With 11 full-service retail locations and a 43,000 sq. ft. distribution center, Norfolk serves customers across the mid-Atlantic region, and will be part of Resideo’s ADI Global Distribution business, a leading wholesale distributor of security, A/V and low-voltage products.

“ADI is core to Resideo’s long-term growth, and this acquisition aligns with our strategy to identify and execute on tuck-in acquisitions that accelerate ADI’s expansion in adjacent categories,” says Jay Geldmacher, president and CEO of Resideo. “The products and services of Norfolk Wire & Electronics complement ADI’s existing offerings and expand our reach into an attractive growth market.”

The Norfolk acquisition builds upon ADI’s presence in the data communications market with an assortment of copper and fiber cabling, connectors, racking products and more, according to the company.

“The increased need for high speed connectivity, growth in IoT industrial devices and the introduction of new technologies are driving demand for data communications products,” says Rob Aarnes, president of ADI Global Distribution. “ADI remains committed to ensuring our customers have immediate access to all the products and equipment they need to be successful in today’s market. This acquisition expands our offering in a growing category and will allow us to serve more customers.”
