Legrand North America, West Hartford, Conn., a global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, completed its acquisition of Middle Atlantic Products Inc., a manufacturer of support and protection products to mount integrated AV systems in residential, commercial, broadcast, and security applications, which now becomes the company’s new Commercial A/V division focused on AV products and solutions for commercial, residential, security and broadcast applications.
According to the company, the acquisition enables a more comprehensive offering of AV infrastructure products and solutions from one company to ultimately better service the needs of the growing AV markets.
“The Middle Atlantic brand, operations, and services are continuing as they always have, so our customers can continue to expect the exceptional experience we work hard to deliver every day,” said Mike Baker, Middle Atlantic president and now also president of Legrand’s Commercial A/V division. “Now that we have the backing and support of a global company, we will be able to consider new products and services that will only increase our ability to serve our customers and the installation community going forward.”
Middle Atlantic Products will be releasing several significant new product lines at the upcoming InfoComm commercial AV tradeshow, including a new rack series with patent-pending features. Executives from Legrand and Middle Atlantic will be attending the show and meeting with customers and others to gather feedback and answer questions.
