Legrand through history
From its origins as a simple porcelain workshop, Legrand gradually shifted its focus to electrical wiring devices and is now the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures. In over 150 years, Legrand has changed in profound ways—moving from porcelain to electrical components, from wiring devices to infrastructure, and from electrical to digital technology.
Today our Group is harnessing the same capacity for successful adaptation to support the development of smart buildings. And even the most conventional products, such as power sockets and distribution panels, are becoming interactive.
