Legrand Announces Rep Agency Changes

CARLSBAD, Calif. — Legrand, North and Central America (Legrand NCA) has expanded its partnership with Hossley Lighting and Power Solutions in Oklahoma and Southern Louisiana as the manufacturing representative for Wattstopper products.

Hossley Lighting and Power Solutions (HLPS) is the agency of record for Wattstopper products in Texas across the Austin, Dallas, San Antonio markets, Arkansas, and Northern Louisiana. The expanded partnership with Legrand’s Wattstopper product line comes after the merger of Hossley Lighting Associates with Lighting & Power Solutions in July of this year.

“I’m excited to announce our expanded relationship with HLPS, across the Oklahoma and Louisiana markets,” says Jeff Jervah, Regional Vice President. “The level of experience and resources resulting from the merger of Hossley Lighting Associates and Lighting & Power Solutions will facilitate our growth across OK and LA. HLPS has a proven track record with us in Arkansas and Texas already, and we’re eager to work with their sales team at Contractors, Specifiers, and Distribution partners in these markets.”

Hossley is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and is an employee-owned organization. Its commitment to delivering the best and most professional level of value-added service ensures that customers can count on Hossley to assist in lighting control designs and commissioning.

“We are thrilled to utilize our growing team of system designers, controls sales professionals, and field service and commissioning experts across a broader piece of the south central region,” said Mike Virag, Principal at Hossley. “Providing our clients with a positive experience at every point in the construction process is an aim both of our companies share.”

Legrand NCA has also signed on Specification Lighting Sales as its manufacturer representative for the New York and New Jersey markets.

Specification Lighting Sales (SLS) is committed to offering superior service, demonstrating value, maintaining relevance, and operating with integrity. Combined with its highly trained, dedicated team of sales representatives, this partnership is a natural fit for Legrand’s Wattstopper® product line.

“SLS brings an energy to the lighting industry powered by their technical know-how and desire to succeed,” said Keith Falkenberg, Regional Vice President of Legrand Business Controls Systems division. “I see a long-term future with SLS fueled by their commitment to growth and aggressiveness to be the best.”

SLS brings years of experience in lighting and lighting controls, along with a history of consistent positive growth, that will allow both organizations to flourish through this new partnership.

“Consistent with our commitment to constantly evolve and strategically align with manufacturers delivering best-in-class solutions, SLS Controls is pleased to announce our partnership with Legrand,” said Patrick Kisling, principal of SLS Controls. “With an industry leading partner and growing staff of experienced engineers, we have never been better situated to consult and support the local design and construction community.”

Both changes were effective December 1, 2020.
