LEC

Expertise : 40 years of know-how in LEDs

LEC’s history is intertwined with that of LED itself.

In 1977, Pierre Valancogne chose LED to create light-signalling equipment that would need only very small maintenance and operating budgets. 

Marker-lights, designed and manufactured by LEC, were quickly used in car parks run by the company Lyon Parc Auto.

Many well-known specifiers – including the City of Paris – trialled these innovations to enhance or decorate prestigious works with originality such as the Cour d’honneur du Palais Royal, the Esplanade des Invalides or the Place Vendôme.

Hundreds of major projects have been fitted with LEC marker-lights and spotlights and are today eloquent witnesses of their longevity.

The Greenwich Meridian Line, the balustrades of Dublin’s 7 bridges over the Liffey River, the Mont-Blanc tunnel, the Monserrate Palace, the Grille Royale of the Château de Versailles, the Pont d’Arcole, the Pont de Recouvrance lift bridge or the MuCEM are amongst the most prestigious ones.

This history was built in Lyon, in close collaboration with regional manufacturers selected for their skills and proximity.

This know-how and this skill are, not only, recognised in Europe, but in many other international countries.
