Legrand to distribute Quiktron in Canada
The recent acquisition added Quiktron and C2G to Legrand's Data Communications Division, strengthening Legrand's position in the data communications, IT and A/V channels
Vaughan, Ontario, August 6, 2014
– Legrand, a global leader in electrical and data network infrastructure solutions, today announced it is starting distribution of Quiktron in Canada through Legrand facility in Vaughan, Ontario.
Quiktron is a leading manufacturer of fiber optic and cable assemblies for the Datacom and telecommunications industries since 1992. The company partners with prominent distributors that offer a full line of data and communications products. With manufacturing facilities Dayton, Ohio and Hickory, North Carolina, Quiktron provides custom manufacturing of fiber and copper interconnects as well as the distribution of more than 3,000 core items.
Legrand’s acquisition of Quiktron and C2G brands would strengthen Legrand’s position and capabilities in the data communications and A/V channels while simultaneously providing Legrand access to new customer segments.
New breeds of digital applications and an increasing demand for streaming content at home and at work have driven rapid growth in the data center and the continued buildout of higher bandwidth communication infrastructures. Given the industry trend toward pre-terminated cable assemblies, Legrand would now offer its customers a broader array of custom and pre-terminated copper and fiber cable assemblies that are designed for flexibility and efficient installation.
“We are focused on providing a more integrated infrastructure solution including cable assemblies, connectivity, cabinets, racks, cable tray, and cable management solutions that will help address our customers’ requirements for next-generation data communications demands,” said John Selldorff, President and CEO, Legrand, North America. “The acquisition of these leading organizations underscores Legrand’s commitment to strategic growth in the data communications and A/V channels.”
The addition of Quiktron to Legrand’s existing data communications product and service capabilities would provide customers a more complete and fully integrated end-to-end solution. Additionally, customers would find increased flexibility in design, installation and support services from one streamlined source.
Quiktron products will be available through Datacom distribution and JFC Solutions are Legrand representative for this product line in Canada.
