hunter and FX stand for forward-looking product innovation, reliability, and superior customer service. Together we represent critical mass: bringing our customers resource-efficient landscape components with a distributor and sales support network that will continue to define the industry.”
