Euclid, Ohio, May 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The US Lighting Group, Inc. (OTC:USLG), announced today that it has teamed up with Evergreen Cooperatives, an internationally recognized nonprofit focused on revitalizing urban neighborhoods by preserving jobs that build middle-class wealth, to transition its wholly owned subsidiary, Intellitronix Corp. to an employee owned model.
Intellitronix, a wholly owned subsidiary of the US Lighting Group (OTC: USLG), manufactures automotive aftermarket digital gauges for the antique and muscle car markets.
Fund for Employee Ownership, an Evergreen Cooperatives social impact initiative designed to fund company transitions to employee ownership, acquired certain assets of Intellitronix Corp. The Fund’s mission is “to make a positive impact on America’s economy, our capital markets, and people’s lives.”
The transaction benefits the remaining subsidiaries of the U.S. Lighting Group, Cortes Campers (www.cortescampers.com), Fusion X Marine (www.fusionxmarine.com) and our upcoming product line of composite off grid houses (www.futurohouses.com) which will now have additional capital to focus on new business opportunities, fuel growth, and ensure that manufacturing operations of those companies continue to expand. The influx of additional capital will provide US Lighting Group, Inc. with resources to focus on its newest ventures in the Composites and the Recreational Vehicle industry.
Paul Spivak, CEO of US Lighting Group, added that “this transaction strengthens the development and growth of our other companies and provides additional equity needed for up listing to NASDAQ.”
Jeanette Webster, Chief Investment Officer of the Fund for Employee Ownership at Evergreen, stated “this transaction represents the first manufacturing company conversion for the Fund. We are excited to add Intellitronix to our growing network of employee-owned businesses in the Cleveland area.”
