Employees buy Hunter Lighting
David Perry -- Casual Living, April 1, 2008
The management and employees of Hunter Lighting Group/Kenroy bought the assets and ongoing operation of the lighting business from Hunter Fan Company.
The new company, Kenroy Home, will sell an expanded range of lighting and home decor products to a variety of distribution channels under the Kenroy Home brand. It will also sell Hunter-branded lighting to a select group of accounts, under license from Hunter Fan.
Bob Pape, president of Hunter Lighting Group from 1993 to 2005 and most recently president of Hunter’s Business Innovation Group, returned to the business in November to lead the buyout effort.
