WEST HARTFORD, CT., October 22, 2019 – Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA), today announced it has acquired Connectrac, a leader in the development of flexible floor-based cable management solutions that bring power, data and communications to commercial interior applications. LNCA has a strong expertise in power distribution and cable management and adding Connectrac to its portfolio gives the company the ability to reach additional market segments as well as a platform to expand their ecosystem in commercial interiors.
For Facility Managers and Planners in particular, this means Connectrac is now part of a large and growing portfolio of interiors-related Legrand products and brands like adorne (fine light switches, outlets and more), Wattstopper (lighting controls and building systems), OCL (unique custom lighting), Pinnacle (architectural lighting), Chief (display and other mounts), and Wiremold (furniture power devices, cable management solutions, floor boxes, poke-thru devices and more). Also within the Legrand family are many of the best known A/V brands along with outdoor charging stations and power access options by Wiremold.
Legrand has a rich history in innovating in new spaces, and Connectrac brings new open space product solutions designed for flexible work areas. This also supports Legrand’s on-going 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, President and CEO of Legrand North and Central America. “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.”
Founded in 2005 by licensed architect Clint Strong and Desiree Edwards, Connectrac offers products with the flexibility to meet the demands for new technology connectivity while maintaining the aesthetic and structural integrity of the building.
“We are excited to be joining Legrand and the opportunity to deliver more comprehensive solutions to our customers,” said Clint Strong, Co-Founder of Connectrac. “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.”
