Sea Gull Merges with Lighting Firm

RIVERSIDE, NJ — Murray Feiss Imports and Sea Gull Lighting Products have merged to create one of the largest privately held lighting firms in the industry. It was done through a partnership with Quad-C Management, Inc., a Charlottesville, VA-based private equity investment firm.

Under the merger terms, both will operate under a newly created holding company, Quality Home Brands Holdings LLC. Each will continue to operate as stand-alone entities, with brands managed by existing management teams, while leveraging their combined resources and management teams.

“We’re thrilled to have completed this transaction,” said Susan Solomon Auerbach, executive v.p. for Sea Gull Lighting. “Both companies have a long-standing reputation as family businesses with integrity and quality products.”

Riverside, NJ-based Sea Gull makes decorative and functional lighting for residential, commercial and architectural applications. Bronx, NY-based Murray Feiss is a designer/importer of indoor and outdoor residential lighting.
