Legrand, a leading manufacturer of products for electrical and digital building infrastructures, opened a South African subsidiary in Johannesburg 30 years ago. To celebrate this milestone, the company recently hosted a function at which the highlight was the announcement of its new general manager, Johan Bosch.
“Legrand’s approach to constantly changing markets encompasses the ongoing technological advancement of our extensive product portfolio. Energy efficiency, safety and enhanced aesthetics are all critical in the evolution of Legrand systems,” says Bosch. “The company has made a substantial investment in research, development and design, to adapt products specifically to the South African market.
The latest trend in the development of systems – including lighting and motion management systems – is to make industrial, commercial and domestic buildings more energy efficient. There is also an important focus in South Africa on enhanced safety. New Legrand CCTV solutions, emergency lighting devices, home automation solutions and video door entry systems have all recently been launched to the local market.
Legrand systems also include power distribution, switches and sockets, residential and lighting management components, cable management and structured cabling, as well as connection products. The extensive ranges feature innovative design to meet user demands and also allow for simple and efficient installation.
