December 18, 2015 – Legrand has acquired QMotion, which will become part of Legrand’s NA Building Control Systems (BCS) business.
“I am confident this acquisition by Legrand will continue QMotion’s strong growth, and provide further advancements into the commercial shading market along with lighting and smart home integration systems,” said Willis Mullet, owner and CEO of QMotion.
QMotion’s window shading systems will integrate with the lighting control and automation solutions offered by Legrand BCS, says the company, creating a “more comprehensive portfolio of advanced solutions that provide energy efficiency and lighting control for residential and light-commercial applications”.
“This goes beyond managing just artificial light; it’s about glare reduction, reducing heat load, scene-setting and other automated controls for managing light and energy,” said John Selldorff, president & CEO, Legrand NA. “QMotion products offer some unique functionality and energy-efficient benefits that will differentiate us from anything else in the market.”
