A comprehensive offer for commercial, residential and industrial markets

Legrand offers a comprehensive range of products and solutions operating as systems tailored to commercial, residential and industrial markets—respectively 49%, 44% and 7% of the Group's 2014 sales. From control and connection interfaces to cable management, power distribution and voice-data-image (VDI) systems distribution, Legrand provides a host of solutions designed to manage lighting, energy, networks and building access.

The leadership advantage

Operating globally, Legrand holds leading positions in markets including France, Italy and the United States, as well in new economies such as Brazil, China, India and Russia. In 2014, 68% of sales came from products ranked first or second in their markets.

These strong national positions give Legrand major competitive advantages, including the ability:

  • to sell products that are suitable for most national markets—where installer work practices and consumer tastes can vary enormously, and where products, their operation and their installation must comply with specific national standards;
  • to offer customers almost all of the products needed for an electrical installation—notably as integrated systems—from circuit protection panels to the connection of low-current sockets. Solutions like these help customers avoid the costs, risks and delays associated with buying products from different suppliers;
  • to draw on its strong leaderships to continue developing its positions with distributors, installers and specifiers.
