Legrand North and Central America (LNCA) announced on October 22 it acquired Connectrac, which develops and offers flexible floor-based cable management solutions that bring power, data, and communications connections to commercial interior applications. When announcing the acquisition, LNCA said it has “strong expertise in power distribution and cable management,” and this acquisition provides the company “the ability to reach additional market segments as well as a platform to expand [our] ecosystem in commercial interiors.”
LNCA added that Connectrac brings new open-space product solutions that are designed for flexible work areas—which supports Legrand’s initiatives to build relationships with architects and designers, end users, and furniture dealers for a range of commercial-interiors applications.
“Flexible access to power is more critical than ever before, given the high volume of mobile devices and the desire to connect from anywhere in the space—not just near the walls,” said John Selldorff, LNCA’s president and chief executive officer. “The acquisition of Connectrac allows us to bring together a unique set of solutions, designed to meet the needs of building owners and occupants at all stages of the building lifecycle.”
Connectrac was founded in 2005 by Clint Strong and Desiree Edwards. “We are excited to be joining Legrand and the opportunity to deliver more-comprehensive solutions to our customers,” said Strong. “Legrand’s organizational depth, global reach, and extensive product portfolio will provide us with the resources and tools to develop new product offerings and solutions that are more valuable to our customers and strengthen our position as a leader in the commercial-interiors market.”
