Legrand and Middle Atlantic will operate as separate companies prior to closing, according to the announcement. After closing, Middle Atlantic will operate as an independent business within Legrand.

Mike Baker, president of Middle Atlantic Products, will lead a new, 5th Division - Commercial AV -  for Legrand in North America.

“The success of our customers is our primary focus,” says Bob Schluter, founder of Middle Atlantic. “They rely on us to constantly develop innovative products and deliver exceptional service.  Legrand shares these ideals and together we share a vision to expand and grow this market.  I’m excited about the possibilities and the benefits for our customers and employees alike.”
