With more than 1,000 lighting manufacturers in North America alone, Merrimack believes that the industry is overly fragmented, and consolidation is inevitable as the next generation of market leaders emerge.

Merrimack represents manufacturers, sales agencies and distributors, design firms, contractors and ESCOs in buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions.
