Perspective

A two-fold ambition for sustainable growth

By focusing on a single core business, Legrand can pursue a two-fold ambition: strengthen its leading positions in electrical and digital infrastructures for buildings, and become the benchmark for smart electrical devices by offering innovative, connected and highly energy-efficient solutions that can operate as systems.

 
Présence mondiale
The leadership advantage

Operating globally, Legrand holds leading positions in markets including France, Italy and the United States. In 2016, around 68% of Legrand 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.
