Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA), a specialist and innovator in power, light and data technologies for homes, workplaces and data centers, announced it is opening a new distribution center in Moreno Valley, California.
The new facility replaces an existing distribution center in Rancho Cucamonga, California and will accommodate Legrand’s growing product portfolio, resulting from multiple acquisitions over the last two years. The company says the new distribution center will be deploying a range of new automation technologies designed to improve customer service and logistics, while decreasing the time required for an order to be prepared for shipping.
“As we continue to expand our market presence in North America both organically and through additional acquisitions, we are constantly seeking new ways to make it easier for our customers to do business with Legrand,” comments John Selldorff, President and CEO, Legrand, North and Central America. “The investment in this facility is part of a broader plan to continue streamlining and evolving our operations at multiple company locations across the country.”

At 340,000 square-feet, the Moreno Valley complex is more than double the size of the previous distribution center facility, and is expected to create approximately 40 new jobs over the next three years. From its opening, it will support Legrand’s Electrical Wiring Systems, Building Control Systems and AV divisions -- with the capacity to support additional business units in the future.
Ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in the country, Moreno Valley is home to over 4,500 companies including numerous Fortune 500 organizations. The City of Moreno Valley also provided key support with assisting Legrand in bringing the facility to operational status on schedule.
A formal ribbon cutting ceremony for the new facility located at 24975 Nandina Ave, Moreno Valley, California, will take place on Thursday, November 14th at 12:00pm PST.
