Our Story

The Legrand Story is built on our vision of improving lives by transforming spaces where people live, work and meet. We do this by providing electrical and digital infrastructures and connected solutions that are simple, innovative and sustainable. Learn about our story below.

We choose to excel continuously in the electrical and digital infrastructure space. We are a world leader in Wiring Devices and Wire & Cable Management and #1 and #2 in our major offerings: AV, Lighting & Controls, Electrical and Data Center.

We focus on their experience & strive to exceed their expectations. For channel partners, we stand behind our products so if there are challenges, they don't carry the burden unreasonably. For installers, one focus is ease of installation. For end users, we think about ease of use & benefits. We also think of the people they hire – the architects, engineers, specifiers & designers.

Inextricably linked, our values and purpose guide us day by day. Each and every one of us acts to improve lives. Our purpose relies on five unifying values which are at the heart of our actions and decisions. We seize the future. We move in sync. We embrace inclusion. We are dependable. And we strive for simplicity.

People used to ask much less of the buildings where they lived and worked. Is there power? Where are the lights? Will I be safe? Today, people want more. They want simplicity, beauty, and energy efficiency. They yearn for spaces where they can do their best work and be their best selves. And we make all that happen.

We believe that adding customer value through innovation is key to our success. We invest 5% of annual sales in Research & Development.

As a leader in CSR, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, applying circular economy principles in our product design & manufacturing, promoting diversity & inclusion, and ensuring our employees' health & safety, professional development, & adherence to the highest ethical standards.
