Catalina Lighting Inc., Miami, has purchased Tensor Corp., a Boston-based international designer, manufacturer, and distributor of lighting products for residential and office environments. Tensor CEO and sole owner, Roger Sherman, will join Catalina Lighting in a senior sales capacity. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Robert Varakian, CEO of Catalina Lighting, said he was pleased to be able to add the Tensor Corp. brand to Catalina Lighting's product offerings. “Tensor has done an excellent job in developing its desk lighting category, particularly its ‘Vision Max’ daylight lighting program.
