MORENO VALLEY, California, November 13, 2019 – Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA), a global innovation leader in power, light and data technologies for homes, workplaces and data centers, today announced it has opened a new distribution center in Moreno Valley, California.

The Moreno Valley complex is more than double the size of the previous facility at 340,000 square-feet and is expected to create approximately 40 new jobs over the next three years. From its opening it will support Legrand’s Electrical Wiring Systems, Building Control Systems and AV divisions with the capacity to support additional business units in the future.
The new distribution center will be deploying a range of new automation technologies designed to improve customer service, logistics and decrease the time required for an order to be prepared for shipping.
“As we continue to expand our market presence in North America both organically and through additional acquisitions, we are constantly seeking new ways to make it easier for our customers to do business with Legrand,” stated John Selldorff, President and CEO, Legrand, North and Central America. “The investment in this facility is part of a broader plan to continue streamlining and evolving our operations at multiple company locations across the country.”
