Acquisition strengthens Luminance Brands' presence and capabilities in the global ceiling fan market

LOS ANGELES, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Luminance Brands today announced that it has acquired Emerson Air Comfort Products from Emerson (EMR).  The acquired product lines from Emerson will enable Luminance Brands to expand its product offering in the global ceiling fan market.
