Norfolk was founded in 1985 and is a leading regional distributor of security, telecom, network and audio-video (AV) related products, supplies and tools. With 11 full-service retail locations and a 43,000 sq. ft. distribution center, Norfolk serves customers across the mid-Atlantic region, and will be part of Resideo's ADI Global Distribution business, a leading wholesale distributor of security, AV and low-voltage products.

"ADI is core to Resideo’s long-term growth, and this acquisition aligns with our strategy to identify and execute on tuck-in acquisitions that accelerate ADI's expansion in adjacent categories,” said Jay Geldmacher, president and CEO of Resideo.
