Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA), West Hartford, CT, has acquired Kenall, Kenosha, WI, a manufacturer of specification-grade lighting and control solutions for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.
Legrand said Kenall will remain an independently operated, self-directed company under its ownership. Terms of the deal were not released.
Adding Kenall to its portfolio gives Legrand the ability to participate in additional market segments, with products that customers demand, while appealing further to the lighting specification community, said a release from LNCA.
Over its 55 years in business, Kenall has grown with offerings of specialty lighting for high-abuse environments such as hospitals, schools, public buildings, food processing, transportation and correctional facilities.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth in the specialty and architectural lighting segments through commercial, industrial and institutional channels,” said LNCA President & CEO John Selldorff. “With the acquisition of Kenall, Legrand expands its ability to bring innovative, intelligent, and solution-oriented products to new market segments enabling us to meet our customer’s evolving needs. Kenall’s unique products, customer focus, and innovative technology align perfectly with Legrand’s strategic market approach.”
