We believe the addition of Lumberg Automation will complement the industrial connectivity portfolio of the recently acquired Hirschmann Automation and Control and reinforce Belden's leadership in the industrial market. With Belden's expanding global reach and this strong portfolio, we expect to accelerate our revenue growth in the industrial market."
