Inside Legrand's Acquisition of NuVo
NuVo Technologies has provided more details to CustomRetailer on the recently announced acquisition of NuVo by Legrand North America. NuVo will continue to be led by David Rodarte in his new role as vice president and general manager, reporting to Doug Fikse, Legrand president, Home Systems Division.
CustomRetailer: The announcement of the acquisition said that NuVo will operate as an independent business within Legrand's Home Systems division. Will its status be as a Legrand portfolio brand - for example, along the lines of Vantage and Middle Atlantic - or will NuVo be defined separately rather than as a brand under the Legrand umbrella?
David Rodarte: NuVo will continue to operate and sell products under the NuVo brand name in the marketplace.
