CE Pro 100 Names Top Structured Wiring Brands
The structured wiring category sees Wirepath (SnapAV) and Legrand coming in at the front. Leviton picks up some dealer share to come in third.
CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.
In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
For the most part the Structured Wiring category remains unchanged from past years, showing much slower growth than other categories.
Leviton picks up some dealer share to close the gap between the number two- and number three-ranked brands.
