Lagrand Wiremold is a foundational name in the history of lean. In 1991, the company began its iconic and dramatically successful lean transformation that has been the subject of countless articles, books, and presentations. After its acquisition by Legrand in 2000, it faced and met the challenges of sustaining lean principles while adapting to being part of a diverse multi-national organization. Today, company wide lean initiatives enable Legrand to drive improvement in competitive markets across the globe. This is a truly unique 30 year story of lean transformation, sustainment, improvement, and growth.
