JMM Lee Properties, LLC, based in Los Angeles, announced today that its RENAULT brand is available for U.S. license on a selection of home and garden power tools and equipment, including portable and standby generators, snow blowers, chainsaws, lawnmowers, drills and circular saws. 

“RENAULT is a legacy brand with a storied industrial history,” said Michael Lee, managing partner at JMM Lee, a leading global brand owner and licensor. “The RENAULT name represents durability and cutting-edge European styling; qualities U.S. consumers look for in power equipment, tools and lawn equipment.”
