Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC) and Core Brands LLC merged. The combined company, now operating as NSC, is headed by President Mike O’Neal and remains dedicated to developing and manufacturing control, security, access, entertainment and personal digital health solutions, the company described. 

Anchored by the 2GIG security and ELAN control platforms, the new NSC is able to offer partners an expanded range of increasingly integrated solutions to meet the needs of their customers.

O’Neal said, “The combination of NSC and Core Brands helps us serve our customers with an unparalleled suite of solutions for the residential and commercial control, security, entertainment, access and personal wellness markets. [Core Brands President] Joe Roberts and I share a strong commitment to our customers, which will guide the innovation we develop into our products, services and programs.”

Roberts now assumes responsibility for driving product vision across the new NSC company as executive vice president of marketing & innovation. “The market is demanding a broader range of solutions that work better together across product categories, and this is a major focus of our innovation,” Roberts said.
