Legrand AV to discontinue Chief Raxxess series by 2019


Legrand acquired Milestone approximately a year ago and the effects of this merger are still being felt. At present, Legrand has embarked on streamlining its product offering. Due to the volume of overlap between the Chief and Middle Atlantic rack lines, Legrand will begin phasing out Chief’s Raxxess series in January 2019, with the intention to obsolete or transition all Raxxess SKUs by the end of Q2.

The team at Middle Atlantic is prepared to ensure that projects continue without issues. Personnel have been designated from the Chief and Middle Atlantic technical support teams to act as dedicated resources throughout this process. Regional sales managers will be backed by experts from the Chief and Middle Atlantic brands (as well as Da-Lite and Vaddio) to assist with in the transition.

Derek Derks, senior director of customer care, said: “We believe whole heartedly that this decision will ultimately provide you, our customer, with the industry’s best AV rack experience. Middle Atlantic has the broadest portfolio of AV rack solutions on the market, designed for optimal performance and time-savings, enhanced with custom capabilities and backed by world-class service.”
