Chauvet & Sons LLC has completed the acquisition of ChamSys Ltd., the Southampton, U.K.-based designer and manufacturer of lighting controllers. ChamSys provides Chauvet a strong presence in the controller market, complementing its CHAUVET Professional lighting fixtures and LED video panels. “We are very excited about the opportunity to join forces with ChamSys,” Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet & Sons LLC, said. “ChamSys has a well-deserved reputation for innovation, quality and value…the same principles that are at the heart of our own Chauvet brands. Together, ChamSys and Chauvet are now in a position to better cover and serve worldwide markets.”

ChamSys will continue to operate as an independent business unit from its facility in Southampton. ChamSys’ Founders, Chris Kennedy and George McDuff, will remain as Managing Directors of the company and, together with Sales Director Tony Cameron, they will continue to lead its current staff of software and hardware engineers, operations, sales and support teams.

ChamSys’ MagicQ series of lighting control products will continue to be sold by the company’s current network of distributors, except in the U.S., where Chauvet will sell and support ChamSys products from its Sunrise FL headquarters. The CHAUVET Professional sales team will assume responsibility for ChamSys sales in the U.S. They will have the full-time support of Phil Watson, former CEO of ChamSys, Inc., who has been named ChamSys USA Director.
