About Us

About Us
Bringing It All To Light

For more than a quarter of a century, Focal Point, a brand of Legrand, has brought it all to light with beautiful, efficient luminaires and acoustic solutions that stand the test of time, human-centric technology, and a commitment to being easy to do business with.

We are vertically integrated, Chicago-based architectural lighting and integrated acoustical systems manufacturer and pride ourselves on delivering exceptional products and services to those who specify and install them. Because we’re separated by hallways and not highways, we control the process from conceptual design, to engineering, to manufacturing, through to shipping. As a result, we provide superior quality, customization capabilities, and quick answers, all from right here, in the middle of America.

In February 2020, we were acquired by Legrand, a global leader in electrical, digital building, and data center infrastructures. Legrand transforms the spaces where people live and work, through innovative products and solutions that deliver and manage power, light and data. Part of French-based Legrand Group, Legrand North and Central America (LNCA) is the company’s largest division and the Lighting Sector counts five leading, North American lighting brands.
