MK Illumination unveils a new office, warehouse, and production facility in the USA

The new location will service the Mid-Atlantic States and current accounts in PA, DE, MD, DC, VA & NC.

American Christmas, part of MK Illumination group of companies, opened up its MK Illumination USA office this summer with a full-time team relocating from New York to staff the new location. The team will be led by Dan Casterella (CE), Robert Soloff (President), Brian Cohen (Executive VP of Sales), and Paul Genova (Executive VP of Finance).

When asked about the new office, Brian Cohen said, “We are very excited to finally have boots on the ground. Having serviced this area for over 10 years and getting to know the people and places, I couldn’t be happier that we now have a presence here.”

The operation in Jessop, which is branded as MK LLC, is an active step to integrate US operations and align with the organisation’s global leaders and partners. 

“MK Illumination USA will operate identically to the American Christmas operation in New York,” said Dan Casterella. “We plan on duplicating the American Christmas success story in the Mid-Atlantic region and to continue to do the same nationally.”
