Forum Acquisition by Current Offers Synergies

Elevate your design to the next level with

TriGain® technology and Forum architectural lighting.

O’Blaney Rinker Associates is enthusiastic about the acquisition of manufacturer-partner Forum Inc. by GE Current, a Daintree company. Forum Lighting’s 50-plus–year record of working with the design community to develop and manufacture spec-grade products is exceptional. Forum will continue as a vertically integrated, standalone entity and enjoy numerous advantages as part of Current.

Current’s TriGain phosphor technology presents just such a synergy. Current has invested significantly in the development of an efficient, narrow-band red phosphor. TriGain technology offers great color rendering across the spectrum, with vivid reds – at no cost to the light engine’s efficacy. The highly detailed TM30 color rendering tool shows TriGain’s optimized performance. Few light sources can meet the criteria in TM-30 Annex E, and TriGain technology does so with high efficacy. Retailers, specifically, will benefit. Packaging and merchandise catch the eye, thanks to colors that pop.

Combining TriGain with Forum’s high-performance luminaires also offers virtually limitless possibilities for offices, wellness service providers, transportation centers, and more. “Forum’s focus on providing high-quality linear solutions for architects, designers, and specifiers makes them the ideal partner to expand our lighting portfolio,” said Manish Bhandari, CEO, Current. “Forum’s values and customer-centric culture are well aligned with Current. Current will continue to invest in Forum to deliver new solutions, accelerating their growth.”
