Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA), announced it has acquired Connectrac, a developer of flexible floor-based cable management solutions that bring power, data and communications to commercial interior applications. LNCA has an 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.
Legrand has a history in innovating in spaces, and Connectrac brings 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,” says 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,” says 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.”
