Luxit Group, a global automotive lighting supplier and an affiliate of New Water Capital Partners I LP, has acquired a manufacturing facility in Pulaski, Tenn. from Proper Group International LLC.

The 88,000-square-foot facility employs 140 people and is focused on lighting products and technologies. The Pulaski facility works to expand Luxit’s manufacturing presence in the U.S. It will add injection molding, anti-fog and hard coating, as well as assembly capabilities in a location close to many of Luxit’s customers.

“This strategic acquisition further adds to our vertical integration strategy and will also help us reach critical size with key customers,” states Stephanie Vedie, Luxit Group CEO. “We are confident that we will be able to better serve our current customers as well as offer a logistics advantage to new customers that would not have been possible without this next step.”
