Legrand Presses Further into Lighting Control with Acquisition of CP Electronics

Electrical and diversified products manufacturer Legrand, Limoges, France, has purchased CP Electronics, London, UK, a manufacturer of lighting control systems and other electrical equipment.

Legrand said in announcing the deal that CP Electronics complements the company’s existing offerings for the commercial market in the UK. CP Electronics primarily concentrates on electrical control equipment including programmable lighting controls, motion detectors, time switches, sensors, dimmers and HVAC controls.
