Schneider Electric forges a distribution partnership
with NVC Lighting to expand coverage in China and
boost its LifeSpace business
Rueil-Malmaison (France), July 21, 2011 – Schneider Electric announced today that it has entered
into a partnership with NVC Lighting Holding Limited (“NVC Lighting”) to speed up its market
penetration in smaller cities in China via NVC Lighting’s well established diffused channels.
The number of homes, small offices and buildings in smaller Chinese cities and townships is rising
continuously and presents a huge potential market for Schneider Electric’s LifeSpace* business.
The partnership with NVC Lighting, which will accelerate the market penetration roadmap of
Schneider Electric in those cities, is materialized by:
• a mutually beneficial distribution agreement to sell LifeSpace products throughout NVC
Lighting’s vast distribution network,
• the acquisition of 9.2% of NVC Lighting’s capital,
• the acquisition of some of the assets of Chongqing Enlin Electric Co. Ltd. that manufactures
NVC brand wiring devices and low voltage products under licensing agreement, representing
approximately ~EUR16m of sales and about 700 employees.
The partnership will give Schneider Electric an exclusive access to diffused channels and bring forth
strong revenue synergies. NVC Lighting has a solid presence in China with broad diffused channels
and extensive retail management experience. It has the access to over 3,000 retail outlets, half of
which are located in smaller cities and townships. This distribution channel is well suited for the
Group’s LifeSpace products and is complementary to the already wide Schneider Electric network for
other low voltage products.
Eric Rondolat, Executive Vice-President of Schneider Electric’s Power Asia Pacific, commented: “It is
estimated that in China as many as 120 million people will migrate to cities in the next five years.
Our LifeSpace offering is particularly attractive for these customers and a partnership with NVC
Lighting will be a fantastic opportunity to make it widely available throughout their diffused network.
We’re also confident that the collaboration with NVC Lighting will be a successful and mutually
beneficial experience for both companies.”
The acquisition of the assets of Chongqing Enlin Electric Co. Ltd. is subject to regulatory approvals.
* LifeSpace activity includes wiring devices, control devices and systems and VDI (Voice, Data and Image) systems
