Innovaplas, North American leading manufacturer of above ground pool entry system, is proud to inform the Industry that it has successfully completed the acquisition of Lumi-O International of St-Jerome, Qc, Canada , serving the industry since 1982.
Lumi-O is a manufacturer of rotomolded spas, drop in pool steps, inground & above ground pool lighting system including installation services in its local market.
"We are very excited to enter the Rotomolded ’Plug n’Play’ spa category". Lumi-O has been in this category for three years and has a state of the art production facility.
With this acquisition, Innovaplas now owns all the patents and design patents for drop in steps from stackability to ballasting system of the Cake Style and other numerous design patents. "The positive outcome of all these past litigations is that we have judgments from the courts recognizing the value, application and infringements of these patents. It will be much easier to enforce any of these patents in the future".
The merge of these three companies now offer the most complete line of drop in steps products becoming a stronger player in the industry. Rest assured that customer service is our priority and will continue to meet your expectation.
Lumi-O will continue to operate as a separate entity with its existing staff.
This is the second project within twelve months of a long term vision in this category for Innovaplas’ & its Equity partner. The long term vision includes seeking additional consolidation opportunities in the Rotomolded Spa category and above ground pool entry systems.
