Nashville-based Source Lighting, LLC, has acquired Pat Kelly Lighting (PKL) with the goal of further strengthening its regional scope and expanding its manufacturer representation.
PKL has operated as a successful independent sales agency out of Louisville, Ky., representing top lighting manufacturers across the territory. Pat Kelly and her team have built strong customer relationships and successfully represented manufacturers through several economic cycles.
“I’m truly excited for the territory to continue to be represented well by the new combined teams from PKL and Source Lighting,” states Pat Kelly, owner of PKL. “Source Lighting’s industry knowledge, relationships, and dedication to their customers’ success complements what PKL has been doing and makes us a great fit together.”
Jonathan McKinley, owner of Source Lighting, remarks, “I’m looking forward to offering ‘Best in Class’ service and expertise for all of our customers across the expanded territory. Relationships that we service are our focus and we look forward to continuing the relationships PKL has forged with their customers. This combination of sales teams will be a big plus for the lighting manufacturers we represent.”
With its 8-person rep force, Source Lighting now represents manufacturers of indoor and outdoor residential lighting products and provides sales and marketing services to showrooms and distributors across Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Panhandle, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Southern Ohio.
