Boston Warehouse Acquires GKI/Bethlehem Lighting

Boston Warehouse has acquired GKI/Bethlehem Lighting, a seasonal décor supplier of pre-lit foliage and LED flameless candle lights. The acquisition from Central Garden & Pet Co. will enable Boston Warehouse to enhance its recent entry into the growing market of LED candles and lighting, the company stated.

GKI/Bethlehem Lighting develops and distributes flameless candles and seasonal décor products, many using patented technologies, such as Torchiér moving flame candles, Aquaflame flameless candle fountains and Matrixflame digital flame candles.

Peter Jenkins, Boston Warehouse president, said, “Boston Warehouse is very pleased to complete the largest acquisition in our 40-year history. We believe Boston Warehouse and GKI/Bethlehem Lighting strengths will complement each other and offer our customers continued innovation in our categories of business.”

“We believe there are a lot of synergies between our two companies, and we feel that there is a bright future ahead,” said Jim Wenz, general manager of GKI/Bethlehem Lighting.
