FIRMLY ESTABLISHED MISSION

For more than 60 years Legrand has been supplying integrated solutions for lighting, heating, energy, network and access management in buildings. The Group's mission is to continue designing, developing and marketing electrical and digital systems that are both simple and innovative. Systems which promote better communication, smarter customised building management and tighter security and which enhance design, comfort and ease of use. Over 2,000 people work in the Group's consulting teams and design offices inventing the solutions of tomorrow. The Group's focus on innovation is underpinned by significant investment in R&D. Every year, Legrand dedicates an average spend of between 4 and 5% of sales to R&D which is used to explore new business areas. By monitoring the latest market trends and developments, the Group is able to be particularly innovative in new market segments such as energy efficiency and digital infrastructures. The Legrand design team also carries out exploratory, pioneering work, creating avant-garde concepts and blazing a trail into the future.

A STRATEGY FOCUSED ON TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION AND MARKETING

Innovation involves developing solutions that bring added value to the user. But that is not all. Innovation is not simply a question of technological application; it is also a state of mind - one which is held by the Group as a whole. Not just by the industrial teams and those in R&D, but by the marketing and sales teams as well.

INNOVATION FOR AN ENHANCED DATA CENTRE OFFER

France is currently ranked 4th in the world in terms of data centre numbers, with data centre space increasing by an additional 35,000 m² year on year. Acutely aware of the challenges posed by this rapid growth and its very specific needs, Legrand has developed a dedicated data center offer to deliver relevant, innovative solutions to meet the most demanding requirements of both operators and users. The innovative LCS3 dedicated digital infrastructures range of 19" server racks, high density fibre optic drawers and cassettes enhances these data centre solutions.

A continuing source of momentum at the heart of the Group's culture
