Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA) announced the acquisition, subject to closing, of Focal Point, a Chicago-based privately held manufacturer of architectural lighting products.

This acquisition is Legrand’s fifth addition to its lighting sector. Legrand says it provides a high degree of autonomy to its lighting companies and supports Focal Point’s business leadership team in the pursuit of innovation and growth.
