Assisted Living Solutions: Legrand signs a partnership agreement with a French local authority.
François Hollande, Chairman of Corrèze Conseil Général (County Council), and Gilles Schnepp, the Legrand Group CEO, signed a partnership agreement covering assisted living solutions in Corrèze.
This partnership involves setting up the very first economic and industrial project aimed at large-scale deployment of solutions for home automation and advanced, intercommunicating remote assistance for dependent persons.
Legrand and Corrèze Conseil Général will be cooperating closely throughout the project, from design through to deployment of these solutions among 2,200 people who will thus benefit from home automation equipment designed to give them greater independence.
Through its specialist subsidiary Intervox, Legrand will ensure the design and marketing of the communication solutions involved towards a target group of remote assistance professionals, while also providing home automation training for electrical installers at its Innoval training facility in Limoges.
Yet another opportunity for Legrand to demonstrate its commitment to the high growth-potential assisted living market.
