The business, which provides LED products (example pictured) and control systems to customers in commercial, industrial, municipal and residential markets, reportedly enjoyed sales of US$1.7 billion in 2018. Eaton’s overall sales for the same year were reportedly US$21.6 billion.

Goldman Sachs is serving as financial advisor for the potential transaction, which was discussed last week during the company’s annual investor conference.
