First in a broader LED lighting platform‐build initiative

Philadelphia, PA, June 13, 2018 – Inverness Graham, a private investment firm based in suburban Philadelphia, is pleased to announce the acquisition of EiKO Global, LLC (“EiKO” or the “Company”). Headquartered in Shawnee, Kansas, EiKO distributes its branded innovative LED lamps and fixtures globally.
