One mission: support the building revolution
The electrical revolution. The digital revolution. The connected revolution.
As a market leader, Legrand plans to support the evolution of electrical and digital infrastructures for buildings by offering innovative, connected, interoperable, highly energy-efficient solutions that deliver real benefits for users—all while strengthening its leadership positions across a wide range of markets.
With its workforce of some 39,000 employees, Legrand works hard to offer innovative solutions that transform spaces no matter where they are, making life better for users at work and at home.
From its origins as a simple porcelain workshop, Legrand gradually refocused on electrical wiring devices and has now become the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures. In over 150 years, Legrand has changed in profound ways—from porcelain to electrical components, from wiring devices to infrastructure, and from electrical to digital technology.
Today the Group is harnessing the same capacity for successful adaptation to stake out positions in the smart building market. And even products that are more conventional—such as power sockets and distribution panels—are becoming increasingly interactive.
