Wiremold/Legrand, founded in 1900 as The Wiremold Company, and headquartered in West Hartford, Conn., offers the industry’s most extensive range of wire and cable pathway solutions for commercial, institutional, and residential buildings. These include perimeter raceway, infloor, open space, and work surface systems. Wiremold/Legrand also manufactures fire-stopping systems and power and data quality products.
It all began with raceways – thin metal channels designed to secure and protect electric wiring. Wiremold ® 500 raceway was introduced in 1916, and is still on the market. Today, engineers and architects specify Wiremold systems because they are designed for maximum flexibility, enhanced function, and improved aesthetics. Wiremold/Legrand is the leading source for wire and cable management systems that organize, protect, and connect the cabling infrastructure and actively contribute to sustainable building design and function.
Wiremold/Legrand also addresses another critical industry issue: contractor productivity. Electrical contractors, data/communications installers, and audio/video professionals know that Wiremold products have built-in features that save time on the job, eliminate waste, and reduce the possibility of mistakes that lead to call-backs. Innovative ideas like prewired raceway and modular raised floor systems are a big boost to contractor productivity.
Wiremold/Legrand has been a pioneer in lean manufacturing, in which traditional mass production is replaced with a process that flows smoothly in response to customer requirements, without requiring large or excessive inventories. Lean manufacturing eliminates waste and adds value by only producing what customers want, when they want it.
Looking to the future, much of the impetus for new pathway solutions is driven by the need to effectively manage increasingly complex power, data/communications, and audio/video requirements where flexibility and aesthetics are paramount concerns. Wiremold/Legrand will continue to develop innovative solutions that ensure maximum flexibility and sustainability, enhance aesthetics, and improve productivity.
