Headquartered in Florence, Italy, TARGETTI GROUP has launched operations in Costa Mesa, Calif., that will operate under the name TARGETTI USA led by U.S. Business Development Manager Marie Paris. The new division will offer a full line of U.S.-approved products – from both the Targetti and DuraLamp brands – available through Targetti USA sales representatives.
 
“TARGETTI is very excited about this transaction to enable TARGETTI USA to operate as an independent business under new management to help us establish our long-term, growth in the U.S. market,” says Luigi Ferrando, CEO of TARGETTI GROUP.  “We have significantly improved the performance and versatility of our international offering in the architectural lighting business over the last five years, and are excited to have established a strong management team and innovation pipeline in the U.S. We are convinced that with an independently run U.S. headquarters, TARGETTI can grow further, attract more customers and increase scale as a leading international company.” The new management and representation is a result of the December 2014 sale of Louis Poulsen to the Polaris private equity group.

 
TARGETTI USA will officially celebrate its grand opening at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, September 16th from 6:30 p.m.  to 9:30 p.m. PDT at the Irvine Spectrum Center in Irvine, California.
