Legrand, North and Central America(LNCA) announced that it acquired Kenall, a manufacturer of innovative, energy efficient and sustainable specification grade lighting and control solutions for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. LNCA has a strong presence in the lighting market and adding Kenall to its portfolio gives the company the ability to participate in additional market segments, with products that customers demand, while appealing further to the lighting specification community.

Since its founding over 55 years ago, Kenall has experienced consistent growth in the specialty lighting segment (dedicated to specialized applications and to critical non-residential environments); providing intelligent, durable and sustainable lighting solutions for high abuse environments such as hospitals, schools, public building, food processing, transportation and correctional facilities. Their unique solutions, combined with LNCA’s other lighting entities and business lines, will enable the company to deliver more innovative, tailored products combined with the best customer service in the industry.

Together, Legrand and Kenall will be better positioned to create and support a broader range of lighting and controls solutions to meet their customers’—agents/partners, specifiers, and contractors–ever-changing demands. 

Legrand has a long history of acquiring complementary companies as part of its continued growth strategy and believes the best path to success is to support and invest in the companies it acquires. Additionally, the company supports independent and collaborative leadership in its organization to best serve the needs of its customers. Moving forward, Kenall will remain an independently operated, self-directed company.
