In 1942 fishmongers Charles and Frank Purley, fed up with the high cost of ice, developed a refrigeration system to keep their fresh fish chilled. Lec was born, and over subsequent decades has grown to become the refrigeration brand of choice for many UK households.
In 2005 Lec became part of Glen Dimplex Home Appliances. Today the brand also provides commercial and industrial refrigeration solutions in a diverse range of categories, from catering to healthcare.
Lec continues to grow and is fully committed to delivering a wide range of products that offer style, functionality, choice and, critically in today’s world, energy efficiency.
