Legrand proudly demonstrates its investment in local manufacturing and innovation.

While Legrand is a global specialist in products and systems for electrical installations and digital building infrastructures, the company proudly demonstrates its investment in local manufacturing and innovation. As part of their ongoing dedication to Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) industry, Legrand Australia is celebrating its commitment to local manufacturing this Australian Made Week, running 20th-26th May 2024.

Part of the global Legrand network, Legrand Australia designs, manufactures and distributes over 15,000 items under several premium brands including: Legrand, HPM, BTicino and Netatmo. At Legrand, improving lives through innovative, sustainable and simple solutions is its core purpose. Legrand is proudly manufacturing in the Sydney suburb of Prestons, providing jobs to hundreds of Australians.  

Housing a dedicated research and development team as well as a local manufacturing and warehouse facility, Legrand's local hub creates and produces electrical and digital infrastructure solutions tailored specifically for the Australian market.

Palash Nandy, CEO of Legrand ANZ said:

 “Although a lot of manufacturing has disappeared from our shores in recent years, there are many positive benefits to operating an Australian-based facility, and that’s why Legrand supports Australian Made Week and the celebration of Australian manufacturing. Legrand’s local footprint allows us to remain agile and responsive while providing the best solutions for our local customers,”

Legrand’s premium range of exit and emergency light fittings are 100% certified Australian Made, offering peace of mind to customers wanting to know they are purchasing products that are both designed and manufactured locally.

Ben Lazzaro, CEO of Australian Made, describes the significance of supporting locally made products:

"Aussie products are made to some of the highest standards in the world. They are trusted and known for their safety and quality…When you buy Australian Made products, you are helping to employ thousands of Australians across all areas of the supply chain, strengthen local industries, and support local communities."
