Client Overview:

Our client, with a number of plants and production facilities in Italy and abroad, as well as a successful, well-known brand name in more than 60 countries around the world, has been a part of the Legrand Group since 1989. Its acquisition of our client has given Legrand a brand name that represents, at the international level, the best traditions in Italian design and production.

Founded shortly after the Second World War, in a climate of fervent industrial expansion, our client was the first Italian manufacturer to tackle the problem of producing electrical components in light of modern design thinking: an attitude that is expressed not only by the substantial innovations that have been made in technology and production process automation, but also in the company’s care and attention towards the specific problems of contemporary household needs and uses.

Through further study of form, materials, and colour, these factors have brought us towards a new conception of design. At our client design isn’t just a decorative tool, it is the ability to participate in projects and create innovative solutions, with the capacity to positively effect life and work. This principle has led to the frequent renewal of the product range (20% a year), and in particular, the creation and introduction of new technology to consumers. Domotics is an important part of these developments and will continue to advance over the next few years.
