Carlsbad, California – January 10, 2024. 

Auroralight, the leading estate-quality landscape and architectural lighting manufacturer, has been acquired by Kuzco Group, a leading modern lighting manufacturer in North America. This strategic move reinforces Auroralight and Kuzco Group’s commitment to pioneering design, innovation, and unparalleled quality in the lighting industry.

Kuzco Group’s acquisition of Auroralight will expand the company’s broad offering, including current brands Kuzco, Alora, and Alora Mood, as well as the growing number of new categories offered by Kuzco Group, including smart fans, mirrors, and track systems. “We are beyond excited to welcome Auroralight and their beautiful, quality product to our brand portfolio,” remarks Nathan Yang, President of Kuzco Lighting. 

By combining design expertise and an unwavering commitment to quality, this collaboration will drive innovation and set new benchmarks in the landscape and architectural lighting industry and beyond. Auroralight will now begin to work with the team at Kuzco Group on new and exciting concepts utilizing what has made Auroralight the highest-quality landscape and architectural lighting manufacturer that it is today.  

The future is bright as Auroralight, and Kuzco Group express gratitude to their customers, partners, and dedicated teams for their ongoing support.
